If you google 'David Isle', this is one of the first results

Anybody have a recommendation for athletic shoes that are easy to pack in a shoulder bag or small suitcase and travel with? Just wanna do basic stuff like use the elliptical in the depressing hotel gym, and I'm sick of trying to stuff a pair of size 12 sneakers in my bag every time I leave town.

The best prospects I've seen thus far are probably Nike Flyknit Frees, either the original or the newer 3.0, but IDK if there's something out there that's explicitly designed for travel.

How about NB minimum or some five fingers.

RFT: I recently found out that several co-workers thought I was gay because I 'dress nice'. I don't mind, obviously, but I'm kind of surprised that people still make these kinds of assumptions, at least among the under-40 crowd in a major metropolitan area.

I was going for a gradient effect, and it ended up looking like a Diesel jacket from about 2003, so I redid it in the tonal blue, which worked a lot better.  So. it's gradient, solid blue on the shoulders and the underside of the collar, and then transitioning to essentially just a light stroke at the bottom so that that nubs are have a bit of blue on them, but the substrate canvas does not.  The idea was sorta to be like what the jacket would look like if I was caught in a blue paint shower, and had turned up my collar to guard against it.  

 

Aren't you in Boston?  I lived in the Boston/Cambridge area for about four years, and my take away was that it is a fairly conservative place, but with a large, transient, population because of the academic institutions there.  And conservative not as in Bible Belt, but as in Eastern Establishment.  In the end, it wasn't a place where I wanted to stay long term, but it is a nice enough place to visit.  I suppose that if you are part of an old, established Boston family, as were some of my friends from grad school who went back there, you would probably have a very different experience of the place.

The FK Frees are pretty great for travel. They also slip easily on/off in the airport.

You can get the OG version for pretty cheap online if you look around.

inb4 'post a WAYWT with it'. Sounds cool.

I'm actually in Philly, but most of the people I work with are in DC. Philly's a whole different kind of conservative in terms of social norms and attitudes, but I wouldn't say the same of DC.

Thanks, hadn't heard of NB minimum. Tried on a pair of 5 fingers and thought they were really uncomfortable.

Thanks, I'll probably give those a shot. Now the hunt begins for the double-whammy of sale price + good return policy.

FK Free Runs are great if the tight upper doesn't bother you, I believe they are still in the outlets for $40. You can literally roll them up ad stuff inside another pair of shoes too.
post #97569 of 103462
RFX if you're finding the upper tight you can also remove the insole. Makes them more minimalist as well.

I do this when I'm wearing socks.
post #97570 of 103462
Nah, the upper fits me perfectly fine, I just know that's the main complaint about the shoes.

I guess this is my cue to tell you, well, first, really sorry to hear about the dog, and second, find out if they have insurance. Homeowner's, or even a renter's policy may provide coverage that could help. Generally negligent acts are covered and your argument would be that they were negligent in the supervision of their animal. My limited understanding of dog bite cases is that it's usually a person that gets bit that then sues, but I would imagine you could fashion the claim as damage to your property and seek "cost to repair." But the point is that if the other dog's owners claim they can't pay the entire bill, they may not be aware that they have coverage through a homeowner's or renter's policy that should be explored. Anyone with more knowledge of NY dog bite laws or coverage w/ regard to "damage" to pets please chime in.

 

Thanks for your kind words, and for the info.  I've brought it up with the appropriate parties so I'll see if they have any kind of renters insurance and what we can do with that.

 

In the meantime, Alice is home from the hospital this afternoon after having her surgery yesterday, so she is resting now and on her way to recovery.  Thanks again to all!

Have a read through here: http://dogbitelaw.com/mixed-dog-bite-statute-states/new-york-dog-bite-law.html

I have a lot of experience with dog bite cases in CA, but not in NY.

Funny how an entire football culture's rise and decline can be summarized in one game.
