I’ve never been a fan of sneakers. Oh, sure, when I’m working out, then I love them. But if I’m not jogging, at the gym, or at least walking to a yoga class, I’ve never really been been on board with sneakers as day-to-day fashion.
Of course, I realize fashion sneakers have made some serious advances in recent years. And I admit that a couple pairs of old school sneakers (New Balance in purple and orange and Nike in lime green and blue) made their way into my workday wardrobe a couple years back when I injured an ankle and had to spend months in a walking boot and then on crutches. I wore them with my little lawyer outfits and hobbled around the office, much to the consternation, I’m sure, of at least one partner. Since the cast came off, though, they’ve been relegated mostly to weekend errand runs and jaunts to the yoga studio.
That might all have to change now that I’ve discovered these Nike Free Running Spotted Sneakers. Not only do they come in coral and turquoise….they have polka dots!! Polka dots, people!! They’re just too much fun to save for a run or a trip to the grocery store (although they might help me pick up the pace doing either). So, who knows, maybe an old fashion dog really can change her spots…er…or something like that.
