As you guys all know, I like to see a new bright orange Nike box over a Tiffany’s blue box any day. Yeah I may not be a normal girl, but I just LOVE Nike shoes that much!
I am lucky enough to be partnered with Finish Line and they sent me a new pair of Nikes to review.
Oh the anticipation of opening that beautiful orange box!!! I had no idea what they sent me..
BOOM! A pair of some Nike FREE 5.0+ Shield Running Shoes! They are a purplish blue color with a flash of florescent yellow. I don’t have any purple or dark blue shoes yet so I’m pumped! I’m now officially a part of the FLASH PACK! #flashpack
Even though the sun was about to go down and I wasn’t planning on going for a run, I just had to try out my new shoes. Every time I get some new workout gear, I always get so excited to workout in it!
If only I had a new item of clothing for EVERY workout, I’d be unstoppable! haha.
Miss Mya and I decided to hit the streets for a quick run. She LOVES running with me and is a pretty good running partner except for when she sees another dog, she just wants to play with them instead.
This is what Mya thinks of running when she sees another dog she would rather play with.
It was a perfect night for a run. It was a nice fall day. We ran about 1.5 miles.
As for the shoes, they were excellent. I don’t know what it is about Nikes but whenever I wear them for the first time, it feels like I’ve had them forever. They just fit my feett perfectly and it doesn’t take some “breaking in” to make them feel comfortable. I never get blisters or anything from Nikes and that’s why I’m such a fan!!!
They are the Nike Free 5.0 Shield Running Shoes.
A little bit about the shoes from the Finish Line Site that I thought was interesting…
You’d never let rain, sleet or snow, stand in the way of your run, but can your shoes handle the elements? Upgrade your pair to the winter-weather ready Nike Free 5.0 Shield Running Shoes. As members of the Nike Flash Pack, these runners are designed to stand up to whatever Mother Nature has in store. Featuring either waterproof Shield treatment or Reflective 3M treatment–runners in the Flash Pack are (almost) as tough as you.
Nike Shield technology is the standout star on this model of the Nike Free 5.0, as it offers reflectivity for short, wintry days and water-resistance for when Mother Nature tries to stand in your way. Flywire technology on the upper also adds stability and a lightweight, extremely responsive feel for everyday runs.
These will be a major go-to for my outdoor fall and winter running since they are so weather resistant with flashes of bright colors. Woohoo!
