What you see here is a broken-in and worn-out pair of Barracuda’s by PRPS, sent in by Sweden’s Mikael Oredsson. We’re all certainly impressed with the end result and so we’ve selected them as our Fade Of The Day.
Mikael says he’s maybe washed them just three times over a decade of wear (our hearts go out to his family and friends for enduring that), which, given his rotation, is a little extreme, even by our standards. Whatever he did, they look great; substantial indigo loss, excellent fades front and back, and most importantly, character. Character in the form of unique fades, unique distressing, and unique repair – of which we see a load of here.
A great pair, we rarely get to see pairs that have held up for a decade.
