Behind-the-Scenes: Testing Adidas New Springblade Sneakers

“It was so much fun playing guinea pig last week when I tested Adidas’s Springblade sneakers (available on adidas.com starting August 1). The company sent me a pair in neon pink so I could try out the shoe’s new “blade technology,” which uses 16 blades on the soles to spring your movement forward. Together with InStyle.com’s photographer Alex Reside, we went to Rockefeller Center to pound the pavement for a Friday afternoon impromptu photo shoot. Alex made me run in circles around him for 30 minutes just to get the right shot. But it was worth it! By the end, we amassed a mini crowd (so I showed off my new kicks to a bunch of New York tourists) and he took some fun action shots. As for the shoes? They felt as cool as they looked.”

Behind-the-Scenes: Indoor Surfing With Market Editor Sarah Conly
"I was bitten by the surfing bug after seeing Blue Crush. But when I got on the board, I quickly realized I was no Kate Bosworth. Enter Surfset Fitness, an indoor class that simulates the effects of surfing using a stability surf board with all the effects of getting a long, lean surfer physique without embarrassing myself and getting my hair wet. Nautica invited a group of New York editors to test it out, so we got on our wobbly boards and tried out some of the class’s signature moves, like the shark kick, frog hop, wave runner, mermaid stretch and for the really brave, the crow, a yogi-like half headstand on a board. The next day I was sore in all the right places, especially my core and legs. I’m hooked! This is my new summer workout.”
