Considering my unhealthy aversion to exercise, it's a shocker that I actually ran in these sneakers-- even though said running was more out of fear of being late to a final, than for the sake of physical fitness. I'll say my "sporty" look helped tone down the awkwardness of my running, but I'd be delusional to truly believe that. It wasn't even actual, full-on running, but more of that weird speed walking-like jog, the one you do when you're carrying a bag and holding notes and don't want to break out in a sprint. Or maybe you don't do it, and it's just awkward, ol' me. 


  1. I know exactly what you're talking about when it comes to that awkward speed walking-jog. I'm not a typical person for exercise either. Running to class is as good as it gets. So no it's not only you. And you can't go wrong with a sporty look.

  2. Haha oh the awkward walk-jog. I'm seen doing that constantly in the office and I know my co-workers must think I look crazy.
    Love the sneakers though, the sporty look is perfectly on-trend and you executed it flawlessly :]

  4. I love this sporty casual look. I really need to invest in a good pair of sneakers that I can wear with skirts!


  5. Nope, I totally know about the awkard jog-walk...haha it just feels weird to go sprinting across campus.
    But the sporty look definitely would help! I want these sneakers
