SNEAKERS: Is there a preferred sneaker brand for ROTC, the packet I received from my NROTC unit detailed that they needed to be conservative. I like Asics- but they're really brightly colored, and I've tried Brooks and they held up decently. I would like a quality shoe that can hold up for a decent bit (300 miles-ish) and I am willing to spend around $ 150 maximum. BATHING SUIT: Again, is there a preferred brand? I used to swim for a club team and we all had the "Ugly" brand suits (that are ALSO brightly colored). The guidelines are the same as the shoes- conservative (I'm a girl) and a black/navy color. Would it be a good investment to choose a Nike suit? If not what brand would hold up well against all of the swimming I could potentially be doing? TYA!
