Top 10 Distressed Sneakers 

Not too long ago, the fashion world was all about “broken in” jeans. The distressed look in denim offered a style for both men and women that was hard to achieve without years of regular wear. And so this vintage-esque style became (and has remained) popular today. It only seems logical that over time this broken-in style would naturally progress to other items of clothing. And for that reason, the fashion industry has now started to produce pre-distressed shoes.

But these shoes don’t sacrifice any of the comfort that you sometimes lose in older shoes. Wearing any of them will feel just like slipping on any other pair of brand new shoes like recently released Balenciaga’s Paris shoes which has been causing a lot of fuss amongst the netizens..
