Holy fuck do my feet ever heart. Okay, so it's only parts of my feet. Right foot, part above my heel feels like it's being rubbed raw. Only the right foot, though. Then, it's various parts of my toes.

What gives, MJS?

If it's true love, let them go. If they come back to you then it was meant to be.

They're not dogs, you moron. They are sentient beings.

I don't like you talking about women or shoes like that. Besides, women are the ones that will walk all over you (they have a positive relationship with their footwear, a true polyamorous relationship if I ever saw one).

Chuck Taylor's flat insole is sort of cool. A lot of people like them for lifting and some claim that they're great for running for thin feet because they allow the arch to work and the feet to properly pronate - sort of like a poor ma's Vibram 5-fingers. A lot of people don't like the flat insole. A similar shoe at a similar price with a better insole would be http://www.pfflyers.com/ which I've posted all over the place in the past.

I think flat leather insoles with some sort of malleable cushioning or corking are best. They break into the shape of your foot. All my expensive designer sneakers feature this.

Rub the bits of the shoes that are rubbing with some soap, just cake some on. Maybe wear 1000 mile socks or double layer running socks till they are worn in, rub some Vaseline or Boby Glide on the bits of raw skin before you wear them as well.

CTs don't break in bro.

Everything breaks or wears in, even cotton, just takes longer, my only pair of them just now took months - or maybe my skin got tougher, they used to rub just on the first joint of my toes..

Like most nostalgic items, the memory far exceeds the reality.
They weren't that good in the 70's, there just wasn't anything that much better.

When I was a kid in Poland, they were the go-to shoes for school kids because they were the cheapest. I was pretty baffled that they were more expensive here than a sack of potatoes. I bought them mainly to see if I could run in them as easily as I can barefoot. No dice. If it weren't for the parts that are rubbing me raw, they'd be pretty comfortable, though.

I quit wearing Chucks after living in SF and having to walking the hills in them.

Chuck Taylors aren't even made in the first world anymore. Indonesia ftw?

You won't find sneakers made in the first world without paying ~$150 minimum.

I've got a pair of Chucks in subdued, tactical flat black. They're pretty good for doing squats/deadlifts, but you look like a git.

What do people normally squat/DL in?

Phrost

They actually make shoes for it, but you can use wrestling shoes for the purpose. Vibrams are good too; anything with a flat sole, and definitely not some overcushioned bullshit like Nike Shox. When you're doing big weight you don't want any squishy bullshit to deal with. Some people even squat barefoot.

Then why do you look like a git in CTs?

Because they look stupid on people wearing shorts.

These are the ones I have:

Hi-tops are for losers. No wonder you feel like a jackass wearing those shoes.

Meh, they were an impulse buy. I've worn them 4 times in 2 years.

Actually.....
There were actually bus lines (24 Divisadero) that I couldn't ride without being bothered.
When the missus was the GF, she worked in Pacific Heights and I would have to take that line from Noe Valley to Pacific Heights. I had to wear a hat and hoodie, sunglassed, have one headphones and be reading a book with my head down so as to not garner any attention.

So LULX
