I've started going to the gym this year. It's been going pretty well, but I've been doing a lot of running in red Chuck Taylors. Don't get me wrong, anything John Nash likes to wear is fresh as hell, but these hightops have been killing my arches. I finally gave in today and bought some low-end running shoes with real padding. Ran 4.5 miles, and my feet feel great.
Moral of the story: don't be a vain hipster like me, kids--run in running shoes.
