I was browsing around J.Crew a month or so ago and was doing my normal routine of quickly scanning the room to see if anything stood out.

I looked to the right.

Then to the left.

And then back to the right.

But as I was looking back to the right, something instantly stood out: this awesome pair of Nike Pegasus shoes.

Upon seeing them I instantly new I wanted them, which is slightly out of character because I’m not the biggest tennis shoe guy. Note: I call all types of athletic shoes “tennis shoes.” It’s an old habit that I don’t really care to break.

The Nike Pegasus is a 30-year old design, that’s been brought back with a little modern flare. They’re comfortable. They’re stylish. And I think you’d really enjoy them.

Granted, please don’t buy this shoe as a “running” shoe. In my book, it’s a fashion shoe. Try not to get them dirty, and wear them to add style to your outfit; once you get them dirty it’s basically the same as wearing a dirty wrinkled dress shirt. And we both know that’s not cool.
