About two weeks ago while scouring the latest issue of Lucky magazine I was stopped in my tracks by what appeared to be a pair of pink Nike Free’s. I spent the next few hours scanning the net for what I knew was going to be my new workout shoes. I finally found them at Nordstrom, ordered them and impatiently waited for them to arrive on my doorstep. When I opened the box I was more than shall you say shocked- they were not pink, but bright fluorescent orange. I quickly took a picture of them, posted it to Instagram and was surprised to see that people were actually liking the picture. Seriously, they’re fluorescent! Thankfully my good friend Cindy Whitehead aka Sports Stylist who is not only a great person, but the most fashionable gal I know told me to keep them and that I could pull off fluorescent! While it did take a bit of convincing, I’m so glad I listened to her- they’re not only comfortable but the color has actually grown on me. My only problem was finding how to incorporate them into a wardrobe, but thankfully, I spotted this photo of Minka Kelly in them. Don’t you just love how they’re styled? Chic, fashion forward and in spring 2012’s hottest trend: fluorescent orange.
***Unfortunately the Nike Free Run+3 in Hot Punch and Reflective Silver are no longer available (I’ll keep you posted if/when they are) but here’s a color combo I love just as much!
