These are the Saucony Grid Lightspeed gym shoes which I purchased yesterday at DSW. Alas, a quick Google search just now doesn't reveal this most awesome color combo anywhere on the Internet. Just goes to show ya, the Internet isn't the end all be all.
I recently blogged about Nike, and I think they're a great company. I initially bought, at DSW, a pair of their pretty well-known shoes from their "Free" line, which look similar to the pair above.
I got sucked in to following the herd (since all the cool kids at the gym wear Frees, I wanted a pair, too and also their ad that I linked to in the recent blog entry where talked a bit about Nike, I am confident will agree it is a great advertisement) and not trusting my instinct. I was a product of being marketed at!
Over the years I have had numerous pairs of Saucony Jazz. Black, red, navy, green and yellow, etc. They are, without a doubt, the most comfortable but cool (some can say hipster, that is fine with me) fun sneaker out there.
Anyway, I got home, put on the Nikes and They.Didn't.Feel.Comfortable.
Saucony always, always, always did right by me, so I persuaded DSW to let me use a $5 birthday coupon which I didn't even have with me but didn't use this year.
Oh, and how to pronounce?
