This is funny to me. I've kept buying same New Balance 990 running shoes since they came out probably or maybe 40 years ago. My daughter teases me about New Balance as old fart shoes but I know young runners who like them. Someone else tells me they are dad shoes but I know moms and young runners who swear by them them. It escaped me that 990s are evidently a style or status thing for celebrities. Yesterday with 990s in narrow out of stock I got a different series, thought they actually look more stylish, and they're really nice off pavement. My wife said they look nice. Visiting the web site after buying them I saw "may be eligible for Medicare reimbursement". The beloved 990s considered dad shows didn't have that. Don't I need the velcro straps, beige or white and sponge soles to really have nursing home shoes? More seriously, I guess like so much of the richness in life I was surprised by how many choices there are. Baby boomer showing. It's not really a complaint. There were no choices for narrow or wide feet when I was a kid. Now it's that plus so many times of shoes. I'm mostly hoping I can keep going and not need medicare reimbursing me for anything.
