Check these out... Yikes

Okay, my running shoes were shot and I desperately needed a new pair. I have been wearing the Asics Gel Nimbus for the last bazillion pairs and decided to have my foot and shoe looked at to make sure it was still my best bet. This ended up being the case again. Now, I have had two pairs of almost all of the following dark blue, light blue, alien green, orange, and gray and purple. All I am asking for is the shoe to come in red. Just one time. If this show ever comes in red I will purchase at least three pairs of them. The shoe salesman said he can't remember that this shoe (ladies version) has ever come in red. So what color did I end up with?

Root beer and Latte. The ugliest shoes on the planet.

Well, I guess no one can say that I am buying shoes just because they are pretty.

I just tried out my new Gel Nimbus shoes for the first time today. A little stiff for the first run, but I think that's cause my other shoes were so worn.

I have the bright blue ones... I would LOVE for them to come in red. My favorite color :-)

I had a brief love affair with the Nimbus Gel until they changed it a bit at the end of 2006 :-(

Anyway, while I know we don't buy shoes because of color, you might look into the men's shoe - they probably come in red (because apparently red is a boy color to the sneaker world). One of the first shoe fittings I had, I ended up in a men's red addidas because they didn't have the female model in my size. And to quote the sales woman "These are better anyway - I hate how they make women's shoes in such girly colors." I didn't have the heart to tell her I was drooling over the gray and baby blue women's style (since blue is my favorite color).

Of course that only works if you don't have dainty feet that are too small for men's shoes :-)

I think running shoes are suppose to be ugly! I had a pair of New Balances that I loved and they were lime green. I been pretty happy with Gel 1100's the last 4 years and they are red and blue. I would prefer them to be uglier.

Hi, my name is blink, and I am an Aisicsaholic. I just bought three pairs of Asics 2120's because they finally came in a color I like.

Red. :)

I've been waiting a long time for Aisics to come out with a decent looking shoe. I feel your pain. On that note, I may have to go get a few more pairs.

Btw Peak Performance on Cass had a bunch of last years model Asics on sale. $65. Might have a better color.

Those shoes look good enough to drink but that's about it. I'm with you on the brighter color preferances. Red would be better.
Geez, listen to me, I'm a middle aged guy talking about shoes. Stop me, please.

BTW, I think Oscar should be able to compete wherever the heck he wants to.
