I just got my first new pair of athletic shoes in about 3 years...New Balance Hanzo S. They’re pretty serious running shoes and I was getting tired of doing everything my Vibram Fivefingers (you know, the “toe shoes”) for their lack of versatility and likelihood to attract weird looks. I had them for over 5 years and they were just starting to lose traction (5-10 miles/week).

Not like these are stealthy...but dat ninja!

Thanks to Joe’s New Balance Outlet...$65 shipped, normally $100-$130. Great company, I keep coming back to them.

I wonder how long before these soft little nubs start to break off...
