When I was in bootcamp in late 2004, I was issued a pair of running shoes. Ugly little things, low top and a funky camo scheme. Asics maybe? In any case, we obviously ran for miles and miles every day, and I have to say I loved those things. No ankle support at all, and virtually no padding. Just thin, light, and the best damn running shoes I ever encountered. After I hit the Fleet I bought a variety of fancy shoes, with all manner of supports and gels and special padding. None of them took care of me the way those cheap bulk issue ones had. Now, due to some nerve damage in my spine I can't really run anymore but I need a new pair of general purpose shoes. I don't run but I do still try to walk a good bit and do other athletic type activities. I'm wondering if anyone else who was in or around the Marine Corps at that time remembers what type of shoes those were, and failing that does anyone have thoughts on current models that are similar to what I'm describing here? Thanks.
