Wells Lamont? If those aren't some variation on the little black cotton ones that get holes really quick, I'd say switch that. Plus the Nike Shox vs. minimalist really isn't a distinction between yuppie and blue collar. Yes shox are expensive, but who runs in those that's fast anyways? Zoom Elites are minimalist and they also aren't that cheap. Worth it to me anyways. The H Streets really aren't very cheap for how much is built into them.

Interesting though, not trying to knock you. Let's hear more.

Girls' coach at my old HS was a weekend warrior on the roads: 2:4x marathon type.

His cold-weather attire: your old white tube socks with holes for the thumbs already provided by your toes. Worn on forearms.
