I have always been a Nike fan (nearly all my sneakers are Nike!!) but I always stuck to black (these!) until more recently. Most of my workout gear is black, so I kept things simple and stuck to a monochromatic look.
So boring, I know. That being said, in my everyday life I like a lot of color. This, you know. And that’s where fun sneakers come in. I love that you can take a classic outfit and make it more fun with a more interesting sneaker. My style has gotten a lot more casual this year – especially since moving to Brooklyn (I walk + take public transportation a LOT more and the subway is a solid ten minute walk). But also, I reaaalllly like being comfortable. So naturally, I LOVE the new Nike React sneakers in pink… they are fun, colorful, and vibrant! And besides being cute the fabric is so soft… like walking (running?) on a cloud… or wearing a pillow!
While technically a running shoe (and I tested them out; they are amazing on the treadmill as they’re so lightweight and durable – they make running fun… fun enough to break my all black workout rule!), what I love most about them is that they’re also cute for my day to day. Since I work from home I’m in workout clothes a lot (I have a silly rule where I have to wear my workout clothes until I hit the gym so if I don’t get there first thing, I’m in spandex til lunchtime); the obvious choice with sneakers. However, these look just as great with jeans, a sleek trench, and so on and so forth. They’d even be cute with casual dresses (if Spring decides to show up for real). I am constantly on the go and these are the perfect shoe for that.
