17 Year Old Shoes

It was back in June 2011 that I picked up my first copy of this 7". Released by Southern Lord, the OFF! 'Compared To What b/w Rotten Apple' 7" came and went in a flash. Two or three pressings sold out almost before I even knew it existed. Then I saw someone post a picture on facebook of the tour press, and I wanted one. Badly. Seventeen months later and I finally got one.

The tour press is on blue vinyl and comes in an alternate sleeve featuring a Vans shoe. I happen to have a pair of the same shoes. This is the oldest pair of shoes I own. I bought them in 1995, and here we are at the end of 2012 and they're still going strong.

That's great that you got a copy of this...amazing that you actually have a pair of those sneakers.
