New Balance Shoe Giveaway! 890's

OnlineShoes.com sent me a pair of New Balance 890's to review andddddddd get this . . . . . . they are also going to give a pair to one of YOU!

I have worn New Balance running shoes before.  OnlineShoes.com offers over 325 New Balance items for Women and over 315 for men.  They also offer sizing for the whole family too! [girls' & boys']

I have been wearing these shoes everywhere for the last few weeks.

I know.  I know.

Running shoes are for running.

But . . .

When I test something out, I figure they need to truly BE put to the test.

For example:

Can they hold their own at the Costco pump? check

Can they help me carry a 9 pound ham to my car? check

Can they withstand my 94 minutes [a week] I make myself strength train & stretch? check

Can they help me get Peanut to school?  check

Can they help me not to speed in my car? [when I'm the carpool mom....]check

Can they make it through a 21+ mile run on the Treadmill?  check

Can they make the crusty old racquetball guy NOT change his shirt in the middle of the gym? dang... no

Overall I can tell you, honestly, that my feet are in heaven in these shoes.

Added bonus is that they come in like 87 different colors.  Okay, 21, actual colors.  It's the little [choices] things in life, right?

Peanut actually chose mine.  I get comments on them 7.44 out of every 10 places I go.  Love the bright spring/summer color.  L o v e.

They only weigh 7.2 oz which means you aren’t carrying as much weight around as you would with a normal running shoe which for me = more energy used towards speed [I need every freaking ounce I can get.]!

Giveaway will end on April 23rd, 2012.

To enter giveaway, tell me in the comments why you want a new pair of New Balance 890's or you can tell me what your favorite distance would be to run in them.

I would love to try a pair - especially after reading how much everyone loves these shoes. Have been walking for the last few months and I am trying to get into running but am having trouble finding shoes that keep the leg pain in check. Need something comfortable that will hold up for the long haul as I push myself each day. The 23rd is my b'day - these would be an awesome present!

Thanks for sharing!

I would love to win a pair of New Balance shoes because I am running my first Half this summer and couldn't be more excited.

Lala Mama said...

I love New Balance shoes so it would be awesome to win this colourful pair - can't wait to see what colours are available!!

My favourite distance?...well, of course the LONGER the distance the better. Right now I can only run 10-11k, which was my goal distance for 2012. If I win these shoes I'm gonna train and run a half marathon this year in 2012!!!! Thanks for the giveaway!

I would love to try these shoes. I've been looking for a new pair to love since they changed my Asics. I'd use them to dominate 13.1!

Thanks for the excellent review and giveaway!

Obviously, I'd love to run a marathon in a pair of New Balance 890s.. Especially free ones.! I think we runners are all a little addicted to shoes.

I would love to get these shoes because I've been running in my current pair of NB 870 for the last year and a half. I love the marathon distance and I know the 890s will help me get a PR. Also, I'm unemployed and anything free at this point is super awesome!
