Before this interview, if anyone had told us that a pair of sneakers could be the key to living well, we’d have called bullsh*t. But after experiencing it for ourselves and debriefing on the topic with Aussie influencers, Bambi Northwood Blyth and Kristy Cross — two women who take healthy living pretty seriously — our opinion has shifted. Our eyes have been opened to the opportunity for wellness that a pair of sneakers really can create.
