Some things only get better when they are worn in, like your favorite pair of shoes or your armchair. In some cases, as things wear down, they reveal their interesting hidden sides that we normally wouldn’t get to see.

The most amazing pictures show how time wears things down, from statues being polished from hundreds of people rubbing them to floors wearing through from being stepped on so much. There are more pictures of things that wore down with time here.
