New Balance 574 Shoe Review

If you're new here or just don't pay much attention to my life, hey, I'm Pink Einstein and I have major problems with my feet. Finding a pair of shoes that I can get through the school day in is a hard task. I like cute things and I also feel better mentally when I'm dressed nice and tennis shoes don't really fit into the 'cute things' category. Now, believe it or not, I own more tennis shoes than the average, non athlete does or should but I despise tennis shoes and never wear them. I keep buying all of these different shoes in hopes of finding a pair that I can make it through the day in without being it pain but until now, no luck.

I was out shopping with McCray the other day and we stopped in TJ Maxx because I had heard some rumors on Instagram that they had New Balance shoes on sale for a great price and I needed to check it out. I had been eyeing these shoes for a while but wasn't ready to pay full price for them because I wasn't sure if they would be comfortable and I couldn't decide if they were cute or not. I have decided that they are cute in an ugly kind of way, kind of like my pug. So many people online have been wearing this style of shoe in everyday outfits rather than in a sporty, athletic way and I thought it would be a great way for me to A. please my doctors by wearing tennis shoes more often, B. hopefully be more comfortable, and C. still look cute! When we got to the shoe section I was a little discouraged because we started roaming up and down the shoe aisle and didn't see any of these New Balance shoes. I was starting to think I wasn't going to find a pair just as we started down the last aisle and there was one pair and they were in my size! I tried them on and they were some of the most comfortable tennis shoes I have tried on. I was so happy they fit and were comfy so I started dancing through the store in them, I looked insane!
Now for the real review. You know I'm all about a good deal and I think $39.99 is a steal for these New Balance 574s which are regularly between $74.99-$119.99! I love how comfortable they are, the back and the tongue are cushioned and they are definitely something I can wear all day. Although the arch support (something I need a lot of) isn't the best, I was able to take the New Balance insert out of the shoe and replace it with my custom ones. I love the color combo of the pair that I purchased, the navy and pink go well with so much in my closet and are also my favorite colors so I know I can get a lot of wear out of them. The navy does a good job of hiding dirt (because we all know I'm going to get them dirty sooner or later) and weirdly enough they make your feet look really little. A down side to the shoe which isn't even a big deal is the length of the laces. The laces are so long! I don't understand why but the laces are ridiculously long and they drag the floor if the shoes isn't double knotted. Though, this can be fixed easily by buying shorter laces so it isn't that big of a deal. Overall I love these shoes, I think I found the perfect pair of cute yet comfy tennis shoes at a wonderful price!

Trend Tracking: Western T Shirts

Western and country style has been emerging more within the trendy side of the fashion world recently. Being from Texas, I think it's kind of fun.  Along with bright colored cowboy boots and cow print, you can find many popular fashion influencers wearing western-inspired graphic tees.

Daisy Darling Top

I fell in love with this top as soon as I saw it in The Impeccable Pig. The color, the gingham, and the embroidered daisies are too cute!
