since i've quit, i've had the bittersweet opportunity to retire my workshoes. they served me very well. they were very comfy and cushiony the first 10 months or so. the last 20 months, they sort of hurt. but all the same, i will miss them. we went through a lot together. i was on my feet almost constantly and spilling hot water, coffee, milk, and various syrups and sauces on them all too frequently. the mere fact that they still even resemble footwear is a real testament to the saucony brand.
