Sneakers. Running shoes. Athletic shoes. Or my personal go-to: tennis shoes (remember, I grew up in the Midwest). Whatever you call them, isn’t it fun to get a new pair of sneakers? A shiny new pair of kicks does help motivate me to get moving. If I’m being honest, my running shoes are my most-worn shoes in my closet. I wear them daily for about 6-12 months until they lack all treads and are embarrassingly dirty. Then it is time to bite the bullet and invest in a new pair.

I know it is silly, but I hate buying myself new running shoes. They are always expensive and it can be really hard for me to find a pair I love enough to wear every single day. I’ve learned the hard way it is worth the $100+ to buy myself the exact pair I love. I’ve given myself shin splints and other miscellaneous foot injuries from cheaping out and buying a random sale pair on the internet. Not worth saving $40.
My personal favorite style of running shoes are the Nike Zoom Pegasus which Nike slightly updates every year. They have awesome support, cute patterns and are crazy comfortable. I’m now on my 3rd pair of Nike Zoom Pegasus (Pegasi??) in this super cute Sunburst pattern. I’m convinced they make me run faster, jump higher and burn more overall calories. Well, not sure about the calorie count, but they do help me get moving.
Am I jumping higher?!
Like I said, it can be really tough to find a cute new pair of sneaks. Some of them out there are so frumpy looking. Why should we have to sacrifice style to find comfortable kicks? So I’ve done the work and scoured the internet for my favorite pairs of running shoes which are cute and comfortable:
