Make This Stop! Wearing Running Shoes Outside Of The Gym

THE OFFENSE: Ladies, gentleman, I am so sorry to tell you this, but if I see you wearing running shoes outside of a gym or a running trail, I am judging you. Walking home from the gym, fine. Walking to your car from the gym, fine. Going to a running/hiking area, fine. But in public at a restaurant or bar or show? Nope!

WHY THIS IS SO WRONG: Honestly, I don’t think there’s enough time in the world for me to list all the reasons this is wrong, so I’ll sum up. First of all, wearing running shoes out makes you look like you’re 9 and in elementary school. Second, running shoes don’t go with any outfits not involving running shorts. Third, they are incredibly ugly. 

True story: if a guy I’m out on a date with is wearing running shoes, automatic turn off. So folks, I know you can do better than this. Be better than the running shoes!

Oh running shoes. Go away.
