If only they were impractical and pretty.
The last pair of proper sneakers I had were purchased back when I was in high school for the purpose of Saturday morning netball. They found there way to a rubbish bin in Wellington a few years back after a big day walk (train to Johnsonville, walk back to Wellington…). I stepped in some dog poop (or cow?) and couldn’t face washing them. So they got trashed. Laziness to the extreme, though by that point they were at least 7 years old, so not such a big problem.
I didn’t buy another pair of sneakers for some great number of years (that explains the bulge). They were $10 and purchased off a one day deal site. They were pretty average. After six months of regularly gym-going I decided it was time to buy some proper sneakers.
But i’m still cheap.
These were on sale for $60. They’re not as pink as I would like, but they’ll do for the next year or so. Then it’s all pink all the way.
They’ve already seen the inside of the gym twice, and I’m very stoked to say they’re comfortable and add a spring to my step!
