RED Hearts: Nike Dunk Lows Rule

RED Hearts are guests posts on I Heart Daily from the authors of RED: Teenage Girls in America Write On What Fires Up Their Lives Today. Today's RED Hearts post is by Lisa Chau, 21, reporting from Ann Arbor, Michigan, who loves her Nike Dunk Lows:

I’m a sucker for shoes. You can find me every other week sprawled in the aisle of DSW, surrounded by boxes and boxes of size sixes with a pained, indecisive look on my face. Oh, the choices! 

I love all types of shoes --  flats, sandals, flip-flops, wedges, boots, and of course, sneakers. But if it was a matter of life and death and I was absolutely forced to choose one pair of shoes to wear for the rest of my life, it would be my flashy gray, yellow and gold Nike Dunk Lows (with pink laces!).

One cool part is that you can customize your own Dunk Lows in any colors you want at But if you’re like me and can’t afford to spend $120 on sneakers, you can easily find them in crazy yet pleasant ready-made color combinations (like the style shown above) in a store like Journeys for half the price.

Sometimes I just rock my comfy Dunk Lows out with a pair of baggy jeans and a worn-out sweatshirt. But usually I pair the shoes with leggings, some oversize sunglasses and my Lady Gaga tee. Best of all, my sweet kicks just so happen to match my sunglasses and over-the-ear headphones. Baller.
