If your black Vans sneakers look really cute with your shorts at work but are kind of uncomfortable, don’t wear them.
Your feet will not eventually “get used to them,” nor will they stretch out enough. They already made your toe bleed once, so stop.
You will seriously injure some tendons in your ankle while making a short sprint to the ferry (or the washroom to beat the lineup, I can’t remember) and you’ll be limping for an estimated 4-6 weeks.
Not days, weeks.
You’ll have to wear your blindingly-white and bulky New Balance sneakers anyway, after you get injured.
Heed my warnings for a pain-free summer. I’ll be limping my way to the subway for the next month or two.
