Call me crazy, but these are the shoes I bought today.
This design is much sleeker and a lot less clunky than my old sneakers... a good thing, but it might take some time to get used to. I couldn't quite go totally "minimal," so they do have some support and are a little less flexible than the super "lightweight" models out there these days.
I really considered the bright purple Nikes (my fave color!), but the laces didn't go far enough down towards the toe so they felt too wide for me.
As for these New Balance ones, the yellow soles and pink on the tongue are actually neon... like glow-in-the-dark bright. They're so... happy. I think the colors will give me an extra boost of motivation. And this gorgeous weather doesn't hurt either.
