Oh Jesus, may the fashion gods forgive me, for I have SINNED. Here is my confession:
Since the snow finally melted, I’ve been trying to spend more time walking in the fresh air. You know, as opposed to being cramped up in a sweaty subway car full of thousands of people with different (and often questionable) hygiene habits.
So yesterday I decided to go cop a new pair of walking sneakers. And at some point, during the 20 minutes I was in the store I noticed that the majority of the sales girls were wearing Sketchers Shape-Ups. Which strikes me as odd because of all the options at their disposal- Asics, Nike, Reebok, New Balance; these women ALL voluntarily picked ugly ass SKETCHERS? WTH?
So I pulled this cute little black girl who clearly didn’t require any shaping to the side and asked her what was really hood with everyone wearing the official Guido housewife sneakers. And she told me, it had nothing to do with a promotion or even toning up. According to her, they are simply the most comfortable sneakers she’s worn in LIFE.
I’m sure you can already see where this is going…
Next thing I know, my highly impressionable ass is trying them on. And I gotta tell you, that girl ain’t NEVA lied. Like my grey suede Uggs- FUGLY beyond words but feel like MAGIC on my feet. SMDH.
Needless to say, I am now the mortified owner of a new pair of Sketchers Shape-Ups.
*hangs head in shame & disbelief*
I hate myself right now.
