Running shoes

Why are Running shoes always so ugly?
I just don't get it...
In my whole life I never saw one pair of Running shoes that I thought looked cool or beautiful.
Is it so difficult to design a simple back or white shoe without the fluo or the "star trek" theme.
OK, I know running shoes have to be good for running and have to be comfortable but why do they always have to look so... hmmm... Spider man-ish???
Look at my shoes?
I feel ashamed if I need to get something in a store while I'm still wearing my running shoes.
So nike, Asics, Puma or Adidas design ceesie some nice simple and cool new Running shoes please...

  1. I don't know about you but new Nike shoes have some really nice design like Nike Free Run or Nike LunarElite. Check those out ;)

  2. My question exactly. I don't understand how people can wear them on a daily basis with jeans etc. It's just wrong xD

  3. Lol Star Trek! But that is true, the style of running shoes have never changed (for the better).

  4. I don't even own a pair of sneakers or running shoes for this exact reason. All through high school I wore moccasins to physical education class because I hated running shoes, and the teachers would ask me to change them. ~Nooope, not going to happen haha.

  5. Dear Cesar,
    I like you shoes. They look like dragon's claws. New Balance retro running is more discreet although they don't have as much support so you have to keep buying new ones. I don't really know if your generation likes the brand:

  6. try NikeiD (http://nikeid.nike.com/), you pick the colours so that's as good as a running shoe will ever get... plus, they accidentally sent mine twice when i bought a pair, surely something i don't mind.

  7. Have you ever heard of the book Born to Run? It talks about the evils of the running shoes industry. The more complex the shoe, the worse it actually is for you. Running barefoot's the way to go. Plus your own feet will never go out of style!

  8. Babyyyyyy, why do you buy ugly running shoes????? You need some help to choose the right one? First of all you must throw your running shoes as soon as possible.
