Local dad Jim Willis has kept his running shoes in mint condition despite the fact that they were manufactured well over a decade ago.

“I’m pretty sure I bought these in the late 1990’s,” Willis recalled. “It just goes to show that buying something high quality and then taking care of it really does pay off,” said Willis, who has not jogged since high school gym class. “You know I might just slip these puppies on and hit the trails over by the greenway.” Upon looking out the window and realizing it had rained, Willis decided getting the shoes muddy would be a real shame.
