Looking for the perfect shoes

What I look for in clothes and shoes

I am not interested in standing out, looking flashy, etc. I dont want to buy lots of clothes, I have two pairs of clothes, each night I wash the dirty pair. Its just simpler. Because of this, I just want clothes that

Current Status

  1. Socks </br> https://www.stance.com/stance-performance-tab-socks/TABSOCKSPERFLIGHTRUNLIGHTBLACK.html seem to be mostly nylon. They claim lifetime guarantee. They already sent me 1 free pair when one developed a hole. So far have had the same 4 socks (2 pairs) for 3 years, no complaints. </br>
  2. Shorts</br> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B092SLNCJC/ nylon of course. They went to thin on the thread and the pockets have holes. Not happy. Needs thicker threads and less thread count. Needs nylon pockets. Needs to get rid of the whole cargo pocket things. </br>
  3. Long Pants</br> http://www.mcmenterprise.net/ and https://www.facebook.com/McmEnterprise/ I could not find good long pants. All the nylon ones looked tactical. So I got some 100% nylon, abrasive resistance, breathable with no coating shipped. And then I went to MCM in Brooklyn. They made me pants that have been going great for 3 years. They kind of look like suit pants. I wear them running, office, etc. Fantastic. </br>
  4. Underwear</br> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07XMDPQ1M/ 100% Nylon. Perfect. Its a knit type material. Fantastic. </br>
  5. TShirt</br> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08JHP6MVM/ the material is great. Been wearing for 2 years. All the pockets is the bad part, why so many pockets. Need the same shirt without the pockets. </br>
  6. Shoes</br>

Which brings us to shoes.

Today, Discussing Shoes

I read the book Born to Run ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Born_to_Run_(McDougall_book)) so of course I wanted minimalist shoes. I ran the NYC marathon in running sandals.

Some of the great things about them


So then I went on WeChat (with Alyssa’s help) and was able to find Mr. Liu https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EslrDVTja48 a video about them. We decided to try to import some of the original classic Feiyues.
