New Kicks: The Nike Winflo 6
I call these Nikes my “elf shoes” ? because of the pointy curve in the heel…
So, I’ve been spending a lot of time on my feet considering that I started working at the bakery, and now even when I’m off cake/cupcake duty, I’m very particular — a lot more particular than ever before — about my shoes.
At this point in my life, I’d rather be comfortable than cute…
I know — who AM I?
At any rate, my tootsies crave supportive footwear that concurrently makes me feel like I’m walking on cushioned clouds. No stiff shoes for this girl!
Enter these Nikes.
I’ve been living my best life in these Winflo 6 Running Shoes, which I love because, not only do they lift my arches up enough to keep ’em stable, they’re also on the squishier side, so I feel like there are fluffy cumulous clouds strapped to my feet…
They’re firm and supportive, but not stiff or uncomfortable.
This is the third generation of these shoes I’ve worn, and I think it’s the best-feeling, cutest one yet.
The large base around the heel keeps my ankles from rolling, and the fabric makes them featherweight (they required absolutely *no* time to break in). I also love the subtle pink and purple color blocking and the “swish” on the insdie heel.
The shoe comes in other colors, too, ranging from conservative (gray, black and white) to colorful (berry, black and hot pink!). I like this particular color combo because the black and white are pretty standard issue, so I can wear these with a lot of outfits, but the pop of pink keeps it fun.
I wear them all the time — when I’m working out, when I’m toolin’ around Novato, or whenever I need to do things with Connor, because you never know when you’ll have to break into a sprint when you hang out with a child.
I love them so much that I’m thinking about getting a second pair.
You can find this style nearly anywhere that carries athletic shoes. I just saw them at Dick’s sporting goods in Petaluma and DSW in Novato, and online at nike.com and nordstromrack.com.
