How do I Love Thee?

Ode to my Work-Out Shoes:
Dear Work-Out Shoes,
First of all, I call you work-out shoes, because I am a tennis player and tennis shoes are made for playing tennis. You, my dears, are made for a very different purpose. You are just meant for working my little butt out, and shall never worry about touching a grungy tennis court. 

My old shoes, and when I say old I mean ooollld, had seen better days. They had no traction left, what was once white was now a light brown color. And the laces! Don't even get me started on those frayed catastrophes! It was time for them to meet their final resting place. I knew I had to bite the bullet and buy a new pair, so I would no longer be the embarrassment of the work-out community. That is where you came into play.

I do believe you are everything I am looking for in a work-out shoe. You are pink (but not overly pink gag). You are lightweight. Seriously though, I didn't know shoes could be so light. Basically you are the whole shoe package, and when I put you on I feel like I can conquer the world.

There has been countless times where I haven't wanted to go to the gym, but then I thought about getting to wear my beautiful gym shoes, and I got my booty up. How can a shoe be sheer motivation? I don't know, but you have figured it out! 

Thank you, dear shoes, for being my workout buddy. Together, we are getting in shape so I can have an awesome beach body. And the best part is, the more I work out the better I will feel about myself, which means I will want to keep working out. I love you work-out shoes, I really do. 

Love,
Kai

Those are the cutest workout shoes! I was wearing ugly ones for years before I realized that with the low level of impact of my workouts, I could choose cute ones haha. Picked up some pink and grey ones at Kohls after holidays sale for like $30. Awesome!

those sneakers are awesome. i just got red ones :) so much fun. per your question: i got told last year so many times that i looked like zoe saldana, that it occurred to me that i should be avatar for halloween. which i did. got the hair braided, painted myself, the whole deal. my best and funniest costume ever - annoying for the bf b/c 100 people asked to take pics with me. annoying for my friends who all had blue paint smeared somewhere on them by the end of the night! :)

ah so cute, any motivation to get to the gym is good in my book! They are definitely really cute. I like my workout shoes too and given that I only wear my gym shoes at the gym (i.e. if I'm running outside or hiking, I wear different shoes), they have stayed very nice for a long time, I like them!

Dancing Branflake said...

Ha! Sounds like me and my sneakers need some one on one time.

Brooke said...

This made me laugh out loud because I feel the same way about my running shoes! When I decided I was going to be dedicated and run every night, I went out and bought a pair of super comfy and good looking Nikes. Those babies paired with some super flattering workout clothes motivate me to run like no other. Beach bodies here we come!
