Funky Footwear

MOOD STATUS: "Productive". Meeting all my recent goals.

JOGGING STATUS: Now up to 1.25 miles.

<--- Check out my new sneakers.

When I put them on, my hubby looked at me and said, "Whoa. Are your feet from the future?"

Which of course made me laugh. :)

Yeah, they're a little high-tech looking, but they feel great! And they're also the most expensive pair of sneakers I've ever owned. (And now my feet are eternally grateful)

Nothing like adding a little extra incentive to keep up my jogging progress. :)

Aren't they cool?

They are indeed super cool! I never did believe that those expensive tennis shoes could possibly be worth it before I started running. Now I understand how absolutely vital they are! Good job with your jogging!!!

They remind me of Michael Johnson's track shoes in the '96 Olympics!

The previous message was from me. My granddaughter was signed into Google last night and forgot to sign out.

Kristen Painter said...

Very spiffy. They definitely look like shoes from the future. Can you levitate in them also? ;o)

Yes and I'm a fan of purple.

So cool. And I must say, I love that you call them "sneakers."

Jennifer Shirk said...

Wendy: I'm a purple fan, too!

Natalie: You mean they're NOT sneakers? :)

I've had to stop running (three injuries in eighteen months), but I used to swear by my Brooks. Good shoes.

Cindy said...

Those are some snazzy sneaks. I still don't know how people can run, though. I'd rather walk five miles than run one.

I love them! I need a new pair of sneakers. I'll have to look for those. I really like the purple.

PatriciaW said...

Cute sneakers.

Yes, sneakers. It's a NY/NJ thing. :D

Beth said...

VERY cute. Run a mile for me, will ya?

Kate Karyus Quinn said...

Oooh cool new shoes! I have to say, I am not a big fan of exercise, but I love the clothing and accessories that go along with it;)

Diane Craver said...

Cool sneakers! And glad you like them!

I went for a walk in the park but it started raining. I did get 15 minutes in before it started. Then this afternoon I went for a bike ride - sun came out briefly.

Have to shred some pounds for the big Nov. wedding. :)

Blessings to you...

Awesome shoes! Mine have lots of silver but with a pink under tone. It's all about style right? BTW, no one beats Target's prices on sports bras. I'm just sayin'...

Jennifer Shirk said...

Target workout bras: check. :)

Tess said...

I like the purple. My hubby is a marathon runner and has a pair sort of like those, only they are red and silver. I don't love the red as much as I like yours.

Anna Claire said...

hey I'm from the South and I say sneakers, too. Go you for getting up to 1.25 miles! After I finally got fitted for a pair of good (and expensive) Brooks running shoes, my feet have never felt so good. SO worth it. Yours are absolutely lovely!

I have the exact same kind! Only mine are a different color. I love them!!
