Ph. me

From the moment I started running with the Nike Running club, formerly know as We Run Ams, now know as Ams Runners (what’s in a name?), and started sharing my love for sports online on Instagram I started receiving questions about how many times a week I run, what shoes I wear, where I get my runninggear, how I stay motivated.. oh well, I received questions about pretty much everything sportsrelated. First of all, I want to make very clear that I, by all means, am not an expert. I run for fun (and even joined the GirlsLove2Run crew, awesome!). I’ve practised many, many sports in my life, and I’m interested in a broad range of sportrelated topics, but again: I won’t pretend I’m an expert or whatsoever. 

That being said, I can come to the maingoal of this article: answer one of the questions I got (several times!): “What runningshoes do you wear?” If you had asked me this very same question a few weeks ago, I would have told you my very favourite shoes would probably be the Nike Air Lunarglide 4’s. And I still think it’s a perfect pair of shoes, more cushioning than Nike Free’s have (my ankles are very weak) and more support around the ankles. But: I reviewed these awesome Nike Air Pegasus 30 Shield running shoes this week, and I can’t seem to take them off!


What do they promise? “The Nike Air Pegasus+ 30 Flash Trainer continues a legendary tradition with an updated breathable upper and super-responsive cushioning. Water resistance, reflectivity and a fleece collar make it ideal for running in wet, dark, cold conditions.”


What do I think? This shoe absolutely is everything I wished for. I won’t go through all medical details, but I have had lots and lots of injuries on my ankles in the past, so it’s very important for me to find  the right shoe. From the moment I started running on these, I felt the difference between these and any other shoes I ever ran on, because the cushioning of the shoe is so soft and thick, it almost felt like I was bouncing down the cobbled streets of Amsterdam ;) Such a soft landing! Even when running downhill (or should I say: downbridge?) I didn’t feel those aweful slaps in my ankles I usually I do feel (does that sound bad? Yes it does..). SCORE! And what about that shield? Heaven! One of the downsides of running in fall or winter to me is the cold. I’m not afraid of it and I defenitely am prepared for colder days clothing-wise.. but damn! Cold feet can hurt! Solved this problem with these shoes as well: the shield truly protects your socks from getting wet by rain or snow and warms your feet like your running on Uggs (don’t try that, really..). I’m hooked. Get them here.


In the future I’m going to post more sports-related articles in SFFTE. I want to make very clear that my blog will remain a personal fashionblog, so written from my personal view, but since running is something I’m very passionate about and has become a huge part of my life, I’d love to answer you questions and add a little sporty vibe to the blog too. Hope you like it :) Requests? Questions? Don’t hesitate, ask them in the commentsection below.

  1. Wat grappig, ik heb deze schoenen toevallig dit weekend zelf ook gekocht! Omdat ik momenteel met een blessure zit was me aangeraden om schoenen te kopen bij een winkel die wat meer verstand heeft op het gebied van voeten. En na een loopanalyse kwamen deze, voor mij, als beste uit de test. Ik kan ze helaas nu nog niet uitgebreid proberen, maar kan niet wachten totdat ik een stukje met ze kan gaan hardlopen. :)


  2. Echt superleuk dat je meer over rennen gaat posten! Ik vind het ook best motiverend werken. Altijd als ik zie dat jij weer goed bezig bent geweest heb ik zoiets van: Nou ik moet ook maar dan. Haha! Mooie schoenen trouwens, ze zien er fijn uit! Ik ren nog altijd op mijn Flyknits, die zitten me hartstikke goed :)


  3. Ik zie zoveel mensen die hardlopen de laatste tijd en ik kan mezelf er maar niet toe zetten het te doen. Vreselijk, vind ik het. Maar die schoenen… Die zijn wel erg tof!
