Nike Air Max Thea Premium in Desert Camo – Review

You do not have any idea of how much I have wanted this pair of shoes for the past two years nor how near and far I went looking for them. No shop had them, no online store, no nothing.

Until Nike decided to bring them back right in time for my birthday and this was my gift from my parents. They are probably my favourite shoes at the time and I love them.


The problem was not finding this style of shoe as much as finding the colour, Desert Came, that everyone loves and it is always the first on to sell out.

If you wear a big size, you might have luck on the Nike site, here, where there are two sizes available. I bought mine on Zalando when they were also on sale, for no reason. I finally got lucky for once.


I was a bit scared before buying them, because reviews on the site said that they were not comfortable. I do not agree with that in the slightest: they are the most comfortable pair of sneakers that I own. In my opinion, you should get half a size up, which is what I did, and they fit perfectly.


They are a pretty costly shoe, €130 on the website, but in my opinion they are totally worth the investment, since you can pair them up with everything.


It isΒ indeed a premium shoe and it feels like it 100%.

Score: 10/10

New Nike running shoes

I finally got a new pair of running shoes. My old ones, which I bought 2 years ago, were the Nike Free Run 5.0 and they did their job, although I have weak ankles and the amount of support they offered was not ideal; but I did not know that at the time.

Running shoes tend to be quite expensive, I have noticed, no matter what brand you get them from. I have also noticed that Adidas is more expensive that Nike, but that is not a problem since I have always preferred the latter.

I bought the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 32 in black and white. I got a size bigger than my normal size, which is 38 EU, and they fit perfectly, so I advise you to get a size bigger or at least half a size. The original price is € 111, but I got them on sale at about € 90 and they are still on sale right now on the website.

I still have to break them in, but I have jogged around the store for a bit and they offer a lot more support for my ankles and they also diminish the impact with the ground, which means a lot less shock going up your feet.

The design is of course great and they did have more colours. I plan on running this summer so I will live in these, but I will try to treat them way better than how I have treated my old ones.
