For my birthday a few weeks back, my husband bought me these beautiful Nike Air Max 97s. It’s the first pair of shoes I’ve gotten in 2020. As I mentioned in my last post, I’ll be sticking to a new set of sneaker guidelines: The Six Commandments. It’s all a part of my journey to becoming the anti-sneakerhead.
In those freshly laid out tenets, I vow to keep my shoes as long as possible. You might be asking yourself, how long is that? Well–truthfully–I have no idea. So to grasp it more fully, I’m going to track every single mile I walk in these brand new cuties.
By now, I’m sure you’ve heard enough of my squawking. Let’s get to the sneakers themselves:
As I welcome these extraordinarily colorful beauties into my closet, it’s time to retire an old pair that no longer function. Sadly, I blew out the bottom of these Zoom’s on a hike in Colorado.
I bought them during the summer of 2017, right after moving to Kansas City. They were my running sneakers for years. I put hundreds (maybe even thousands) of miles on them–and I’m damn proud of that.
Follow along in the future as I work through what it means to get to most out of a pair of sneakers.
