Best Kept Shoe Secret

IMG_4767

True life, I hate paying more than $60 for running shoes! I wear them almost everyday for walking the dog, running errands, yard work and of course working out, but I just hate paying so much for them. They really take a beating and I need to buy new ones pretty frequently.

This is why 6pm has been such a lifesaver! I can order shoes for literally so cheap!

I was running a race a while ago and noticed that my knees and shins were starting to hurt, so I figured I would bite the bullet and finally get expensive running shoes. I went to Boulder Running Company and they helped me out so much by getting me proper fitting running shoes. $120 later I was running my heart out and feeling great.

Then about 6 months later I needed new running shoes again and went to 6pm. I found those same $120 running shoes for a fraction of the price. I scooped them up quick and a second pair as well. I highly recommend checking out 6pm for athletic shoes next time you need a new pair.

Athleta Review

I have been a die hard Lululemon fan for years. Convinced that there were no other leggings and work out gear that would match Lulu’s quality, so I wouldn’t even consider other brands. Then I got an Athleta gift card.

I received a $50 gift card and thought that I would for sure be able to find some things especially on sale. Well I was quickly proven wrong when I noticed that their price point is right in line with Lululemon which was surprising from a brand that is connected with Old Navy and the Gap.

I was able to find this t-shirt and leggings. They were having a sale so I received an extra 20% off of sale price which brought this entire outfit to right around $60.

As far as the leggings go, I need high waisted which these are. I noticed that as I was doing more jumping around or burpees that they did tend to fall down and I had to adjust them a lot. I did however like that that whatever material they are made out of does not attract dog hair which was a plus. I highly recommend sizing down in these. I bought a small and I am usually a medium or 6.

The shirt is really nice. The material is soft and long enough to slightly cover your back side. I also bought a small in this one.

All in all I was not blown away with Athleta and would honestly probably stick with Lululemon, especially since Athleta’s price point is the same. Had Athleta came in with a lower price point I would probably convert.
