    Tired of looking like a Granny when I work out

    Time for a superficial question!

    Before Primal I only did yoga, which requires no sporting footwear. The only trainers I have are disgusting white cast-aways from my Mum.

    Is anyone into fitness and also into fashion? What sporting footwear do you use and where do you get it?
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    There's really no diplomatic way of saying this...

    Any suggestions except Vibrams please!

    The Merrell Trail Gloves are awesome barefoot shoes that look like normal shoes. Super comfortable.

    Nike have just done some Liberty print trainers, if that's your thing. I just go to my local branch of Sports Direct, try a bunch on, bounce around and buy the most comfortable.

    LMAO i hate them too. i do have an old pair i have had for years but i use them for diving in the ocean. since i already have a wet suit on and a snorkel and already look like the woman from atlantis, i can deal with it. i have a pair of vivo barefoots like this Neo Trail Ladies - Off Road - Ladies but different colours. i also had a pair of new balance minimuses which i loved but the sides where my little toe sits wore out in a week in the pair i got and the replacement pair they gave me. i went for the trail runners as i walk alot off road. i wear them to the gym as well.

    Just buy some flat bottoms, like plimsolls, I like the Adidas slvr line. Anything would look better than vibrams for sure.

    I'm a feet guy too, but no, they must preserve the smooth delicacy of the feet.

    My feet are bony and hairy too, no fashion in that.
