The search has begun: my friend S likes New Balance so yesterday I tried on a bunch of them – all of which had too much room in the toe area. Nix that.
My friend C recommended Brooks – I like these http://www.brooksrunning.com/prod.php?p=42237
They are orange and they are semi bio-degradable. Is this a wise choice, or am I falling prey to eco-marketing? If I want to be environmentally responsible, maybe I should find the company that takes its shoes back and recycles them into more shoes, or plastic bottles or sweaters or something.
Perhaps I should try the shoes on first, and the deliberate with my conscience.
