As for the trainers issue - why do people 'have to' wear trainers?  If you don't like uncomfortable shoes, get yourself a comfortable pair, or some boots (that can be just as comfortable as trainers and are probably better for your feet).

I was at dtd on Friday and heard a few people say that they 'can't' wear proper shoes, and therefore probably will not be coming again. (I don't believe for a second that they would stay away BTW).

I am sure there are isolated instances of people with severe foot problems that mean they can't wear shoes.
But in the main it strikes me as supposed adults behaving like 6 year old kids.


As for people moaning on a public forum about a private club - I can understand Rob Yong's stance, and the frustration at seeing months of hard work undermined (although I don't think Tragic's comment falls into this category).

However, this stance will inevitably stifle debate about the positives and negatives of dtd (and even the best run businesses have negatives).
Whilst it is fine in theory that all comments / complaints are directed privately to the business, sometimes people are not very good at articulating their point or idea, until they get involved in a discussion.

When the Hospital tells you to wear trainers except for attending the odd funeral etc then you wear trainers unless somebody close to you dies - end of.

I think Jakally covered this, I think he meant can't wear shoes.

But primarily any kind of foot problems that mean you can't wear shoes, also mean that you can't wear trainers either.

Search Yahoo Diabetic foot and that should clarify why some people have foot trouble, I kinda get what your saying about if you cannot wear shoes you cannot wear trainers but it's just what is recommended.
