white rubber shows widespread hardening & dryness, only to the first foxing (stripe area). this area is brittle & will continue to crack & flake away. there will be loss of rubber chunks down to the friction midolse which itself is still soft & flexible, as is the waffle. vinyl collar shows splits on both shoes & both collar have lost its foam & shows significant breakdown to the internal heel. the insoles have been completely removed & will require replacement which wont effect comfort. 2 holes at both toes look to have been shoe-goo'd. box is original but a bit battered.
