Dear Nike,

I have a pair of Nike running shoes. I would give you the model of shoe, but I don’t see that on them anywhere. I bought them a year or two back. I usually buy cheap assed shoes from Payless Shoes, because they are cheap and comfortable, but I was convinced I’d get into the spirit of running with the whole Nike+ thing and would be out hitting the track everyday! I am happy to report I’ve gone running at least twice since I got these shoes and if I lace them up real tight I seem to be able to run pretty fast, but I didn’t get into the habit like I wanted to.

Anyway, the surprising part is how long them have lasted. My Payless Shoes shoes would have been falling apart by now, but I am expecting to get another 3 or 4 years out of these things.

I should get around to taking the little sensor out of the shoe though. Putting that in there was pretty dumb of me. I should have known I wouldn’t get around to doing any actual running.

Yawn, boilerplate. I tried to go to to get shoes, but the customization page won’t load for me. At least they wrote back. So few companies even do this. I’m not quite sure what the point is when you are as boring as this, but oh well. It’s not like every one of my letters is a winner.
