Custom shoe giveaway

Hiiiii 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving Eve! Is anyone else running around cooking for tomorrow? I’m determined to go to Costco at some point today just to watch the insanity. I looooove holiday hustle and bustle (…and we need another $5.99 pumpkin pie, K-ups and box of chia seed pouches). 

Last night, I took an AMAZING spin class with some friends. I wanted to get in some cardio, and while I could easily watch Scandal on the spin bike here at home, my friend said she was going to a spin rave. It was a little later in the evening, so the Pilot would be home, so I decided to go for it.

It rocked my world.

Spin rave

(the instructor passed out glow sticks, necklaces and bracelets)

I’ve had a lot of fun to test out new classes in the Tucson fitness community after existing in my happy resort teaching bubble for so long. I forgot how infectious the energy can be, and the amazing camaraderie from club fitness classes. During spin, the entire group was clapping, screaming and cheering each other on. Even though it killed me in the best way possible -I may have forgotten how hard it is to spin for an hour- it went by quickly because I was having a blast. Another thing I forgot: how tough it is to get a spot for club spin classes. I got there a half hour early and was the last name on the sign up list.

Here’s the song the instructor started off with:


He played a lot of club mixes -which aren’t typically my fave but fit the theme perfectly- and I was surprised by how motivating they were. He followed an RPM style of teaching, emphasizing the beats of the music and altering our cadence with the breaks in each song. It was so much fun, and I was happy I went to check it out. There are a lot of fun fitness events coming up this weekend, so I’m excited to see which ones fit in my schedule (a two-hour Zumbathon on Saturday, a holiday yoga class, lots of awesome options to choose from).

Today, I figured that many of us are getting ready for holiday festivities, so I thought it would be a great day for a giveaway post.


Remember when Ashley designed her own pair of custom Nanos

Ashley s nanos

They came in the mail last week! Aren’t they beautiful??

Designing the shoes online is extremely easy; you just pick the colors you’d like for each component, while a live preview streams the changes as you make them. You can start with an entirely blank slate, or begin with some pre-set designs. Last time I posted about these, a few people asked me what I would have chosen for my shoe style and color combo.

Here ya go 🙂

    I’d definitely customize the ATV19 in pink and yellow 🙂

  2. Melanie on November 29, 2013 at 8:15 am

    This is awesome!
    I would definitely go for some black/pink/blue combo.
    Actually maybe some green!
    Too many choices.

  3. Kirsty on November 29, 2013 at 8:23 am

    I’d definitely be customizing some Nano 3.0s. Pink with violet mesh, customize “Kmac” on the back with some neon green laces..!

  4. Cara on November 29, 2013 at 8:47 am

    I would totally go for a pink/black combo. Love this giveaway!

  5. Cassie on November 29, 2013 at 9:07 am

    Loving your purple/pink combo. I’d probably have some black in there w/ the purple, no pink. too girly!

  6. Katie on November 29, 2013 at 9:11 am

    What an awesome giveaway! Thanks and happy Thanksgiving!

  7. Shanna on November 29, 2013 at 10:04 am

    Yellow, gray, and black!

  8. Liz on November 29, 2013 at 10:06 am

    Ive been playing around on their site designing my own would love them!

  9. PracticingGrace on November 29, 2013 at 10:15 am

    Black and pink. I’ll look so stylish at the gym

  10. Kimberly on November 29, 2013 at 10:23 am

    Love the pink/purple combo. I may just have to copy you and go with that!

  11. Erin on November 29, 2013 at 10:38 am

    I like the black and pink combo

  12. Alexa on November 29, 2013 at 12:03 pm

    I think I would do like a teal and purple combination!

  13. Amanda on November 29, 2013 at 12:23 pm

    I think some neon would definitely be requried for these shoes!

  14. Danielle F. on November 29, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    A custom, amazing looking sneaker? That’s exactly what I need! Being a size 10.5 women is horrible – stores don’t carry half sizes above 9.5 for sneakers no matter the brand, no matter the store which is why I currently have a size 11 which is way too big – I always have to wear like 3 pairs of socks when I wear them but the 10 size is just to small so yeah. With a custom pair of Reebok’s I can choose my actual size sneaker – a 10.5 and then choose the colors and look that I like – I’d probably choose a black/grey and then a color combo – most likely a green color or hot pink or maybe neon yellow. I don’t know – so many options and I won’t know for sure until I go through the entire process.
    Great giveaway!

  15. Danielle Diede on November 29, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    My Favorite color is NEON, so the more bright colors I can get on there the better! I always go for outrageous 🙂

  16. Erin W. on November 29, 2013 at 2:33 pm

    I’d love to have a pair of Nano’s….in the brightest colors possible. Maybe neon yellow and pink.

  17. Lindsay on November 29, 2013 at 4:04 pm

    I would get nanos in teal/purple! Momma needs some new sneaks!! 🙂

  18. sharon on November 29, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    I’ll have to think about the colors. This could be interesting, and fun!

  19. Leah on November 29, 2013 at 6:36 pm

  20. Diana on November 29, 2013 at 7:06 pm

  28. Mia on November 29, 2013 at 11:55 pm

    what fun! i think i would do the nano speeds in red and black.

  29. Kristen M on November 30, 2013 at 12:09 am

    I would get the Speed. I’m overwhelmed by the options but probably would go with a color combo that includes red.

  30. Alexis on November 30, 2013 at 12:15 am

    I would definitely do the Nano 2.0 in charged green and dynamic pink. I’m in desperate need of some new shoes for the HIIT workouts I’ve finally built up the endurance to complete. Fingers crossed!

  31. liz @ on November 30, 2013 at 12:38 am
