believe it or not, these look to be unworn. waffles & heel/toe edges show no wear. saying that they show storage wear & the lateral right & medial left sides saw exposure to the elements. on those sides especialy there is surface dryness to the white rubber & widespread micro spider cracking however the rubber remains soft & flexible throughout. the only small spot of hardening is the brown discolouration to the lateral left heel at the top of the friction, however will not effect wear. there are several horizontal splits to the rubber just below the foxing stripe which could worsen. the waffle has darkened near the toes however still remains pliable. from experience, despite dryness these will hold up to normal wear. the pink is more vivid than the photos suggest
