I don’t know about you, but there are only 8 days left until summer and I am kickin’ my butt into gear. Because let’s be honest, after that terrible winter, none of us are bikini ready (unless you’re one of those skinny chick bloggers that pretends to eat.) While many of us can afford the luxury of a fancy gym or SoulCycle classes, alot of us are less fortunate and are forced to workout the old fashioned way: runnin’ outside.
And don’t get me wrong, runs in the park and around my neighborhood are great, but it is HOT outside and I sweat like no other. I can handle sweat, and I can even tame my hair, but there’s one thing that really gets me down while im working out and that’s uncomfortable sweaty shoes. I hate feet in general, but mix them with sweat. Forget it. Game over. Workout complete. Everytime I lace up for a run, my sneakers make me so sad, because I know what’s about to happen. They’re plain black and white and they’re sooo basic. They also have no ventilation so by the end of my run, I feel like my feet are cooking. So, I did what every good shopoholic does. I went on a search for a new pair.
During my search, I found that bright colorful sneakers are a must-have in the workout world. Solid colored black and white sneakers are soooo out. The only thing any of us should be wearing to the gym are neon kicks, which are obvi perfect for the upcoming season. My next task was to find a pair that’s breathable so that my feet don’t suffocate in the summer heat, and I definitely found what I was looking for. If you’re looking for new summer appropriate sneaks, I suggest you check out our slideshow. Because when you look good, you feel good. And when you feel good, you’re more motivated to workout. Aka. These fun breatheable sneakers are the motivation you’ve been looking for all year long.
