UUUgh! I hate new shoes. I have since I was a kid. I currently have about 5 pairs of shoes but I always buy one pair I intend on wearing until they die. Sadly, these have died. I love the Nike mesh shoes. Once you break them in they are basically like wearing a sock with soles on the bottom. They're light, they breathe, and because they're black they go with anything. Yes, I'm one of those guys. I wear one pair of shoes dominantly over all my other pairs so I prefer black shoes so they'll go with anything I wear. A lot of people ask why I don't wear white, to which I say, "Um have you lost your mind?" I dunno, maybe I'm old school but I stick to what I like. You have to clean white shoes constantly. Black don't crack. The mesh shoes are awesome because you can just throw them in the washer and be done with it. DO NOT put them in the dryer though.
