If we were very careful, that shoe would still be DS or VNDS (Very Near Dead Stock).
Then the day comes when we break them out for a flex. We pull out the perfect outfit to complement the kicks, lace'em up and slide them on. Then take one final look in the mirror, feelin' like new money -- it's on!
At that moment when we leave our door, the kicks are officially un-DS'd and are used.
But how do we evaluate them from that point forward?
