    I just don't see how people can run with those in their heel and not feel it. Despite having callouses that seem to be an inch thick, my feet get tender easy. I almost always wear sandles, and they are Timberlands that are like 8 years old. No joke. About the only time I don't wear them is when there is snow on the ground. I haven't bought a new pair of shoes since I worked at Finshline. I used to have a pair of Nike 360's I LOVED until the bottom bubble got a hole in it. They have a life time warranty on the bottom, BUT then someone stole all my shoes. I had like $1,000 in shoes that I only wore with certain outfits...one pair was a nice pair of the old really cool white and silver Tailwinds. LOVED those shoes.

    I don't use the Nike shoes made for it. Nikes are toooo narrow for me. I have vury wide feet. I use Skechers Go Run and Go Run Bionics. I have this little thingamajig that holds the sensor at the laces area.

    This isn't my shoe, but that's the little holder dealie.

    It tracks how much money a person has to waste.

    It does all the same things you've mentioned - heart rate and + calories burned. It's a very similar idea as a garmin bike computer, but it's for running. I use mine with my iPhone, which also serves as my music while I run, but the sensor also works with iPod Touch and iPod Nano. Since the sensor isn't something you have to hold or pocket and I would have my music with me anyway, it's one less then to have to hold when running or walking.
