Some people may know that I've been making more of a conscious effort lately to lead a more active lifestyle. I'd like to think that I'm fairly active anyway considering the lack of spare time I have but I'm trying my best to be even more active. I'm still young and there's no better time to start keeping fit.
Sportswear can be a bit on the pricey side at times but there are so many affordable sportswear retailers out there. One of them, sportsshoes.com, recently got in touch and sent me a couple of items from their Nike range. They specialise in running and fitness clothes/shoes and best of all, they're so affordable! Nike is one of my favourite brands when it comes to sports gear! New year, new sports gear!
First up are these Nike Flex Experience Running Shoes* (£29.99 [RRP: £54.99]) which provide great cushioning and flexibility. The design is perhaps not as great as I imagined when I initially saw it online but they're a great pair of shoes which I have been using indoors on the treadmill. They're so comfortable and a joy to run in. I thought I'd have to break into them a bit but I've had no trouble with them whatsoever. Sizing is spot on.
Next up are these Nike Revolution Running Shoes* (£31.49 [RRP: £44.99]) which I absolutely adore! These are by far the best looking trainers I've owned. The colours work so well together and they look much more expensive than they actually are. These trainers are suitable for beginner runners as they have a cushioned sole for comfort as well as a good grip on the outsole to prevent slipping. These are my outdoor and indoor sports shoes as they're great whatever the weather as well as being super stylish! I'm loving the fluorescent green.
I was also sent these beautiful Nike Tech Thermal Gloves* (£8.99 [RRP: £17.99]) to keep my hands warm this Winter! I went with the Small size which fit my hands perfectly as well as keeping them cosy. The fleece fabric keeps my hands warm whilst keeping off any rain. I love the subtle pink trim which gives it a girly touch without being overbearing. There is also a key pocket in the side of the glove which I think is a simple but genius idea. Often when I run outdoors, I'm left in a dilemma as to where to store my key if I'm not wearing something with pockets. Never mind running though, I would happily wear these gloves to work! They are also compatible with touchscreens for those of you who can't bear to not have access to your smartphones whilst keeping those fingers warm...
Last but not least are these Nike Cushioned Dynamic Arch Anklet Running Socks* (£4.99 [RRP: £6.99]). With sweat wicking fabric and a compression fit design, these are really comfortable to wear and are perfect for running and playing sports. These are the first socks I've owned where there has been a specific right sock and left sock.. I actually used to wear normal socks when working out but ever since having these, I've suddenly realised how much better it is to invest in running socks. I'll have to order a few more pairs!
