    You can put them in a box and ship them to me. You'll never see any yellowing.

    Just keep them out of sunlight, and humid areas. Put a couple silica packs but dont let it touch the shoe, and if you want maybe saran wrap them but thats allon you

    why would you never wear em? don't you like the sneaker?

    sounds like you bought em cuz of the hype and not cuz you actually like em.[​IMG]

    yeah.
    Just wear them. You can do everything to avoid yellowing but it's near impossible to predict what's going to happen in the next 2? 3? 5? 10? years.
    You can bet they'll be retroed again and again in the future.

    Which is exactly why I'm into sneakers, so I know other guys will be staring at my feet.

    Oh wait a minute, I'm not a 14 year old school girl.

    that's what shoes are meant for. wearing. honestly, you'll make more money investing in stamps if you want a hobby where you keep thingsbrand new.
