Why is it that we can now shop from a huge selection of somewhat stylish, somewhat flattering workout clothing, but good looking, functional athletic shoes are impossible to find? And my main question is, WHY CAN’T WE BUY RUNNING SHOES IN PLAIN BLACK????????
We can buy yoga pants in black. We can buy t-shirts in black. We can buy running jackets in black. We can buy running socks in black. But why do running shoes have to be yellow and pink and orange? Why? Why? Why?
Honestly, I need someone to explain this to me. I stood in the store, and faced a wall of bright, ugly, mismatched colours, and thought to myself, is it so difficult to make a functional product that is also stylish? Running shoes are hideous enough as it is, so why do they need to be in ugly colours, too? And even if there are people out there that DO want yellow and green running shoes, could there not AT LEAST be a few options for people like me who would just like running shoes in black and dark grey? I don’t understand it. Can someone help me here? It just DOES NOT make sense.
