Just showing off my beautiful new runners, a birthday present from YY, Wai Lam, Jenny and Tina. Before I injured my knee, I'd been planning to reward myself with a new pair of sneakers once I finished C25K. I had my eye on these Nike Free 5.0 v4s because blue and red is my favourite colour combination, so my friends stepped in and bought them for me. Thanks guys ♥




Hearts in my eyes, I love them so much. I have always been adamant about only wearing sneakers when running/exercising, but I'm tempted to break all sorts of promises to myself and incorporate them into my everyday outfits. They're super comfortable, it feels like my feet are being enveloped in a loving embrace... I've actually been wearing them as glorified house slippers, seeing as I'm not going to be freeing my run anytime soon. But they'll definitely give me the motivation to get back on track once I've fully recovered.

  5. The V4's are pretty fresh, esp in this colourway. my mate has them in black and grey but these look top. i have the older version of the 5.0 regular in navy, neon orange and neon yellow. pretty bright indeed. i bought them for running but got used to how they feel so just wear them all the time now. its how it goes

  8. I have a pair of Nike Freerun 5.0 myself! I love them so much so I definitely know what you're talking about! Do you know when you will be able to run again? I hope it's nothing like 3-6 months!

    1. I'm not sure, I've only just begun walking without crutches and I don't want to push it. But hopefully nothing like that!

  10. They look great! I bought myself a pair of Nikes too (kid's size because I have midget feet) and they are super comfy. The hard part is trying to weave them into casual outfits for uni without looking like you went to uni instead of the gym.

    Hope you recover soon enough to run well again!

  22. Nothing like a cute pair of running shoes that are comfortable for everyday wear. I'm sorry, but sometimes running shoes and jeans just have to happen together. Super cute! Let me know how you like them!

  31. That is so sweet of your friends! I have almost the same ones! They are so light and comfortable. I love how thines nikes add a bit of playfulness to a sophisticated look and also wear them in everyday life

  32. These v4's are looking pretty snazzy indeed. It's great you're running, I'm useless at it and get out of breath so quickly!

    Also I draw a bit of both, like the header on my blog for instance is imagination but usually with animals it's either photographs ive taken or ones online, depends on how much detail I want to create. I wish I had detailed vision that some artists have in their mind!

  33. wah. that's very kind of your friends! Regarding to your knee injury, I hope that you are feeling better. Speedy recovery!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Your friends are very sweet. The trainers do indeed look very cool (do people still use that word? Ha).

    I do like Nike trainers, I had a air of their fit ones years ago, the designs are way better than any of the other brands I've come across.

  41. Hi Jane, congrats for the gift! I am very happy for you. Lately, I've been in that wave too. Not in the running thing, but in the cycling. By the way, if you have an iPhone ou iPad, you have some great free apps on AppStore just like 'Nike+Running' and others. I'm using 'Strava Cycling' for cycling. Enjoy the ride!

  42. aaaah, these shoes are amazing!
