There are two things I like to do at the beginning of a new year:
1. Get a pedicure …and 2. buy a new pair of shoes!
There’s something about physically walking into a new year with fresh toes & fresh shoes that just makes sense to me. Is that strange? Can anyone else relate? Or am I solo on this one lol.
I got a pedicure right before NYE (Essie “Island Hopping”) & on New Years Day, I picked up a new pair of sneakers! Over the last year, I’ve been wearing & appreciating sneakers more than I ever have before. You know that I love my black Nike Thea’s… I wore them quite a bit in 2016! … but I wanted to start adding some variety to my sneaker collection!
I’m initially drawn to black shoes, but I needed to switch it up. I didn’t want too crazy of a color, I wanted something that would match with most outfits; so I picked out this white/grey pair of Nike’s at Six:02!
These shoes are the Nike Air Huarache Ultra’s and they are so darn comfortable! I have major blisters-behind-my-ankle issues & these sneakers completely eliminate that problem! The stretchy fabric around the back of the shoe serves as a soft & flexible alternative to your traditional structured sneaker – GAME.FREAKING.CHANGER!
I’m so excited to wear these, but have actually been pretty paranoid about getting them dirty! Anyone have great sneaker cleaning tips? 😉
I have a feeling my sneaker collection will continue to grow this year, and I’ve already got my eye on a few other pairs! Lots of black, white, neutrals …and a couple pinks! 🙂
