I was perusing the SUPERBALIST App on my mobile phone last night and noticed their Black Friday Showdown starts today and runs until 29 November.
Perfect timing too, because I’m on the hunt for the perfect pair of Black Friday Sneakers, and I need you to help me choose.
Being a bit of a sneakerhead myself, there are 5 styles I’m REALLY keen on:
Style 1 – Converse Run Star Motion R2,099 – BUY
First off are the edgiest pair – but by far the most unique & eye catching. The Converse Run Star Motion takes the classic Converse DNA and pairs it with an ultra-modern, innovative midsole to completely redefine platform style. I love how this style brings sport and high fashion together.
Style 2 – Nike Air Max Pre-Day R2,399 – BUY
Next up are these gorgeous Nike Air Max Pre-Day. This classic style has been given an update that’s ready for today’s modern world. I adore the shades of lilac and the fact that these are made with at least 20% recycled material. Originally designed for performance running, the Air cushioning adds comfort.
Style 3 – Adidas Stan Smith Originals R1,499 – BUY
I’m also in the market for a new pair of the classic Adidas Stan Smith originals (my current ones are 8 years old!). I would opt for the classic white colour with traditional green accents. I love the timeless appeal of this style that is so versatile and has been a favourite for over 50 years.
Style 4 – Adidas NMD1 R2,799 – BUY
These keep popping up on my social media feeds and, to be honest, I’m now mildly obsessed with them. I love how the colourful leopard print gives these sneakers some serious attitude. The style also features the best technology from the running world, has plush Boot cushioning and a soft upper to ensure comfort & performance.
Style 5 – Superga 275 Cotu Classic Canvas – R749 – BUY
I can’t resist a red bag or pair of shoes! When I spotted these babies from Superga, my heart started beating a little faster.
I love the classic styling which includes a rounded toes, lo-tops and lace ups. I’d wear them with blue (or black) denims or a white sundress. Years ago, I had a pair in navy that I wore on an almost daily basis because, aside from being such a classic option, they were SO comfortable.
Leave me a comment below (in the comments section) telling me which are your two favourite options and help me decide which styles to purchase.
