My New Athletic Shoe of Choice, & Why I Chose It...
We all have that favorite pair of shoes that we wear almost daily, wearing them to death! Sadly, there comes a day when they just don’t cut it anymore, and can’t keep up with you... Recently, for me that was my pair of Adidas athletic tennis shoes. I loved these, and have worn them almost daily for years due to their sleek style, and comfortable fit. Yet, recently they’ve felt broken down, little arch support, and are not cutting it for my daily busy schedule living in the city where I tend to walk frequently.
So, my first place to look for a replacement was the newly opened Bandier store on Bond street in New York! If you’ve never been to bandier, what are you doing?! You need to go now! Of course, finish reading this blog first ;) Bandier is a paradise when it comes to anything fitness, athletisure, and beauty/wellness. The store itself is impressive. Gorgeous floor to ceiling mirrors grace the walls, shoes are displayed on a gold and glass shelf lighted from underneath, and the staff is kind and ready to help at your beckoning call.
After studying the different shoes they offered, one brand stood out to me amongst the always classic brands such as Nike, Puma, and Adidas. The brand is “ON”, a Swedish based running shoe company which is quickly making themselves known. The style I went with is their Cloud Waterproof design. It’s lightweight, waterproof, and has easy no-tie laces for a quick no hassle slip on, which means you can get out the door even quicker!!
At a price point of $149.99, I am happy with my decision! Living in NYC with a dog, I have to run out the door first thing in the mornings to walk her, and my days are filled with either running to meetings, catching a workout, or daily errands. This lightweight pair of tennis shoes are easy to travel with, great for running and working out in, and flex with anyone's busy lifestyle! If you are in need of a new pair of comfy sneakers, or workout shoes, I highly recommend checking out ON shoes to make you feel "ON Your A Game"!
