Skater Girl

Skaters have a new reason to be happy: Nike 6.0 Womens Dunk Low trainers are stylish and have a low environmental impact. The eco-friendly sneakers are partly made of recycled materials, like rubber sole or laces.
If you plan to wear them to a long session of skating, then this is the right choice; the tongue has perforations for breathability.

Gradient Sneakers from Nike

Nike designers are very inventive and every week they release at least one restyled model from their previous collections. This time it’s Nike Dunk High turn to get a facelift. The new trainers made of nylon have an interesting color combination: different hues of purple and pink are melting to create a gradient effect. The combination of purple, pink, and black comes in contrast with the white outsole.

Versatile sneaker

Reebok has collaborated with Hellz Bellz to create a top-down trainer. These awesome kicks come in black leather with black metal studs and a white sole. Another great feature is that one has the flexibility to wear them as high tops or low tops. Perfect for someone with an on-the-go lifestyle, these Reeboks are available for purchase for approximately $125.

Colorful Nike Air Max 1

The sneakers with a thousand designs: Nike Air Max 1 new restyled sneakers will be released in April. The three new colorful models will make their debut in a couple of months and I bet they will be a hit in the hot season. My personal choice goes to the yellow, grey, and white pair of trainers.

Asics' Onitsuka lover

The ever popular Onitsuka Tiger collection has added a new black & white polka dot sneaker to its Seck HI model. This sneaker mimics a 1970's basketball high top and has been designed primarily for women. It is scheduled to be available this spring. Until then, there's a blue & white polka dot available now for purchase. The Seck HI retail for approximately $80.

Want to add a different experience to your workout?

Are you still keeping your resolution to be fit for 2010? Good and stay on track. However, if you’re looking to add a different experience to your workout, mix it up a bit, here’s a pair of trainers that claim to be a ‘mini gymnasium’. MBT’s or Masai Barefoot Technology, simulate ‘walking in the sand’ while strengthening and toning the legs, stomach, and buttocks. Other benefits are increased circulation and posture. All can be accomplished even when just standing, but walking probably has more of a benefit. MBT’s start at $150.

Hearts for Rebels

Although Saint Valentine it’s history for this year, you can be romantic in any day of your life. According to this philosophy, Adidas has designed the hearted Nizza Mid Sleek model. The shoes are similar to some Converse models: printed canvas upper and rubber sole.
The hearted sneakers will complete your rebel outfit whenever you’re ready to wear it.

Bling-Bling Sneakers from Nike

I’m pretty sure that Nike’s designed the X-Girl Blazers sneakers having in mind the image of a bling-bling; otherwise I can’t understand the desire of releasing silvery trainers covered with hundreds of sparkles. The black twin in this series is a bit more ‘normal’ except the contrasting white sole. Again, I don’t understand what were thinking Nike’s designers, but as the Latin proverb says De gustibus et coloribus non est disputandum (There's no arguing about tastes and colors).

Pink Exotic Croc Sneakers from Nike

The pinkish Exotic Croc sneakers from Nike are causing quite a fuss. They’ve got a childish design, but they are made from top materials. Senioritas will love them, but I doubt that mature women will wear them. So, Nike is targeting a younger market with this new pair of trainers. It’s interesting how Nike’s designers have combined an orange outsole – a very bold color in my opinion - and pink sneakers. The results in not ugly, but it limits the possibility of combining them with numerous outfits.

Tartan Sneakers

I just fell in love with these sneakers when I first saw them. First Round Tartan sneakers from Puma are made of denim, tartan canvas and leather. For me, this combination is smashing because I always liked tartan pattern. I haven’t found an online store that is actually selling them, but I’m patient. When I’ll get them, I’ll wear them with a pair of skinny jeans and a military jacket.

Varnished Leather Sneakers

Nike Air Force 1 High Black and Red Patent Leather trainers are pretty hilarious. I don’t know about others, but I would never wear leather varnished leather sneakers. I also don’t like the white and red or black contrast in this model. It would have been better if the sole was completely black or red. The varnished leather is eye-catching and the contrast just makes things worse.
