Gobetrotter in Nike Flywire

Our model Globetrotter runs outside during the summer and at the end of last year her  Mizuno running shoes were starting to lose their cushioning. Globetrotter is small and very light but her tiny size 5 feet have extremely high arches that barely touch her insoles. This kills the cushioning in her shoes quickly.

She had liked her Nike Air Max Moto but she runs without socks and the fabric inside the shoes would chafe her skin when it became too sweaty… Last fall she asked if I could find other Nike Air shoes with a really soft interior and some bright colors, this is what I came up with.

These Nike Flywire are plush and soft inside, Globetrotter loved the colors and when she started running with them she said they remained comfortable even when very sweaty. Bingo! Here are the photos we took when the shoes were brand new.

Throwback Thursdays

I’m gonna introduce a new series of posts where I share images from the archives. I’ve been doing this for a long time now and I figure some of the newest visitors of the site might find it entertaining?

Back in early 2000’s I purchased my first digital camera. It was a Nikon Coolpix sumthin’ – way expensive but so cool compared to all the film I used to shoot!These are some of the first photos I ever took with it, featuring our long-gone model Jo.

Jo was the first “popular” girl on my various websites, she was really really good at making shoes smell ridiculously strong, these Mizuno Wave Rider running shoes were one of her best examples. Who remembers Jo?
