Men’s Style Guide: Nike Free Trainers 5.0 V6

If you’re anything like me you know that seeing the sun is motivation for getting back into shape for beach season. As a group fitness instructor, I go through shoes every few months and it’s about that time to purchase a new pair.

Nike has always been my go to for athletic wear because they always have top of the line clothing and shoes which never cease to disappoint. While browsing their website I saw a pair of trainers that would be a great way to get back into shape.

imageThe “Nike Free Trainer 5.0 V6” is a great shoe inside and out. Starting with the interior, it includes a low-profile Phylite midsole which is durable enough to double as an outsole, a minimal molded sock-liner mimics the curvature of the foot for enhanced support, and an anatomical heel is rounded to roll with the ground.

As for the exterior, it has a lightweight mesh upper with no-sew overlays for support and ventilation, a waffle outsole pistons work with the Phylite midsole to help absorb impact, and a 3/4-length bootie wraps the foot for a seamless fit.

Training shoes are versatile for running, weightlifting, circuit training, sport training, or any other physical activity. I would highly recommend these shoes to anyone looking for a pair that will be durable and protect your feet. These shoes along with more colors can be found online at Nike.com and are retailed at 100 dollars.

Music Festival Season Survival List

coachellaferriswheelSpring marks the beginning of music festival season.  We are gearing up for Coachella kicking off on the weekend of April 10. While music festivals are filled with great music, delicious food and memories that will last a lifetime, it is important to make sure you follow some important tips on how to stay healthy and happy under the festival sun.

There are a few items that are essential to music festival survival- water, sunscreen and comfortable shoes. Bring a water bottle to keep yourself hydrated in the hot weather.  Sunscreen is a must because you will get burned and it will be very uncomfortable for the rest of the week, so just lather up!  Some girl’s try to put their fashion foot forward and wear wedges or heeled booties, but I am assure you, you will regret that decision! There is a lot of walking and a lot of people dancing and jumping to the beat!  Try to avoid open toe shoes to keep those perfectly pedicured nails safe. Another couple of items you may want to bring along are a bandana or scarf to keep from inhaling dust from the dessert.  At night it can be especially windy and you won’t want to be coughing up dust all night long.  There are a few great mobile apps to be sure to download before Coachella weekend.  First start by downloading the Coachella App to have access to Friend Finder, Schedule Sharing and Shuttle Tracking. Those are some of the best features of the app to help make your weekend run a little more smoothly.  If you have VIP tickets it is beneficial to download the application Reserve to book a table at some of the famous pop up restaurants at the festival.  It is worth it to have a plan of which sets are your must see shows and schedule food and bathroom breaks around it to beat the crowd the best you can.

Here’s to our first Coachella update, follow our tips, have fun and stay safe! Comment below or tweet us at #Glamorouspaper!

Floor length skirts are a breezy, comfortable alternative to pants during a warm spring day. Hitting just at the tops of your feet is the perfect length, especially if you want to show off some adorable sandals! To make this look even more effortlessly cool, pair the skirt with a plain tee and knot it just at the waistline. So chic!

Rompers are always in style, but especially during the spring and summer months. They scream casual chic and go with everything from strappy heels, to wedges, to flat sandals. Pick a romper with a cute design or pattern for added edge, and pair it with an oversized tote like this one to balance the short hemline.
