Beaters

Beaters are those kicks you always choose to wear, even after they've been worn over and over again. In fact, at a certain point, you start to love every bit of "character" that shows in the form of creases, scuffs, stains, and that always lovely stench. Well, maybe not the stench. And without fail, even if you have 1,000 pairs of sneakers, you wind up with a pair of beaters.
