When it was time to put myself, literally, in my own tennis shoes

Bienvenidos de regreso!

En este post les voy a mencionar dos cosas importantes de mí que pueden observar en las fotos.
La primera: mi amor interminable por Londres, de verdad he llegado a pensar que si fuera legal casarse con ciudades la escogería a ella. He tenido la oportunidad de vivir en la capital inglesa en dos ocasiones y NUNCA me quiero regresar, siempre siento que me falta tiempo para disfrutar la ciudad. Tengo que resaltar en que, a pesar de que todo Londres me fascina, definitivamente Tower Bridge es mi lugar favorito. Puedo pasar horas y horas deleitándome con la vista. Es un sentimiento indescriptible, sólo de acordarme me pongo chinita.

Segundo: los tennis. Aunque parezca increíble, es la primera vez en años que compro y uso unos tennis para algo que no sea hacer ejercicio. Siempre que salgo de viaje con mi papá es de ley que me vea de pies a cabeza antes de empezar la turisteada intensa (aja porque con él se empieza a conocer a las 9 am sin parar hasta que se meta el sol) y haga el comentario de “NO ENTIENDO POR QUÉ NO USAS TENNIS PARA TURISTEAR, AHORA TE AGUANTAS”. Y vaya que me aguanto, he tenido momentos en que de verdad ya no puedo mover los pies y logro seguir repitiendo mi mantra familiar “Tú puedes más que el zapato, el zapato no puede más que tú”.

Tengo una anécdota que ilustra a la perfección la situación. Hace 5 años fui a Los Ángeles con mi papá, después de muchos intentos lo convencí de dejar sus tennis Nike en el cuarto y usar unos Sperrys que nos compramos iguales, ya saben típico matching outfit papá-hija. ERROR garrafal estrenar zapatos para caminar sin parar, nunca lo hagan. Desde las 11:00 am ya no podía más, literal les estoy hablando de hasta un poco de sangre, pero obviamente no dije nada porque ya sabía la respuesta que iba a obtener de mis quejas. A las 6 pm nos sentamos a comer en Santa Mónica, cosa que mis pies agradecieron eternamente. Como el día estaba por acabarse consideré que era buen momento para compartirle a mi papá el sufrimiento de mis pies por los Sperrys, al momento en que le dije se atacó de risa porque evidentemente él estaba igual que yo. Pero como les expliqué, mi familia realmente se apega al mantra de “el zapato no puede más que tú”.

Además de ser ultra cómodos, los tennis le dan un toque casual pero buena onda a cualquier look. Me tardé mucho tiempo en apreciarlos pero ahora ya no me los quiero quitar nunca!
Espero que se hayan reído con la historia y que disfruten las fotos.

Welcome back everyone, I´m glad to have you around again! In this post I will tell you two important things about me that you will be able to see in the pictures.

First, my never-ending love for London. I have seriously thought about getting married with this city if the Law allowed it. I have had the opportunity of living in the English capital twice, and I never ever want to head back home. I always feel that I need more time to enjoy the city, things to do, food to eat, beers and siders to drink, markets to visit, clothes to shop, clubs to party, and the list could go on and on. Regardless the fact that I love every corner of this city, my favourite place of all is Tower Bridge. I can spend hours and hours just looking at it and never getting bored of doing so.

Second: my tennis shoes. Believe it or not, it´s the first time in years that I buy and actually use tennis shoes for something else than working out. Every time I travel abroad with my dad he complaints about my election of shoes to walk (which were never tennis shoes) because he LOVES to start being a tourist from dawn till dusk. He always says “I CANT UNDERSTAND WHY DON´T YOU WEAR TENNIS SHOES INSTEAD OF FLATS TO WALK, NOW BEAR WITH IT”. Which I did every time, there were moments when I really could not walk and move my feet anymore, but I did it repeating our family mantra for this cases “I´m stronger than the shoes, shoes are not stronger than me”.

I have a brief story that can help me illustrate this situation. Five years ago I went with my dad to LA, after many attempts I finally brought my dad around to stop wearing his classic Dad Nikes and to use a pair of Sperrys that we bought together. I loved the idea of having a dad-daughter-matching-outfit. This was one of the mistakes I really REALLY regret. Please never ever wear new shoes to walk without stopping for hours. It was only 11:00 am and I couldn’t move anymore (there was even a bit of blood involved), but obviously I kept my mouth shut because I knew what my dad was going to reply to my complaints (which was “wear tennis shoes”). We sat down to eat in Santa Monica around 6:00 pm, so I considered it was time to share with my dad my feet´s suffering caused by the Sperrys. When I told him he burst into laughter because couldn’t walk anymore either, but as I told you, our familiar mantra of being stronger than the shoe is really important for us.

Besides being super comfortable, tennis shoes give a casual-cool twist to any look. It really took a while for me to understand and appreciate the beauty of tennis shoes, now I cannot imagine myself without them!

I hope you laughed with the story! Enjoy the pictures and see you soon!
