Dont think these lasted much more than 6 months with occasional weekend wear 

Where/how do you store them Ryan? strange question i know but UV light makes rubber deteriorate and crack and the more natural rubber they contain (generally higher quality) the more susceptible the are to UV damage, rubber will last forever if it's stored in the dark in an air tight container.. also worth noting is ozone damages rubber and electric motors emit ozone, so don’t keep your pumps in a garage with a chest freezers or nr the fridge in the kitchen (like i do with my daily wearers:blush:) don't store them in the same room as an air conditioning unit either and thy'll last much longer... or they could just be shit quality. :D

When they were new they honestly felt indestructible,  good heavy weight to the soles and a nice comfortable fit

It is annoying, especially when you can buy cheap shit like Vans or Superga, beat them to within an inch of their life and the foxing tape remains perfectly intact.

I get at least 18 months out of a pair of Van's and at the end they get used for gardening and whatnot for another 6

@Flash I have 2 pairs and no issues although I have to many sneakers so they don't get excessive wear. I had the same issue with my MIJ PF Flyers, the white ones have had no where near as much wear as the black ones but have started to split at the sides.

Hey folks, anyone overseas aware of a store still carrying a small size or two in the 1003xx 45' or 46' models? Very very late to the game I'm afraid :sad:

Hellers Cafe HC-2 Tagged size 33. 

One piece button fly, half selvage, and the reinforced gusset crotch are some of my favorite details. 


I hope that the waist doesn’t stretch out too much and I can continue to wear these without a belt.

@JRendon02 they look great, I think I have the same pair kicking about somewhere, plus another Hellers cut. I always like the reinforced stitching on the outer seam as well as in the inseam. Lovely denim and good for the warmer months. Thanks for the reminder.

Looks like stores in Japan are starting to receive their ‘46 25th anniversary jeans. No word from my proxy yet, but should be soon I hope!

@Broark I'm the same boat buddy. My proxy got the 1001XX 25th but not the WW2 yet. We'll get it eventually !

How are your proxies shipping those to you? EMS is still not shipping to the US if I'm not mistaken...?

Could be FedEx for me as well, placed the order with ZenMarket. We'll see which one is cheaper once the jeans arrive to their warehouse.

I don't know what EMS is waiting for to restart service to the US. It should be doable now.

I think it’s entirely dependent on the amount of flights coming in and going out to the US daily. I doubt that number has increased substantially yet.

Are those 2 jeans the only special edition products they're releasing for their 25? Seems very ... huh ... understated...?

@Broark even the pocket bags are grail status!

Why is it that jeans reach perfection just as they start falling apart?

 

I received a bunch of Wearhouse T’s via DHL from Japan very quickly at the height of the shutdown
