Before I tossed these faithful servants, I wondered how old they really were. Carbon-dating's too expensive, so I had to go by circumstantial evidence.
- Was complimented for my taste in Avia sneakers by a guy I used to work with. Time frame: 2000-2009.
- Converted to "lawnmowing only" use. Acquired dog in 2001. (Think about that; it'll make sense in a minute.)
- Purchased new at Just for Feet. Went out of business in 2004.
So, sometime between 2000 and 2004 is my best guess for when I bought them. That means they lasted about a decade.
The chief economic benefit I can see from wearing shoes out this slowly is, my estate sale may bring in a few pennies more than expected.
Better take up running again.
