So I recently hopped on Nike ID and designed a new pair of sneakers for myself. They were shipped this past week and are currently in Anchorage, AK. I had a little bit of buyer's remorse at some point because I did not spend as much effort into designing these as I did my last pair...which involved voting on this same blog. Granted, I spent days and weeks stressing over the last pair, so nto spending as much time on this pair of shoes was probably healthy for me.
I wonder how these will turn out. Each time I look at this design I have a different opinion. Sometimes I think they look pretty damn cool, sometimes I think someone in China might be laughing at this silly American. Take a look at the UPS tracking. Pretty amazing to see how far my shoes have run already (China, Hong Kong, Korea, Alaska).
In related news, I just completed 6 weeks of back to back travel (except for Thanksgiving) for my job. At this point, I will be settling into a steady and manageable pattern moving forward with no more travel until January. The last 2 months have been busy...and these sneakers are not the only well traveled pair of shoes that I own at this point - I just hit Platinum status on Continental this past month.
