I can’t get over how ugly my new running shoes are (click for larger versions):

gel nimbus 1

gel nimbus 2

So comfortable inside, why so ugly outside? Unfortunately, few of the other choices were much better. Apparently sneakers must be FUTURISTIC and have 593 different elements in order to prove they were DESIGNED.

So I went ahead and bought them anyway. Function over form + I didn’t want to spend all day shopping for shoes that I’m just going to use when I run. Too bad. I’d prefer the minimalist look of a pair of Stan Smiths over this overproduced crap any day.

Hmm…I do want to run away from them every time I look down. So maybe it’s a motivational technique.
