Man, these things were made to last. As a cheerleader in high school its a given that I had a pair in just about every color. To this day, almost 10 years later, I still have pairs kicking around that I wear when I clean the house. After at least 1,000 washings, they're still holding up. I haven't gotten rid of them yet for the fact Im just impressed they haven't completely desentigraded yet.
