Street or trail?
I wear my cheap MacGregor turfs a lot, and for all forms of unicycling. I try to
keep them for the unicycling though, because they’re hard to find.

ATTENION K-MART SHOPPERS - I don’t think you can do much scientific shopping in
the K-mart shoe department. I think they sell out of what they have, and replace
it when more comes in. In between, you get some other type of shoe in that
category. I have learned that the store where I used to shop (Rocklin, CA)
doesn’t carry the turf shoes, but another Sacramento area store does. The
Rocklin store was kind enough to order me those shoes and have them brought over
there. If you’re lucky, your store may be able (and willing) to do the same
So, as the duly self-appointed expert on K-mart MacGregor turf shoes for
unicyclists, The shoe you’re looking for is stock #17419, White Astroturf.
Hopefully that’s the info. you need.
Don’t wash them too many times with bleach, because they’ll fall apart
eventually. Am I expecting too much from my $20 shoes?

I’m a snob. I don’t shop at Wal Mart, only K mart
