|barefoot, frugal, shoes [html]|
I've also been walking more lately, mostly because I now live closer to work  and can walk there. (3.1 miles round trip) Since my shoes tend to wear out because of wear proportional to distance (as opposed to my other clothing which wears out because of wear proportional mostly to the number of washings), if I can reduce the number of miles I walk in my shoes they should last longer. So I'm going to try to build up to commuting barefoot. Which, as long as you walk properly  and avoid glass and things is supposed to be better for you.
 It also took noticing that it was cheaper to go from a monthly pass to putting money on my charlie card. And once I'm saving $2.50 every day I walk, I find I end up walking a lot.
 Toe down first instead of heel striking.
