If the black areas were red, I would buy a pair.

Saw a study not long ago showing that the more money you spend on sports footwear the more likely you are to suffer a foot or leg injury in the course of doing your sport. I believe this. I recently gave up wearing fancy, expensive running shoes and started wearing soft little pool shoes, and not only do my feet feel great, but I can run further with less weight and bulk on my feet, and I’ve had no injuries. No rubs, blisters, or time-consuming trips to have my shoes altered either.

Brilliant. How many times have we all lost a shoe tongue and had to throw away an otherwise perfectly good sneaker? Too many times, I’ll wager. No?

I’ve always been a loyal Adidas man, but those are truly hideous. I prefer the classic models like Sambas and Stan Smiths.

I can't recall details, but of course the study design is important in interpreting results. My recollection is that they did, and the principal investigator on the study said they were theorizing that a lot of high-end running shoes have so much cushioning that they boost the runner or walker 2-3 inches off the ground, which creates a platform you can fall off of if you place your foot a bit wrong or hit an uneven patch on the ground. This is what kept happening to me, and I had some severely strained ankle ligaments.

I read also that there was a move to return to the light slippers Roger Bannister had used, and some companies were making little soft running shoes with very little padding. They seemed like a costly gamble, so I spent $14 on a pair of pool shoes at Costco and have been running happily injury-free for the past several months.

I’ve always marvelled at seemingly intelligent women who find a jerk to “fix”, rather than just finding a guy who’s already not broken...

Fortunately, I don’t have to deal with that any more...
