Default switched to running shoes

I used to just wear basketball shoes all the time whenever I was going out and didn't need to dress up. During the summer it would be a t-shirt, shorts and basketball shoes, winter t-shit, jeans and basketball shoes. But now I've started to really like running shoes. They're so much more comfortable and I really like some of the styles offered by Nike and Skechers. I used to love Nike basketball shoes. But now most of them are so ugly. Anyways, now when I go out I just throw on my pair of Nike running shoes or even my pair of Converse All-Stars.

yea same as you.

Running is more mainstream and more likable. basketball shoes are too black for non basketball ppl.

Just got these the other day from Kohls. Nice and comfortable for running/walking and every day use. I like the colors and they're nowhere near as ugly as some of the Nike basketball shoes I was looking at.

I've had these for about a year. These are my shoes I just use for running. Either outside or inside on the treadmill. They're great. I can't believe I used to run in basketball shoes. Those were so uncomfortable to run long distances in.

I think most running and basketball shoes are both hideous.

The shoes you posted aren't too bad, but I wouldn't wear them for casual everyday situations. Maybe with some shorts and a plain tee, but that's about it.

Both running and basketball shoes are better suited for their respective activities, imo.

Yeap. I bought a pair of nike frees and pretty much worn them every chance I get. Sometimes I feel like taking walks just so that I can wear them.

They go great with jeans and shorts too.

Pair of running shoes I owned back in the day. Air Tuned Max.

I don't think I ever thought they looked good. I just got them because they were unique.

SUPER comfortable though. Most comfortable shoe I've ever had. Even more than Free's.
