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**

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.

Extra entry: Tweet or Facebook about giveaway and tell me that you did in a separate comment.

Great giveaway, those shoes are awesome, love the yellow. I need a new pair of shoes because by the end of April I will have run three half marathons and a 10k in four weeks and the final mileage tally on my shoes will be around 400...time to replace them with some new yellow kicks!

~K~ said...

I want a new pair of New Balance 890's b/c I don't even have an old pair of 'em! I need to try these! And i LOVE the color of yours! Too cute! runner_girl5k at yahoo dot com

Liz said...

I want a pair to wear EVERYWHERE! They look super comfy and I love the color - so happy :)

TriMOEngr said...

I've had NB shoes before that were great. I'm running in Asics right now, but they aren't nearly that pretty so I'd be stoked to try a pair out. Also could use a pair for my boy (and his ever growing feet)! Be a tough choice on who would get the shoes. He and his dad are both NB devotees.

bobbi said...

I want them because they come in such awesome COLORS!

abbi said...

Love the color! I'd love to try a pair because I've actually never tried New Balance for running!

Midwest Miler said...

I would like a pair, bc I want to try a new brand, but am afraid to spend the $$$ and be disappointed. These look great!

Sarah said...

I want a pair because I already have 890s and I love them, and I need a new color. I would get the most obnoxious, I mean awesome, color available and wear them for my next triathlon so they could hold their own against my shocking pink bike shoes.

Taryn said...

I would love a pair...they are awesome colors and look awesome!

ltlindian said...

I love the color of your sneakers! And I totally want a pair because who doesn't love new shoes? And free ones! Also, I would love to try them out without shelling out the $$. :)

ltlindian said...

CautiouslyAudacious said...

NB have always been my fav and usually only running shoe in my closet but I don't replace often enough!! I would LOVE to run my Ironman in November int them!!!

CautiouslyAudacious said...

I just tweeted this!! Fingers crossed....

Jenny @ The Little J-Bird said...

Would love to win a pair of new shoes! I love bright colors too! :)
Thanks for the chance!!

CJ said...

Oooh! I'm about due for a new pair of shoes for marathon (or shhh...maybe 50K) training--worried about ramping up the miles too much in my Kinvaras, but loving the lower-drop shoe, so I don't want to just go back to the Brooks Ghosts.

These sound pretty perfect! And as glam as my "basic black" Kinvaras and Flows are, a little flash of color would give me a kick :)

mabel said...

I woke up this morning and thought to myself that I needed some New Balance Shoes. That is what I wore for my last 400 miles and then I got new shoes which are making my feet hurt (not New Balance). So would love to get these to make my feet happy again :)

Katie Duffy said...

I want a pair because I'm a big fan of the colors, NB has widths, and I want to try that Revlite stuff (7 oz? Yes please).

Katie Duffy said...

Also, I tweeted about the giveaway.

Runners Fuel said...

I'm in desperate need of a new pair of shoes. I haven't bought a new pair in way too long. I want to see if they can handle my cross training, too.

Caroline said...

I have never tried New Balance! would like colorful shoes! right I only have colorful shoe laces!!!

Caroline said...

I retweeted !

Penny said...

I want a to win a pair of the New Balance 980's because that yellow is RAD. I only had one pairof NB and I had to make sure I had ankle socks on or I would get a blister. That was many years ago, I would love to give NB another try. My favorite run would be to give them a try on a 4 mile trail run.

marathonwiner said...

im actually in desperate need of new shoes (shin splints on every run right now are NOT cool), and the fact that these babies can hold up for 21 miles..ON A TREADMILL!? (ok, you get kudos for that too, but still...)
I MUST HAVE THEM!

marathonwiner said...

tweeeeeted about it!!

Leslie said...

I would love to win because I LOVE New Balance shoes. OK, they are the only running shoes I've ever owned but that just makes me loyal!

Christi said...

I would love a pair of NB 890s because I love new shoes! I honestly would probably wear them every where.

Erica said...

great giveaway - thanks for offering it! i would love to run 3 miles in the NBs -- many many times. after working out indoors all winter, i am ready to hit the outdoors again this spring, and what better way to rediscover my outdoor running legs than in a pair of new kicks? hopefully i'll build up the mileage, but a few little 3 milers to get me started would feel amazing!!

Julie said...

I would love these shoes, as I'm having a hard time finding shoes that I like!

Heather @ Just a Colorado Gal said...

I would love them because, aside from how awesome the colors are, I clearly think they need to help me cross the line at my first marathon :)

Darlene said...

I am injured right now but this would be a great present to wear when I can run again. I used to train for Half marathons but now I'll be happy if I can just plain run.

alicooks3 said...

i would love to run a half marathon in these cool shoes... love the colors!

