You may know this already if you follow along on Instagram stories, but I have been looking for a new pair of athletic sneakers for an embarrassingly long amount of time. They were the one thing I could never pull the trigger on. Did I want grey? Did I want light pink? (I almost went with this blush pair!) Adidas? New Balance? Nike?
SO. MANY. CHOICES.
Also, is it just me, or do so many pairs sell out so quickly, that by the time you make a decision on something, it’s already gone? I had this issue over and over again!
Then, Shaheen actually told me to look on Zappos, because they have an amazing selection of athletic sneakers. (I also love that they have super fast, free shipping, and the best customer service ever.)
I wanted something that looked cute and could be worn with jeans, but also could be worn to work out as well. I FINALLY found a pair–they’re the Nike Tanjuns and they come in tons of different colors, too! (I especially love this tri-tone grey, navy, and pink color!) They’re basically a riff on the Roshe (first cousins, perhaps, if you will?) and they are everything you could ever want in a sneaker and more.
Anyway, they’re now the most comfortable shoes that I own. They feel like pillows on my feet! I love the light grey color because it goes with everything–and they are amazing for travel, too. (I wore them on the plane to and from Montreal a couple weeks back.) They run true to size, and also have good arch support. (This is really great for me, because I have very flat duck feet.)
Another great perk: They’re only $64!
One tip: Make sure to spray them with protectant spray to keep them that pretty light grey color. I use Scotchgard on everything (like, even my couch and my white jeans) like it’s going out of style. It never lets me down!
