College Essentials: Running Shoes

And I'm back! 

Classes started back today so I spent the weekend enjoying one last bit of freedom before things got crazy again. Which brings me back to my next college essential post!

Whether you are a gym junkie or your idea of physical activity is shopping, you need some running shoes in college.

I'm not the type to dress up for class. In fact, I dress like a hobo 95% of the time. No shame. So running shoes are a huge part of my wardrobe. I also spend about 2 hours a day in the gym. So I get some good use out of these suckers.

Most college campuses aren't nearly as huge as UGA's, but walking to class in sandals is not in the cards for this girl. Especially when I was a freshman and basically had to walk everywhere I went.

Investing in a good pair of running/tennis shoes is also a good way to maybe motivate yourself to go for the occasional run if that's not normally your thing.

I'm all about Nike for my workout gear, but when it comes to my running shoes- Mizunos all the way. (If you've got high arches, I highly recommend them.)

Here are a few of my favorite options:

I actually just purchased these to replace my crazy turquoise ones!

I'm pretty sure Alex just purchased these.

Both of those come in some crazy colors too, if that's your thing! These might also be a good choice too:

Nike Free 5.0- $100.00

Nike Balanza- $100.00

Nike Free 5.0- $100.00
I love the dark shoe with a pop of color! I may invest in these as training shoes.

And if you are more of a basic shoe kinda girl, I didn't forget about you.


If you ever needed an excuse to go shoe shopping- now is the time! A good pair of running shoes are a girls' best friend. Pinky promise. 

What is your favorite brand/type of running shoe?
