I was talking to my friend recently about finding exercise motivation when you reeeaalllly don’t feel like it. I mentioned that something that always puts a pep in my step is a pair of new sneakers or a fresh workout outfit. She told me she hadn’t upgraded her sneakers in a few years and hadn’t experienced this New Shoes Joy™ before. I awwww’d in sympathy — what else could I do? A few weeks later she went shopping, got a new pair of sneakers, and texted me excitedly to say I was right and that they had motivated her to have a great workout. Yay!
To be honest, I hadn’t experienced New Shoes Joy™ for quite a while either. Because of my sustainability challenge this year, I’m not allowing myself to purchase new clothes or shoes, so I’ve been making do with the (plenty of) pairs I already have. But as a self-professed shoe freak, I was a little sad about it. Enter my new pair of Reebok Trilux. They were sent to me for free for review and fall under the “gift loophole” in my no-new-stuff challenge!
My pair of Reebok Trilux is in the black and gray colorway, and they’re perfect with the athleisure outfits I like to wear while I run errands. The pop of shiny gold in the laces gives them a little je ne sais quoi that my other pairs of casual shoes don’t have.
Although they’re stylish and perfect for casual wear, I couldn’t resist but to also wear them to the gym. They held up great through the walking lunges you see below!
These will be the sneakers I bring with me on my upcoming trip to a resort in Cancun. Why? Because they’re cute enough to wear with casual summer looks AND durable enough for a few gym workouts. I love a multipurpose shoe when I travel because the less space I take up in my luggage with shoes, the better.
Expect to see these bad boys show up in some future posts as I recap my Cancun trip! The trip is a big deal for me for multiple reasons…not the least of which being that it’s a celebration of my recent 30th birthday. Yep, 30.
