I've never been a tennis shoe type of girl. I take that back. Back when my life goal was to be Michael Jordan, I was a tennis shoe girl. Have we ever talked about my longing desire to be a Chicago Bulls basketball player and how all I would wear is a MJ jersey, complete with my bowl hair cut and real life cardboard cutout of him in my bedroom? And then there was the video taping of every single basketball game where I would crank up Jock Jams at the beginning of the game and pretend to be a player running out on center court during the lineup announcements.
It's okay you guys though because NOBODY would ask me if I was a boy or girl growing up. Oh wait.
Back to the matter at hand - tennis shoes. I traded out all things comfortable and upgraded to heels at the ripe age of 16 or so and for the past 15 years of my life I've neglected all things feel good on my feet. Until now baby. When I purchased these Nike Free RN running shoes from Nordstrom, I didn't know what I was in for. The best part? You can still dress like a girl while wearing them.
The even better than the best part? You get to walk on air WHILE dressing like a girl in cute casual shoes. WINNING. These are now my go-to when it comes to all things travel, all things grocery shopping and all things everything if we are going to get specific about it.
Paired with a cute little faux leather jacket [because who can afford real leather? anybody? okay right, people can, I can't. faux leather fo' life] and some of my favorite jeans [currently at a discounted price!] this look is wham bam thank you ma'm, DONE.
Be sure to check out Nordstrom for a plethora of cute and affordable tennis shoes [and try them on in the comfort of your own home, no awkward sharing of those lovely little hose socks]. With free shipping and free returns you have absolutely nothing to lose. Except like a $100 for these shoes, but don't count it as a loss but a complete and total win for your life. I'm off to go bounce around in these babies [or sit on random doorsteps, whatever].
