I’ve been dying for brands to come out with fierce, sexy yet chic workout gear for so long and feel like it wasn’t until just a few years ago that companies were finally on board with my style of workout clothes. Let me tell you, buying workout gear is addicting especially when your athleisure style vibes with your fashion sense.
Exercising is tough in itself already so for a girl who loves fashion, there’s nothing that motivates me more than having a legit workout wardrobe. It’s like putting on a full suit of armor and the doors bursting wide open as you walk into the gym with your life’s theme song playing in the background and a wind machine is blowing on you.
Okay, that was a little dramatic, but I’m serious. There’s just something about wearing an outfit that makes you feel so good and confident that you power through your workouts, at least for me anyway.
As I’m getting back into my regular workout routine, I’m putting so many things on my athleisure wishlist, especially shoes. My feet were in pain during Saturday’s bootcamp so I knew it was time to get another set of workout shoes so today, I share with you three workout shoes I’m coveting hardcore for.
APLs have been on my radar since I saw Marianna wear them on her Instagram. Sleek, sexy and definitely my kind of style when it comes to having some style at the gym. Um, I’ll take these in white, grey, taupe, blush and parchment please. Heck, I’ll take them all because I wouldn’t mind having a beautiful APL shoe wall! If you dig this style as much as I do, you can also see and order other APL styles at Saks, Nordstrom, Revolve or Shopbop.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Nike and their products. My go-to shoe from them for the last four years has been the TR style (this white pair is similar). Lightweight and close to the foot is what I like. I normally go to neutral colors these days, but I may just venture out of my comfort zone and nab these pink sneakers. What do you think? I also love this Air Zoom Strong pair, this Air Presto pair and this Metcon 2 pair!
I obviously love this style since I used a picture of it in one of my BBG update posts. These grey pair with blush accents and blush pair with grey accents is SO hard to find as they have been sold out everywhere. Aren’t these pairs to die for? I don’t think I’ll ever find these, but hey, a girl can dream, right??
I prefer to rotate between two pairs of sneakers to get the most wear out of them for my workouts. The hard part is figuring out which two of the three shoe styles above I’m going to nab. I know. First class, first world problems.
Are you a fan of athleisure? What shoe brands do you use and love?
