I accidentally my ruined the bf's sneakers. (Long story.) I kept the shoes, thinking I could get an identical pair, but my schedule's been crazy and between the incident and today it looks like he threw the old pair out. So now I can't find an exact replacement.

All I can remember is that they were gray (or beige?) New Balance sneakers with navy trim. He used them to workout and run, but most of his workout consists of weight lifting and jumping jacks.

I checked a few out at one of the big box stores and all of the NB look awful--plus there was no one to tell me whether they'd be good for running and weight lifting.

Any advice? Anything I should definitely stay way from?

Thanks,
Your Buddy's Lousy Girlfriend

They're work out shoes. He never wears them out of the garage. What do YOU work out in?

You should wear shoes with a flat arch and sole when weight lifting. Thus you be trolling

+1 Chucks or Stan Smiths work well for me. They look ok and they're cheap.

If you don't care for the opinion of the people you came to ask, then get out. Did you expect me to say something like, "those are just crappy enough to work out in." ?

I asked what you work out in to find out what you work out in. Not to be a jerk.

Thanks for those with recs, I'll check them out.
