Finding the motivation to work out is difficult. There are no doubts there. But the motivation to stay active? That’s even rarer. Maybe you found some new activewear that really inspired you, but after one workout, you realized your sports bra was too tight, your leggings were chafing your thighs and your sneakers would probably never be broken in. And so you gave up. At least you tried, right?
If you really want to maintain that motivation though — and ultimately see the results you want — you need to start with the right pieces. Sneakers are number one, especially if you enjoy any type of cardio, from walking, to running, to HIIT, to dancing. A trusty pair of shoes is important for weightlifters too. So how do you know which kind to get? Well, we have a two-step method. First, we start with a beloved brand. In this case, it’s Nike. Then, we look up what celebrities wear that brand, and see what styles they’re rocking. And voila — there is Hailey Bieber (née Baldwin) in a pair of Nike Free sneakers!
Bieber was recently spotted with husband Justin Bieber in LA. She was rocking a pair of black and white Nike Free Tr8 Trainers, perfecting her outfit with a long-sleeve crop top, blue Patagonia shorts and some must-have accessories — gold jewelry, a Prada backpack and a leopard face mask. The whole look is activewear perfection, but we knew we needed to look into Nike Free sneakers first. We knew they would be much more affordable than a Prada backpack, anyway!
The Nike Free RN 5.0 2020 sneakers we found are an excellent pick for any trained athlete or total beginner. The Black/White/Anthracite version closely resembles Bieber’s pair, and the shoe itself is made to provide a “barefoot-like run” with its unique qualities. It has a stretch-mesh upper featuring Nike’s signature swoosh, and more uniquely, asymmetrical laces. Instead of traveling in a straight line from the ankle to the toes, the laces veer off toward the outside of the instep instead, helping to relieve pressure!
These shoes have a padded tongue and stretchy collar for comfort, and they keep up on the theme on the inside with a soft fabric lining. You’ll also find a removable foam insole in there, sitting above the low-foam density midsole. This lightweight cushioning may help protect your feet, knees and even your back from pain you might experience in lesser sneakers. As for the bottom, you’ll find a Nike Flex rubber outsole to provide traction without hindering the foot’s natural motion. Yet another win!
These sneakers are currently available in five colors. Grab the pair most like Bieber’s or try something more colorful like the Fire Pink if that’s more your taste! Definitely pick the one that speaks most to your personal style, because you’re soon going to be wearing these babies anywhere, everywhere and all the time!
