Have you ever run with your sneakers on while it starts raining heavily? I have. Trust me when I say that it is unpleasant when your shoes begin squishing in the rain.

Though it might be entirely possible that I am a bit biased. Find out more about these shoes by chatting with me or any of the other interested parties.
