I was thinking of getting some of those running bottoms with the strap across the foot. Where does the strap go? (polite answers only please!) Options seem to be under shoe - not likely cos it will wear off, inside sock and outside sock but I don't know if that could cause blisters!
Advice will be gratefully received.
Thanks

The cool way to wear them is to not use the strap at all and just have it hanging loose. The younger hip runners think it is seriously uncool to use the strap. But if you do want to use it, then you put it over your sock and inside the shoe :p

i think officially they are meant to go over socks into shoe, but personally i think it would really bug the hell out of me...
id prob end up for putting the strap at the back of my foot... it would be very uncool at the front.

have you checked out the lycra ones they seam to stay put with out the strappy thing

I think I've thought this question but never asked it :p - I don't wear my tracksters unless it's likely I'll lose limbs through the cold!

I wear mine over my sock but in my shoe and so do all the other runners I know that where - we are too old to worry about looking cool

I wear mine over socks in shoes, not worried about looking cool to busy running faster than all the cool looking runners!

I bought a pair of those running tight thingies. I wore them once, in my bedroom, realised I looked utterly preposterous and have never put them on again. They looked way too tight. I just couldn't pull them off (not literally).

I think my problem would be that I couldn't pull them ON. Thought of neighbours seeing me ......... the shame for my children............ paying for therapy for anyone who passes...
