www.Zappos.com

Hands down the best prices, best customer service, and best selection of kicks on the internet. You will not be disappointed.

ipath.com I’ve been rocking Ipaths for a while now. Got like 4 pairs.

solepedia.org is like wikipedia for shoes, but it doesn’t sell anything. So find some kicks you really like and get them on ebay.

They’re decent…but I got hooked on being able to design my own on nike.com. I never could find a pair of Nike Free 5.0’s that didn’t look like they were painted by a 3 year old. Now I can get them in all black if I want to.

Zappos know how to do business. Best prices I have ever seen, a 1 year return policy, free next day shipping, no taxes (except for KY, NV, NY, and NC). You can’t even argue with them if you wanted to.

I just want to know when I can get the Nikes from “back to the Future 2” but I don’t really need the power laces.
I fully expect to see a pair available by 2015, the year the movie was set. Though I’ll be 41 then, adn not really the kind of guy to wear high tops. Whatever.

Well for $2,000 you can be the type of 35 year old to wear them.

^^ Ha! Thanks for that! I should’ve known the internet would provide!

There was even a comment by a guy who mentions how wacky it is for a 35 year-old to want these shoes.

First time I ordered from Zappos, I ordered some dress shoes at 8:30 p.m. CST on a Wednesday night in Lincoln, Nebraska. They were on my doorstep at 11:30 a.m. CST on Thursday. I don’t even know how that’s possible. I have bought all my shoes from them since. Love that company.

Your local foot specialist.

Really.

If you’re trucking about in 1) Nike’s and 2) Nike’s that are incredibly beat, perhaps you need a professional opinion and fitting to really put your feet into a pair of shoes that will actually work with your foot type as opposed to fight it tooth and nail (Nike’s.)

Sorry, I hate Nike’s, but I’m serious about the other suggestion. I imagine you go on SOME sort of running, so it’s really worth it to invest in your feet and, ultimately, your ankles, lower legs, knees, hips, and back.

I alternate running between Asics Nimbus 10s and Vibram Fivefingers (for shorter bursts)
