I must confess, I have never ever worn a pair of Brooks before. When I think back to my middle school days of cross country [SO LONG AGO], Brooks were always the white, old school looking shoes — or so I thought. I’ve ran in Nikes, Mizunos, Asics, Sauconys… I even have a barefoot running shoe [blanking on the brand], but no Brooks! You bet I screamed yes when Finish Line asked me to review a pair.
Although I try my best to pick a shoe based on function and prettiness, bright colors tend to always win me over. So, I’m sure you could imagine my excitement when I opened up the package from Finish Line + saw PINK+PURPLE OMBRE shoes. *swoon*
IF YOU THINK OMBRE LOOKS GOOD IN YOUR HAIR, YOU’LL THINK IT LOOKS KILLER ON YOUR KICKS.
I know what you’re thinking — gorgeous.
++ gorgeous they are. BUT, this kicks have other amazing elements to them. Here’s a few that I noticed right away!
LIGHT + FAST | Pick these up + you’ll be shocked by how light they are. Mama, I can run fast!
WALKING ON PILLOWS | These kicks are incredibly comfy + soft — yup, just like walking on pillows.
SUPPORTIVE | Somewhere in between Neutral + Support, they provide both cushion + stability.
PRETTY! | Alright, had to say it again — THEY ARE SO PRETTY ; ) We all have a girly side — now you can flaunt it while your run in style, just like a #FITionista.
++ I must say, these kicks look pretty good with our Classic Tank [grab yours here!].
While I was very impressed with the Brooks Ravenna 5 as soon as I put them on, the cherry on top was when I posted this picture asking you guys what you thought of Brooks + you had nothing but amazing things to say! After that, I was sold.
[FALLING IN LOVE] WITH MY BROOKS RAVENNA 5 + I KNOW YOU WILL, TOO. GRAB ‘EM HERE.
Thanks again Finish Line [+ Marissa!] for letting me review these gorgeous kicks.
See you on the trails. #runCHAARG
