    Advice on soft grey shoes?

    I seem to have most everything that I need for acceptance into this fourm except for that last important item. Yes, the soft grey shoes to wear on Sunday after my ride.

    Now I don't mean to be fussy, but I want soft grey shoes that would work for everything, not just for a high performance Sunday, but a lazy Sunday, a rainy Sunday, just about any Sunday. I should be able to recover from a ride on my MTB or my road bike in these shoes. I would like for these shoes to make me feel..........well..........chirpy.

    Maddmaxx looking for comfy shoes? That's just not right. If you want comfy shoes you're going to have to change your screen name.

    A REAL Maddmax would just supreglue the cleats to his bare feet.

    Bowling shoes and classic cycling knickers will keep you comfy and make you the talk of the town.

    Most comfortable after-ride shoes I know of.
    Crocs

    I believe my avatar is your answer. They work for a high performance Sunday, a lazy Sunday, a rainy Sunday, and just about any Sunday. When I wear mine I feel, well, chirpy. You can get 'em in grey, black, white, red, or green.

    Converse All Stars. That's the ticket!

    All I want to know is how do I get rid of the soft grey feet after a wet and cold ride.

    About Those Crocs as posted by Bluesdawg. I just about live in mine. Just wish they did a steel toecapped version for work.

    +1 to Crocs
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    Just soft grey shoes suitable for a 50+ to wear on Sunday. Perhaps to wear when I am recovering from a ride. I can listen to music then... almost anything...well anything but Bethoven.

    Try Beethoven instead. Sunday afternoon after a ride- That is boot time at this time of year. Either washing down the bikes or digging the veggie patch.

    Those Hush Puppies look so comfortable that my feet feel better just from having looked at DG's pic.

    Is that your new helmet Tom. I'll bet its great going downwind.

    Its supposed to be cooling holes in the helmet, wings on the shoes.

    Of course if your trying to destroy the Earth then its appropriate.
