never been laced until today. the right shoe saw very very short term use as floor-display model, resulting in storage wear only to the friction. no uppers fade. the foxing stripe shows rubber bubbling perhaps from being over-cooked in the autoclave. there is however no change in the integrity of the rubber which is super soft & flexible.
