These pathetic looking things are my current running shoes. To say they are outdated is an understatement. They are currently a year old and have many miles on them. When I'm wearing them to lift weights or use the eliptical or walk - my feet don't really hurt. It's when I run that I realize the padding and shock absorbers are gone. I just need to make it one more week and then I'll head out and buy some new ones, but until then - I got these guys.
