Breaking in!

No, I'm not the victim of a home invasion; I'm talking about my new feyiues. But we here at KFDU like puns. And for how tough it is to break in a new pair of kicks, it feels like trying to break down a door. My new shoes are black (yes I'm just that cool) and they bring me great joy, but I miss doing the sweep in my super slick shoes....

Maybe there's some way to wear down the treads with something... back in GA the trucker dudes would break in new hats by rolling them up and stuffing them in a glass of water for a few days. Get that authentic, worn down, stuffed-in-a-glass-of-water look I guess... And the hippie kids would break in their hacky sacks (remember those?) by running over them with their cars several times. So I have faith there must be a way to accelerate the breaking in of my shoes.

On the other hand, it was a lot easier to get out of straddle stretch with a little friction on my feet. So maybe I'll just let nature (the nature of my shoes anyway) take its course. I'm sure I'll sweep away the tread in no time. Or five kick it away... last night I learned erluquan up to the five kicks, so it's only a matter of time. New shoes = good luck?


  1. and i just started wearing in my new pair. my sweeps were not as horrible as i thought with them. train harder!

  2. i find the black feiyues much sturdier than the USAST ones so it may be a while! mine are still looking all brand new & i've had them a few months. see you all later!
