Meet my new kicks: Nike Air Zoom Mariah

Nike Air Zoom Mariah

Hello cuties! How has your week been so far? 🙂 If you’re following me for a while already, you might know that my relationship with sneakers hasn’t always been that good. For the longest time, especially during my law career, I didn’t own any cool sneakers besides my worn out tennis shoes. When I left law behind and  continued my career path following my dreams, my relationship with sneakers went from being pretty much non-existing to an obsession to say the least. I have to admit that I’m nowadays always on the hunt for new sneakers to add to my collection and I really enjoy the easy-going, laid-back vibe a good sneaker gives to your look. Like you’re one of those girls who’s always running late but still looking put together. You know what I mean?! 🙂 The sneakers I’m wearing in today’s post are the new Nike Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racers. If you’re a fan of Nike, you might know that every summer they bring back a number of different takes on the iconic Nike Air Mariah sneaker. This year however, they did it slightly different thanks to the launch of their Nike Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racer. The new silhouette pays tribute to the legendary Nike Air Mariah of the 80s and adds today’s Zoom Air cushioning to the midsole for a more comfortable feel than ever. FYI: as a so-called sneaker head I have to say that this feature makes them one of the most comfortable sneakers I have ever owned. Yup, even not joking, it’s almost like you aren’t wearing any shoes. Besides that Nike added a new slip-on construction to the iconic shoe, thinner laces, and a slightly higher ankle collar for a 2017-take that’s still rooted in the success of the legendary racer. What do you think of the look of the sneaker? And what do you think of the way I’ve styled it?

let me know!

My name is Frederique and I run this personal style blog. After graduating from law school in April 2014 – University of Utrecht (The Netherlands), exchange: Uppsala (Sweden) and UC Berkeley (USA) – I built FAB le Frique from scratch and decided to spread my lifelong interest in fashion and lifestyle with the world (wide web). Taking a leap of faith, making a career transition, leaving a known and charted career path is scary. But if the only actual obstacle blocking me from doing what I’m truly passionate about is ‘fear’, I hereby conquer my fears and go forward with my passion.
