First things first..I know my review is not gonna say I am a verified purchaser of this shoe, but I will post pictures in my review as proof to back up my claims, I have bought the light blue and black ones at Kohl's. It really baffles me how this shoe even got so many good reviews... Also, I noticed a lot of the bad reviews say they are fake Nikes. But truth be told these are not fake Nike's.. They are real Nike's, but the brand it self is no longer real. I have bought Different Nike shoes from different stores over the past 2 years and the quality has gone down the drain. And another kick in the jewels is that they have even banned using coupons at certain stores for their brand!!! ...seriously Nike? If you don't believe me I will also add, that last summer I had to finally replace my Nike drawstring bag after use for many years. It lasted very long considering it went on 14 mile bike rides every other day for a good 4 years. I went to Sports Authority store to buy a new one and looked at all the Nike draw string bags. They wanted $30 for one, and the quality felt so awful that it felt like it wouldn't even last me 10 bike rides to the beach. I ended up buying a sweet red Under Armour drawstring bag instead that I just love so much and still looks like it's brand new, very high quality for the same price. These shoes are so thin, I remember the tongue of the shoes used to be thick, this is so thin I could rip them with my hands if I tried hard enough. Also I see also other bad reviews say they have had terrible crossbar support for their arches. These DO NOT give you any good arch support at all if you have good arches..these may work if your feet are flatter than Kansas, but I have been running in these 2-3 miles everyday and my arches began hurting so bad I have nearly come to taking them off just to walk back home. And I discovered that the inside arch "support" itself torn off the bottom of the inside of the shoe, and have already noticed tearing around the tongue of the shoe..all from just a couple weeks of running. After this...I am NEVER buying Nike products again. I was even a Nike finatic before. But I will definitely be a Under Armour lover now. Also tip of advice...if a shoe has to be in 100 colors than its probably not good quality anyways...we have to remember that America has been more about qauntity than quality lately. I will no longer be fooled by Nike's brand name.
I like them because they are the 'most natural' store bought mashed potatoes you can get. You have to add your own ingredients though, to it to make them taste better. Of course nothing beats from the scratch made mashed potatoes. But if you are in a hurry, they work fine. I refuse other brands of store bought mashed potatoes because of what is in there. Read the labels - yuk !
I'm not usually a big fan of the scent of roses, but the subtlety of the scent in the witch hazel Is actually very pleasant. I've been using the toner for a few weeks now and I've noticed that it is doing about the same job as a much more expensive brand I was previously using with the added benefit of not drying out my cheeks (I have combination skin and while my nose tends to get oily, any alcohol based products leave dry patches on my cheeks). I am extremely happy with the results I'm seeing and will definitely be replacing my old toner with this one from now on.
