Keeping your sneakers deadstock or not is a choice that every sneakerhead faces with each new pickup. There is no denying that a pair of sneakers looks best fresh out of the box, without a crease in the toebox or the slightest hint of dirt on the outsole. Sometimes, our love of kicks takes things to levels that we would have never seen coming at that point of first purchase. Whether you keep them on ice for years or wear them everyday however, sometimes those kicks you like most end up cracked, crumbled, peeling, ripped, stained, torn and above all, unwearable. The path of getting sneakers to a nearly unrecognizable state is up to you, but after checking out 25 Crazy Photos of Destroyed Sneakers, we hope you choose to wear them while you have the chance.
