    So are Asics. But they don't come in a variety of vomit colors.

    For as long as they've lived and the crap they've been through, let them wear whatever damn pair of shoes they want.

    I typed that before seeing tom's posts, but it could apply to you as well.

    I agree that old people should be allowed to wear whatever they want.



    Except Crocs.

    Somehow, in some way, I just knew that that had to be a People of Walmart picture.

    A lot of them wear those shoes because they are diabetics and those shoes protect their toes from having to be cut off. My grandmother has a few pairs that she had to get so she wouldn't stub her toes and have them sliced off.

    I've seen some pretty terrible looking men's ASICS too.

    No kidding. I wanted to buy some Asics for myself but I couldn't get over the hideous colors. They are super comfy though.

    Oh, I've been wearing the Nimbus series as my running and/or casual shoes for nearly ten years now, starting with the Nimbus IV. They're ASICS most heavily padded shoe, and aptly named because they do feel like you're walking on clouds. The colors are a problem, especially since I tend to have bad luck with them and find only the florescent varieties in stores. I always buy the ones that are blue though, because those tend to look the most normal. Find a shoe you like in a store, and then order online to get a non-insane color. Will probably be cheaper too.

    The ones I use right now: [image=http://www.gadgetsparacorrer.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/asics_gel_nimbus_12.jpg]

    The XIIs also come in like... Halloween colors, as well as bright green and black. wtf.

    Too late :p

    And anyway, when I tried them, the Asics felt a little too heavy (at least the models they had at the store), so after trying like a dozen different shoes I decided on some Nike Dual Fusion in gray/green.
