neat but considering pokemon go does a good job of tracking that stuff direct from the phone why get special shoes?

Oh good, a fragile and fire prone Li-Po battery in a platform that literally gets pounded on the pavement thousands of times a day. What could possibly go wrong?

I see it lots, mostly in an arm holder. The phone is an all in one device for a lot of users.

I do. And pretty much every person I see out running. I use it for Zombies run and music.

I don’t use it for phone calls though.

Uh, me. Am I doing a bad thing? It’s so I can listen to music.

I guess not. It just seems to detract from the pleasure to me.

It just won’t be the same without those socks, though. Or her shoulder pads. :disappointed:
