You're Invited to the Nike Party

So you need some new trainers but don’t know what to get? 

Let’s discuss your options.

Disclaimer: I am not sponsored by Nike. (But should be).

First up the Free Runs, an easy little shoe but not so good for impact. Personally I'd enjoy wearing causally, exercise isn’t always the aim. Enjoy the following examples, plain black, super brights and patterns are all excellent.

Now the lunarglides, shown as models 3 (black and pink in first photo) and 5 (below). Good supportive shoe if you have knee problems or your feet tend to roll in (overpronate) as you run, like running (or jumping) on air, solid air.

Air maxes. Very edgy. So you should probably buy them if you want to look cool. Also like walking on cushions. So would go well on a hangover. Come in millions of colours and patterns. Very jealous of Victoria Beckham's metallic.

Overall lunarglide is probably best for more intense activity like runs, free runs decent for the gym or casual, and air maxes for casual (and comfy). Yes you could get this information from Niketown, but why do that when you can learn from the comfort of your bed?

Guys can also enjoy this unisex trend so don't shy away from BRIGHTS:

Edgy juxtaposition with the cigarette butts and wine bottle (I claim neither)

Don’t forget there really are other trainer brands than Nike.
Stella McCartney for Adidas is a goody for more chic sneaks.
