Shoe Crush : Nike Air Pegasus 83

Nike Air Pegasus
I've been mildly obsessed with this pair of NIke Air Pegasus 83 sneakers since spotting them for the first time in the J. Crew fall catalog last month. These limited edition reissues actually look alot like the Nikes I sported as a kid only in a much cooler color combo. Hello metallic swoosh! I'm midway through physical therapy sessions for my ankle now and realistically, I doubt I'll be able to go back to my regular shoes for awhile even after I'm done. I ordered these on Monday and boy am I glad I didn't wait any longer cause they're almost sold out. I plan on styling my new kicks with skinnies and cropped tapered pants/cords. So my question is, do you wear sneakers/trainers other than while working out?

Ooh, great purchase!! I love the metallic detailing and the suede. I actually don't wear tennis shoes besides working out. But I've been seeing so many bloggers wear them as fashion pieces. I'm excited to see a picture of how you styled them! : )

Hi Rowena! Well done, you did right! The sneakers are super cool and I believe you will wear them a lot. I also wear sneakers even though I am not working out, I think is a kind of shoes suitable with everything, plus is also very trendy at the moment to match them with classy garments! Hope your ankle heal soon btw, have a lovely day! Kisses! xo

I had a pair like this back in 8th grade... Which was like ohhhhhhhh 18 years ago? barf... Anyways I still have them which is sad. I could never part with them b/c of the style. I'm just glad they came back out with them a few years ago. (:

These are really cute! I gotta admit I don't wear sneakers out though since I have so many pairs of flats. My Fit Flop sandals are my ugly/super comfortable shoes!

I do wear them all the time, even more so now than when I was younger! They're just so easy to wear, and you can basically do anything wearing them:) These Nike ones are super cool.

PS
Rowena, we actually didn't get to Target until about past 8am, which was why I didn't get any of the bags....boooo!

These are really really cute! I want a pair now! I live in my keds or superga sneakers, all about comfort, I'm' always on the lookout for a cute pair of sneakers :)

Kim Alston said...

those are cute and so glad you got them before selling out. sneakers are so cute nowadays. right now i'm only using them to work out, but I wouldn't mind sporting them with my regular outfits. i wore my brace for a month. LOL i was so glad when everything felt better. i'll post my marc jacobs towards the end of next week and link your post. sounds great.

Hi sweetheart.. I appreciate you stopping by and lending me your kind remarks. This is such a slick pair, like the bit of metallic. Would you believe that I do not own a single pair of sneakers?

Brandi said...

I've been looking for a new pair of sneakers. I usually buy Pumas, but those Nike's are really nice. Thanks for sharing.

jeanine said...

I wear mine on the way to work and back because my feet hate me. I wear socks all day at work and shoes only when I have to leave the office so I guess I'm lucky! :)

I love the colors and textures. Touch of red and metallic swoosh makes it stand out. :)
