You seem to be helpful, I appreciate it. I'm not just here tryna sell shoes, but its the first question I had as Ive never really owned a shoe worth talking about much. I take good care of my shoes though. My favorite pair is the Nike Big Hi Acs had em for 6 years before any visable wear showed. Have an old pair of Cortezes too and they're still in decent condition. I bought the Jordans specifically to sell though.
