I watched the video, I think the whole thing is really far out. I wish the video talked about a few of the other nurses featured too, but overall wicked cool.

I have a pair of Airwalks that I've worn for four years now...there is no tread left on them at all. If she'd be willing to spring the $14 for a new pair for me, she can have my old ones!
