New shoes ROCK – other exercise

April 23, 2010

I got my new Nike Frees in the mail yesterday, and could barely wait to try them out this morning.  They’re pretty interesting to look at – extremely light, barely structured upper with oddly offset laces.  Whatever.  They could look like I’m wearing giant dead frogs, and I’d still use them to run.  Barefoot running […]
