If the Shoe Fits

One thing that always puts me in a great mood is finding new workout wear that not only fits well, but also allows me to express my personality. For the past year I’ve been OBSESSED with athletic shoes. I’ve collected enough footwear in different colors, styles, and designs to fill a small closet. I justify my extra spending by reminding myself that we shouldn’t just have one pair of athletic shoes---we need to have a variety of shoes to support a variety of workouts. For instance, I don’t wear my running shoes when I’m weight training, and I don’t wear my training shoes when I’m out running errands. In fact, not only do I have different shoes for running, lifting, and cycling, but I also have pairs designed specifically for recovery, and leisurely strolling around town.

I’m really excited about two of my recent purchases, the Nike Air Max 270, and the OOFOS Recovery Sport Sandal. They perform well, and look and feel great!

NIKE AIR MAX 270

What first caught my attention about this shoe was the variety of color combinations and the unique style---this shoe has the largest AIR bubble heel that NIKE has ever made. The AIR bubble provides extreme comfort and feels cool when you’re walking. It’s the only NIKE shoe I’ve ever owned that was comfortable enough for me to wear for long periods of time, proving that NIKE has really stepped up their game when it comes to style and comfort. Keep in mind, however, that this is a “lifestyle” shoe and should not be used for weight lifting, running, sports etc.---they’re strictly for adding a little flair to your athleisure when you’re out and about.

OOFOS RECOVERY SPORT SANDAL

After running or cycling several miles, my feet tend to become very tight and sore, and my arches can cramp. I started researching “recovery shoes,” and discovered OOFOS. I ordered a pair and I couldn’t be happier with them. I have flat feet and bunions, and these shoes help my feet recover while accommodating both of those issues. They are so comfortable and supportive that I wear them almost everywhere, and I’ve noticed a dramatic difference in the way my feet feel. Best of all, they are lightweight, easy to clean, and don’t take up a lot of space in your gym bag.
