Aren't PF Flyers the ones that make you "run faster, jump higher?" I haven't seen those for about 40 years.

Im sure those would feel great after 50 miles. They could make your ankles nice and raw, better use some band-aids.

Wow - P.F. Flyers!! That brings me back -- I had those when I was a tot in the 60's. I had no idea they were still around. I think I begged my parents for them because they came with a secret whistle/decoder ring.
