Meet my new addiction:
First, the obvious selling point: if I fall down in the dark and get trapped under one of the banana trees around our house, I’m easy to find. Just look for the shoelaces.
These Nike Free Run +2 are my new walking shoes. When it comes to long distance runs, I remain wholeheartedly a Mizuno Wave girl. But the Waves aren’t great for long walks. Enter the Free Runs, the lightest shoes I’ve ever picked up. In fact, I thought they forgot to put them in the shoebox when I got them. There’s no tongue, just a mesh overlay. Apparently, these shoes were designed based on the “delicate anatomy of the foot” and promote a natural, barefoot stride.
Put simply, they’re just plain comfortable.
They’re also very good for running sprints. But I’m on holiday so sprints are not part of the conversation. But walking miles along the beach at sunset? I’m in.
