I'd go for these, they'll make you go much faster:

CLICK!

Sorry couldn't resist. :oops:

On a serious note, I used to use Vans :)

I have a set of shimano MP90 that I use on flatties.
I bought them because they were cheap.
They came with changable inserts to stiffen the insole so may be better for your balls!! :D
They also protect you toes pretty well and on me are pretty comfy. Have heard that the faulse leather splits, but time will tell. mine seem OK.

I've got a ridiculous amount of trainery things, from hiking boots to squash shoes, most of them pretty expensive, but the best things I've found for riding my bike with BIG flatties .... a cheap pair of trainers (£10 from Tescos!!) with pretty solid soles, very good grip, and comfy for walking around in too!! :D

But I'm not sure they'd suit you :? ... they're a bit girly ... :oops: very Dr Who-esqe though!! Lol!! 8)
