Ask the MB -- Running Shoes or Clown Shoes?

New Balance 574 via Classic Sport Shoes. $59.95.
Q: As far as workout attire, specifically shoes, should fashion give way to function? I've been looking for a good pair of running shoes, but I can't find ones that will offer great comfort and performance and don't look like a gaudy monstrosity of multiple stripes, colors, and logos. Do you take the hit and buy a pair of hideous shoes for the greater good of a great body, or is there never a good excuse for wearing what essentially amounts to Nike clown shoes?

A: Good question. Whenever we need to blend fashion and function in sport shoes, we head to classicsportshoes.com. There you will find, ahem, classics like the New Balance 574s. Yes, there is a big "N" on the side -- difficult to avoid branding on running shoes -- but surely no multiple stripes or colors or any other clown shoe-related styling.

POURCAST

BETA

Sazerac

  • 3 shots rye whiskey (or to taste)
  • 1 sugar cube
  • Peychaud's Bitters
  • quarter shot of Absinthe
  • lemon twist

Soak the sugar cube with the bitters and place in the bottom of a highball glass. Mash with the back of a spoon (or muddler, which we hope has not been used to make a Mojito), add the rye whiskey and fill the glass with ice. Stir for about 30 seconds and then strain into another lowball glass that has been rinsed with Absinthe and filled about halfway with ice. Garnish with a lemon twist.
