It might be the middle of Spring, but a recent Nike Hyperfeel Training Shoes ($175).
I have to admit, when I first saw the Hyperfeels, I wasn't immediately attracted — it seemed more like a thick sock than shoe. But once I put them on, the shoes made sense. Extremely light and flexible, Hyperfeels almost mold to my feet, which helps me feel more connected to the ground and move at a faster (and freer) pace. Since receiving them earlier this month — with the exception of running and Spin — I've worn them for every single workout I've gone to (and don't see that stopping anytime soon).
