    Is it wrong to wear Nike running shoes for walking?

    I want something comfortable, and was wondering would I regret getting running shoes when I will primarily be walking.

    Just to clarify, would the running shoes be less comfortable when walking?

    you're walking, the type of shoe you're wearing doesn't matter unless your 400 years old or are walking 15 miles in a day. don't let "fitness experts" tell you differently.

    If they're comfy for running they're comfy for walking.

    Yes it is. It is also wrong to use espresso-ground coffee beans in a french press, and/or vise versa.

    Yes. Just like it is wrong to wear skate shoes if you're not skating.

    You mean these things?

    How the Hell would he get his feet in them, assuming he's not other-worldly, with 3 really skinny feet.

    Yes, very wrong. It's illegal. The fashion police will arrest you and sentence you to death by snu snu.

    I think it's funny that a person who wears DC shoes is wondering if wearing Nike's would be wrong.

    I'm surprised no one has suggested that you get those buttock toning shoes yet. :)

    no, they'll be quite comfortable.......but you can buy comfortable walking shoes for less than running shoes

    Dont do it, you can't even stand on them cause they are made for running only.

    You forgot to tell him that if he wants tennis shoes instead, he has to carry a racket and a can of balls around at all times. And grunt really loud at regular intervals.

    His grunting hasn't helped him so far.

    He's still full of it.

    Surely, you jest.;) Every time I think waloshin has hit rock bottom, he starts digging some more. I'll be waiting for when he once again lowers the bar (probably next week:D).
