Hence, I purchased the brightest possible shoe I could find!
I really really really wanted the Tiffany blue color, but couldn't find them and didn't want to spend a gazillion dollars special ordering them online from Nike.

|Obnoxious but oh so cute!|
"There's the bright shoe girl!"
"You can really see ya coming from a mile away!"
My official response?
"Thanks! I'm trying to be trendy!" Which I realize makes me completely NON-trendy. It's like if you have to tell someone that you're cool or a badass, you really aren't; you're just a poser.
As I've mentioned before, I have a difficult time finding shoes that actually fit my feet correctly. I even went to the running store to get properly fitted. And guess what fit me best? The ugliest shoes in the store. The sales guy didn't understand why I kept asking him if they had any "cute" shoes in the store. I decided to save my money and instead buy some "cute" shoes that aren't appropriate for cardio. Yeah, smart, I know.
So I wear my trendy shoes when I train, and then switch to my practical shoes for cardio. Totally inefficient and ridiculous - I agree. But that's the price I'm willing to pay in order to join the neon colored shoe trend.
