This site is also supported by Xero shoes because their shoes have relieved the arch pain I have had since leukemia. I wear the Mesa Trail model; it is the only model I've tried. Their shoes sell themselves.

Clement of Alexandria, c. A.D. 190

But the hiccuping of those who are loaded with wine, the snortings of those who are stuffed with food, the snoring rolled in the bed clothes, the rumblings of pained stomachs, cover over the clear-seeing eye of the soul by filling the mind with ten thousand fantasies. the cause is too much food, which drags the rational part of man down to a condition of stupidity. (The Instructor II:9)

Love of dainties and love of wine, though great vices, are not of such magnitude as fondness for finery. A full table and repeated cups are enough to satisfy greed. But to those who are fond of gold, purple, and jewels, neither the gold that is above the earth and below it is sufficient, nor the Tyrian Sea, nor the freight that comes from India and Ethiopia, nor yet Pactolus flowing with gold. Not even were a man to become a Midas would he be satisfied, but would be still poor, craving other wealth. Such people are ready to die with their gold. (The Instructor III:2)

This is an ad written by me, Paul Pavao: I get a commission if you buy Xero shoes, which does not increase your cost. I am promoting them because Xero shoes have relieved foot pain I have had since leukemia. I wear the Mesa Trail shoes, and suspect I will be doing so for the rest of my life. My wife and oldest son wear Xero shoes as well. Read about them at the link.

I do not get a commission for this ad.
