Shot Out to Shape Ups

I will preface this by saying I have not bought tennis shoes since sophomore year of college. In fact, I did not buy a pair of flats until I bought my Revas last year. I've been hopelessly addicted to high heels for as long as I can remember.

After a doctor's appointment, I decided to head to the Skechers store to test drive the Shape Ups. First of all, they are not cute. Quite the opposite of cute. Second, the moment I stuck my foot inside these babies I felt like I was on a boat. Third - I'm a cheap shoe lover. I wear my shoes hard and till they die, and I rarely spend over $50. That being said, I sucked it up and paid $100 for these. For the sake of my health and my butt.

And you know what? I most definitely feel the burn. After wearing them around my house I stopped feeling like I was on a cheap cruise, and now can't even tell that I'm wearing ginormous boat shoes. And the padding! Did you know that insoles can be built with clouds? Because I swear these shoes are. Beauty over comfort, but if you're already over the fact that you're wearing ugly orthopedic shoes it sure does help that they're amazing to wear.

I know, lately I've not only blogged about ugly workout shoes, but the purchasing of banjos. Where did my fashion posts go? I have to say that when it gets warm out my love of fashion fails me a bit, but I'll work on dressing well and looking good for you guys, I promise. No take backs.
