It’s a heavy week in the world of fades, and today is no exception. Sent in to us by Michael Ford from Amsterdam, these Momotaro 1005SP‘s have seen their fair share of action in a quick couple of years. A combination of biking, skateboarding, and traveling have earned these jeans not one but two crotch blowouts (repaired each time), a busted knee, one restitched back pocket, and one that just didn’t survive. Now that’s dedication! Keep up with Michael’s brand on Instagram.
