The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Shoes

    As a great man once said. You can tell a lot about a person by their shoes.


    What kicks are you sporting?

    I just bought a pair of these after wearing nothing but flip-flops for the past 2 1/2 years

    Very nice MIke. I like my shoes ugly. Well not really ugly just non conventional. The ones I linked the art is from an Old Japanese graphitti artist from the 80's punk scene. They are Draven Tokyo Hiro's. My only pair of boots are some Doc Martens steel toe 16" ladder laced.

    I have two pairs of these. One pair has a black stripe sole, those are for lifting and stuff. My nice pair has a baby blue stripe and sole. I actually like these green ones so I'll probably get these as my next pair of shoes. I also plan on getting a nice pair of boat shoes for this summer.

    Twilo-

    I need some shoe/boot advice:

    I have wide feet and wear a 12.5-13, any recommendation on decent looking dress boots in black and above ankle height?

    In the gym - Chucks

    On the street - Some old ass airwalks, I don't know the specific model

    At a show - Cat Steeltoe Workboots

    At work - Some cheap things that look nice.

    I used to wear the same $10 pair of walmart shoes all the time (it was always a little different style but they were always $10). A year or so ago my mom finally got disgusted enough to buy me a pair of nike air's. Apparently I have no fashion sense =/ but im sure a part of that comes with being cheap.

    I own a ****load of shoes, although I can't quite compare to Twilo. Mostly sneeks, a couple pairs of dress shoes, a couple pairs of boots and a few flip flops.

    I feel like such a woman when I look at my collection of footwear.
