FAVORITE NEW PURCHASE A couple weeks ago I customized a pair of Nikes online, and they were finally delivered to my door this past Friday.
Y'all have absolutely no idea how excited I am that they are finally here. I don't think they've left my feet since they arrived. I can't believe I've waited this long to actually buy a pair either. If you're a college student, you know how popular these shoes are, and I am ashamed to say this is my first pair. I should have had them like, three years ago. But better late than never, right?

But the first reaction I had from my shoes (as in from my mom and Bryan) was 'why they are black.' Is it unusual to have black tennis shoes? That was the first thing both of them asked me, and I just don't understand the big deal. I figured black would be best because you don't have to worry about getting them dirty. Bryan was also super concerned that they were so plain. Apparently he likes at least three colors on his shoes. Go figure... But, honestly, I like low-key non-fussy shoes. If they're too bright or too colorful or too over-the-top I won't wear them. Simple as that. I need my shoes, especially tennis shoes, to always match what I'm wearing. And since workout clothes, or really any clothes that you'd wear tennis shoes with, come in so many colors, I need my shoes to be toned down so I don't look silly when I'm working out (yes, it happens on occasion) or just bumming around. Yes, I do think about these things; it's very important to me.

But anyway, these are my new shoes! And I love them! Like, it's borderline obsessive... I can't wait to wear them again today.

How do you like your Nikes?
