I have been loving my Nike Flyknit shoes!  I’m not usually one to kick around in sneakers, but I love how these feel and look!

Initially I bought these as my running shoes, but I honestly feel that if you want to do any sort of actual mileage running you need support.  I’m so glad that the whole minimalist shoe craze is dying down a bit.  Now I’m no expert, but I think it might have a little something to do with this:

My anger towards how ugly the vibram shoe is and how the company is taking advantage of how society loves to jump on health band wagons has been greatly vindicated by there decline in sales (50% this year).  Annnnyways, back to my nike flyknits

I love how clean they look, and how functional they are in my day to day life (lot’s of moving around when working with small children).  I would highly recommend them for day to day use, and casual walking.

Oliver loves them as well 😉

If you’re looking for a good pair of running shoes, I highly recommend the Brooke’s Ravenna.  They have been really supportive (great for my knee).  I got them at Super Jock and Jill (which is an amazing running store in Greenlake), and I can’t say enough about how awesome they are.

IMG_6612The ironic thing about this shoe is it’s the 5th edition and I actually think I purchased the 1st edition when they originally came out, but for some reason I got away from them (shoes change so much one edition to the next – it’s wild).

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and maybe got a run or two in.  Dave and I managed to get out for our long run today and it was glorious!

Be well.
