Can running shoes really start costing this much? (Read 457 times)

    Well, maybe some people like colour?  For example, I think Nike grey is so unbelievably b-o-r-i-n-g I wouldn't be seen dead in them.  I attempted unsuccessfully to try-on some recently, but was rendered unconscious by their oppressive drabness.

     

    A lot of shoes come in a choice of bright colours or abject boredom.  Choice is good.  Each to their own, OK?

     

    I see what you did there.

     

    Easy there.  I made fun of the shoes, not you. Smile

      I said something similar on here recently but I was informed by those in the industry that clown shoes are what everybody wants to buy now....

       

      I have a habit of wearing worn out running shoes as everyday knockaround shoes once they are retired.  Some functions of my company are allowed to dress below business casual.  I saw one of these folks walking the hall today in jeans, a decent button-down shirt.....and a pair of these clown shoes.

       

      It looked as stupid as I imagined it would.  Smile

       

      You know, that's a good point.  I actually kind of like the loud colors on my running gear, but I like to wear the retirees as casual shoes, too.  None of my more "colorful" shoes have gotten to that point yet; I'm not sure what the plan will be when that happens.

       

      Then again, looking around at trends in "casual" kicks, seems like it's going toward brighter colors...
