These Nikes are the first pair of sneakers to grace my feet since the All Star revival that happened in my first year of High School. My All Stars were olive green with pastel pink lining and a year later I got gray ones that I still have. Now we are ten years later and the Air Max is back. As a child born in the early nineties, the return of mid length hair, cropped tops, rompers and Nikes causes me some nervousness. I remember well those awkward days, how fast the trends faded and how much I lagged behind. I was still wearing my cropped tops in 2005 and my classmates were unforgiving of that.
My work-out clothes needed an update. Until this summer I was using my gym class uniform and I graduated from high school in 2010. It was time for something new! I bought two outfits and my mom also let me pick out a new pair of running shoes. I chose the Nike LunarGlide because of their extra support. They are like heaven. I’m really walking on air. I’m not the type to wear sneakers out and about, but because we were doing a lot of walking in Germany I decided to pack these instead of my Teva sandals (too cold!). Sometimes I wear them to go grocery shopping too and when I’m going home from uni for the weekend just to walk more comfortably over the crooked city sidewalks. I’m loving them!
So behold, the first (and probably only) time you get to see me in sneakers on the blog. And again with the blazer, I know. It was just the perfect jacket to add some color to the black and white outfit.
I hope you guys had a great weekend!
Ik vind die sneakers je staan hoor, Nikki! ‘t Is wel een feit dat die trends zo snel veranderen.. Een mens zou voor minder nerveus worden 🙂

I am so the same about wearing tennies in public haha. I always end up wearing them when we walk around cities but they’re honestly not much more comfortable than my Tom’s or others. They’re more like “super sporty action running shoes” though, and super bright/obnoxious. I need some laid back walkers like those and I think I would feel totally fine wearing them out and about!

aaah zalige outfit! dat jasje is zo mooi en die kleur staat u enorm goed! love them shoes too
I got some Nike Free Runs for running but turns out they reeeeally hurt my feet + knees when I run (even if it’s just a couple of km), so then I just started wearing them for casual wear and now I can’t stop wearing them everywhere o.O

I love the new sneaker trend! Plus with being preggers I know it’s something I will be very thankful for in my last trimester

Really? I have become a sneakers junkie. They are so amazing and comfy. I am so glad that they are trending right now! Love this outfit so much!
Hmm… Nikes zijn toch niet mijn ding 😀 tenzij het is om mee te sporten. Zo heb ik een paar loopschoenen van Nikes.. en die zitten echt ge-wel-dig en draag ik dus ook graag, maar niet zo snel onder een dagelijkse outfit.
Je jasje vind ik trouwens zo mooi he!x
They look so practical and comfortable – and the blazer (which you know I love!) dresses it up nicely.
I like that they are a ‘trendy thing’ at the moment as it gives me more reason to embrace my love for my Converse and wear them out. Especially now the weather is cooling here. Havaianas for summer, Chucks for winter and I’m a happy happy girl 🙂
Away From The Blue

It’s a little strange seeing you in sneakers! They look amazing though. I need a pair of black sneakers I can get away with wearing with skinny jeans for a day with lots of walking. I absolutely adore this outfit! I’m pinning it to recreate 🙂
Hihi I feel you fellow 90s child :p Ik vind Nikes wel cool voor een gewone outfit als ik heel eerlijk mag zijn :p Maar kijk, goed dat smaken verschillen he 😀
Marlies (GM&PB) says
Ik vind het eigenlijk wel leuk voor een gewone, dagelijkse outfit. Classy meets sporty ofzo 😉
Zelf ben ik nog altijd in debat (met mezelf ja) of ik nu nikes ga kopen of niet. Het debat duurt al even en ik ben er nog steeds niet uit. Eerst een beetje sparen voor Japan en erna zien we wel weer 🙂
Ooh wauw de combinatie van de streepjes en de blauwe blazer is echt geweldig!
Sara Strauss says
I need to get a pair of Nikes! Those look great! Though I would love to get a purple pair. You know me and purple! I have an inexpensive pair, but sometimes they hurt my feet.
Kristian Olson says
The cobalt blue with the stripes is great!

Voor het einde van het jaar heb je een tweede paar, mark my words :p
