My adored running shoes with the lime green trim are on their last, smelly steps, and it’s time for me to invest in a new pair. Since I had the good fortune of finding my foot dream brand circa 11th grade — any Adidas running shoe in size 8.5 — I generally just buy whatever I can find online for a reasonable price. Which is great because I generally find shoe shopping totally overwhelming.
Enter my dilemma. First, we have Exhibit 1:
Totally normal price for me to spend on running shoes, nice look overall…but could I abandon my green kicks for pink? I know it has treated others well, but still. Lime green is sort of my jam.
So we turn to Exhibit 2:
Lovely Lime. But I’m used to my lime options being the bottom end of the price spectrum. Is lime (gasp) cool now? Can I justify spending even $15 more for my fave color? Also, what’s with all the white? That is going to turn an unattractive shade of drab in no time at all.
And then finally, Exhibit 3:
Now I ask you, members of my shoe jury, just what the wonderful people at Adidas were smoking when they decided that these shoes were “Grey/Green”? “Green”?? Am I developing color-blindness from staring too closely at case books, or are those shoes yellow? Better question — at a mere $40, and after three years of school debt, do I really get to care?
So here I am, potentially abandoning my favorite shade for yellow. Clearly #WhiteNerdyDCGirlProblems.
I have been shamefully behind in both reading and writing blog posts these last three weeks — basically a grading assignment and two trial advocacy competitions blew up my life — but I will say that besides law school stuff, for the most part all I have done is run. Which is just so good for ally my inner calm, sanity, happiness, etc. And so I offer up this little gem as an apology for my absenteeism: RunKeeper. Try it, love it…it brings me joy.
