I know you’re taking photos once in a while, it’s too easy with a smartphone nowadays… Maybe it’s a girl at the gym, your neighbor, wife or girlfriend… Here’s one sent in by a visitor who convinced his wife to try running without socks. He said she’s still getting used to it but apparently her Asics Nimbus 13 already smell a lot more and she doesn’t seem to mind it. I don’t know if it’s real or not, but the photo is nice so here it goes.

What do you think, it’s a nice change from my “organized” photo sessions no?

TBT – Shox Navina

The shots in this megapost (10 pages of photos!) date back from 2008. These shoes have been sold once and since then SM has procured another pair I’ve posted a few teaser shots of.

You are looking at one of SM’s best pair of shoes ever; she absolutely loved them. She worked out hard in them and she’d spend weeks wearing them every day too. They were also one of her most impressive accomplishments when it comes to smell, despite their clean look outside I have yet to have another model end up with shoes that smelled that much. I’m not sure it’s even possible.

I was in Florida for a buddy’s wedding in the last few days and it reminded me of this photo set. Early mornings by the beach there is a huge stream of athletic women of all shapes and sizes walking and jogging; there’s something for everyone.

Check out SM in this photo session from last year, unlike other pretty girls with sexy legs you can rest assured that SM never wears socks, and if she’s jogging near the beach her shoes and feet are guaranteed to smell incredible!

SM in Nike Shox NZ SL

It’s one of the things I’ve always found impressive about our fantastic model SM. She’s always loved leather Nike Shox running shoes and she likes wearing them without socks. On a hot summer day. At the gym running on a treadmill. All day at work. Anything.

These particular Shox NZ have a thick absorbent interior material, they smell ten times more than her more breathable all-fabric Nike Shox too! She doesn’t mind the insane smell since none of it can escape while she’s wearing them, nobody notices it; until she takes them off obviously…

Sorry for the cell phone photos, that’s all I had. Any comments?

With the cold winters we have up here by mid February I’m starting to suffer serious from withdrawal when it comes to my “women in running shoes” addiction…

Oh how I miss the +30 C. hot summer days where my girlfriend comes home from jogging and her running partner who is trying out jogging without socks looked something like this. Wicked.
