    I really dont have any good shoes. I wear a pair of vans as my daily shoes.

    I am thinking about maybe picking up a pair of new balances or something. I have really wide feet and it makes it hard to get shoes that fit well. I should really go someplace and get fitted

    Nike Free 5.0 V4's since I run before / after any workout, If I was just doing lifting though, I'd probably just wear my super thin pumas.
