As actual gym shoes, for $130.

^ I have that exact pair and they're my favorite running shoe. I have Flyknit Trainers and Lunar 1s too but usually go with the Frees unless maybe I'm going for a very long run.

As actual gym shoes? Most research shows that you're no worse off with cheap trainers. And Nike Frees, despite what they claim, do not make you run more 'naturally'. But if you want to spend $130 to look good at the gym, sure, why not?

Not sure if you're doing any heavy compounds, but I always preferred flat, hard-soled shoes for weightlifting.

^ +1 Get yourself some chucks. If you wear sneakers with lots of padding its gonna fuck up your form.

These would be for various forms of cardio.

I mostly lift in CPs. peepwall[1].gif

thanks, the coat is mostly linen with some cotton, sort of an unusual combination for a winter coat.

herringbone sounds good --- I have a long medium grey coat that I wear a lot---it isn't herringbone but it has a pattern in it:

Wearing sneakers with lots of padding isn't good for anything practical in the long-term. Not lifting, not running, not anything... short-term comfort = long-term injury problems and being unable to tell when you're hurting yourself.

Yeah, padding can be dangerous but it's tough to let go. When I run, I flip upside down and use my shoulders the way most people use their feet. So, to give my shoulders some support, I bought a bunch of padded blazers. They feel great now. I can shoulder-run for miles without any aches. But my doctor warns me that the padding that felt so good for so long will ultimately give me arthritis or even a hunched back. I started experimenting with unstructured jackets instead, and though there's more pain in the short term, I feel safe knowing I'm saving my shoulders from a darker future.
