It has turned out that a certain well known shoe manufacturer will not work with me on a certain pair of training shoes that have shox in them. The sole on one them cracked clean in half! Oh well, says the manager of ****town, these were made in '04 so the policy is that unless they are only less than 1 yr we won't give any credit on them. I've got others in my closet that I've had for years and they haven't broken down?! 2 yrs in nothing in the life a quality shoe IMO anyway. Guess I'll be lookin' for a different brand to wear from here on out....no sense in throwing good $$ after bad. So, who's got strong favorable opionions on the shoes you're currently wearing to work out in?

I just got these yesterday at Sports Authority:

The Puma Speed Cats. They were on sale for $59, from $79. They are low to the ground with a wide enough heel for me and very comfortable. I don't think I will use them for longer running based workouts but for a series of 400m they should be fine. I wore them tonight for "Nasty Girls" and have no complaints.

Frank I purchased a pair of Addidas Sambas and love them. I got them for about 40 bucks which is a steal when you buy any shoe in a 13.5. They are really comfortable to lift in. Being as I can't work out barefoot they work great, I could tell the difference between them and my "running" shoes. Very stable.

I got a pair of sambas for my all around CF days, a pair of asics gels for running days or cf workouts involving running, and I use my timberland boots for straight on lifting. oddly enough these are all the shoes(and the only shoes) i also use for my everyday wear.
