Well FJC family, I think it's finally time to put my first pair of Icons out to pasture. They've had a good life. I've had them in shoe trees, shoe bags, and used shoe horns since day one. I've had them for a little over two years, and they've been gamed A LOT! They've traveled all of the country and walked countless rounds. They've seen good shots, bad shots, sunny days and torrential downpours. They've strutted proudly across some of the best greens in the country and trudged through some of the worst kept bunkers imaginable. After buying one pair, I know I'll never own another type of shoe. These are the shoes that have set the benchmark all others will be compared to. I have other Icons, but these beauties were my first love. They're tattered, beaten, and now they have a tiny hole, growing by the step, wearing in the heel. They're more water resistant than water proof now, but still, I'm having a hard time taking them out of the rotation. There's something amazing about a fresh pair of shoes. Maybe I'm sentimental, but there's something equally fulfilling about sliding my feet into old #52062.
Anyone else have a shoe you just can't seem to part with, or am I just nuts?
