My New Kicks!

I've never been a huge fan of the stark white running shoes readily available on the market. As a (now retired) soccer player I've always sought out Adidas cross trainers or trail runners which come in beige or gray and don't show wear as quickly as their white counterparts. So, you can imagine how excited (yet torn, with respect to *years* of Adidas brand-loyalty) I was when J gifted me with a gift card that could be used to design my own NikeiD running shoes (totally compatible with my Nano and Nike+)!

I took my time designing my new Kicks to make sure they were exactly what I wanted. I started with a beige base color much like my current fave Adidas cross trainers but ultimately graduated to black. Yes, my design (pictured above) is completely non-traditional but if you know me then that makes PERFECT sense.

One week and four revisions later I finally felt ready to click that "Add to Cart" button. Since my new sneaks are indeed custom they will take an excruciatingly long 3-4 weeks to arrive. The anticipation is killing me....

  1. Those look so cool! Very creative. What a great concept Nike has come up with.