Rachel said...

I would love a pair because I have never run in New Balance shoes before and the colors are super fun! For me, when I feel super cool I and super happy and feel like I can run super fast!

Suz and Allan said...

I'd love to have these New Balance 890's because they come in such fun colors!

Runner Maybe said...

I want them as they would give me an excuse to by 'loud' shoes. I would wear them for my 3-Day 60 mile walk.

Katy said...

I think a color like that would make me zip through my normal 6 mile route super fast!

Chicken said...

I would love love LOVE these shoes because my boss is always getting these crazy bright shoes and acting like he's cooler than me, but if I had THESE, then I'd be the best! Oh, and I wanna run in them too!

EmmyRatcliff said...

I want them! Love the color! Love New Balance! Love you! 3 best reasons I want TRAIN in them for my next Mary! On my knees! I want these shoes!

Christi said...

I shared your contest on facebook also!

Chicken said...

And if I were a tweeter or a FB'er, I would say something like "If I had bright YELLOW kicks, I'd kick it in the morning, I'd kick it in the evening, I'd kick it all over this land." Or maybe even something like "I've got a brand new pair of YELLOW kicks, you've got a brand new key." Something like that.

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

LOVE the color on you! So EMZ!

I would love to run some 5k/10k's in them as I am working on my speed for short distances! If you approve, I'm convinced!

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

Rachelle Wardle said...

Oh I would so love to win these shoes. I love NB!! I would love to win them because I would like to try a lighter (but not completely minalmilist) shoe and these sound perfect!

Rachelle Wardle said...

I fb'd about the giveaway. :)

Cynthia said...

1. They are EMZ approved
2. Sweet colors
3. I want to run 21 plus miles in them too
4. I want 7.44 people to comment on them too
4.44 They are EMZ approved

Aaliyah said...

I am fairly new to running, so I have yet to find that "perfect fit" running shoe. I'd love to try the NB and see if they are the ones! Plus anything with colors that bright is a total WIN in my book!

Madison M. said...

I LOVE the bright colors!! Soo fun and they attract alot of attention! LOVE IT!!.. I need a new pair of running shoes because.. I mean who doesn't want to win a new pair of shoes!! :-) I think it'd also help get me motivated! I've been slacking in the motivation department for a couple weeks now, and I've been doing everything to keep pushing along and I think a new BRIGHT FUN EMZ APPROVED/RECOMMEND Shoe would do the trick!! :-)

PICK ME! PICK ME! :-)

Mandi Runs said...

New shoes... what type of runner doesn't need new shoes!?! I would love to try them out and I love me some COLOR!!! Let's say I want to run 26.2 miles x 11 in them!

Mandi Runs said...

I FBed the giveaway out to my friends :)

earlyamrunner.com said...

LOVE those shoes!!!

pavementrunner said...

I'll answer both questions! 1. I need some colorful shoes. I always see runners in super cool feet decorations and look at my dumpy gray shoes and get sad. Plus, I like ham and if these shoes improve my ham intake, that's a win. 2. I'd run 5 miles in them like crazy. I'd keep them at my desk for lunch runs, which are typically 5 miles, and be the coolest kid in the cubicle. Good luck me!

runodonnell said...

Love the colors!! I am trying for a PR at three distances this year...half marathon, 10K and marathon. Bring on the new shoes!!

Calli said...

I'd love a new pair. My New Balance shoes are about to give out (and my boyfriend hates the now-grey color lol).

pavementrunner said...

alright. just tweeted it out... MAKE MY FEET LOOK PRETTY!

Matthew Smith said...

The reason for me wanting new shoes? Well, isn't that obvious? I want to be as cool as YOU! Plus, all those colors are sweet! Pick me! Pick me!

Gaspegirl said...

What a great giveaway! I want these shoes because 1 - my NB sneakers are getting stinky 2- because the puppy has chewed on the heal of mine but not bad enough to retire them and 3 - because I am training for my very first 10km race this year and I could use the support.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Make it a great day!

Robin said...

I would love to try them out, as I almost always go to a tried and true Nike shoe...it's time for me to search out different options.

Christie said...

The color is fabulous!! I would like to run a marathon in them but I want to run as fast as you :)

Paulette Ference said...

I would love to win these because the colors are fantastic and I haven't worn NB in a long time. My fave distance is the half, so I'd run a half in them.

cathcinggrasshoppers said...

I just want to run!!! New shoes on my feet while coming back from foot surgery will make me so happy :) :)

Keith said...

New Balance were the first shoes I bought when I started running. I went through several pairs, 7x7 series I think, and then the last ones i got just sucked. They were heavy and made me run on my heels somehow. I didn't like them and got a pair of Brooks instead. I would very much like to find out if these New Balance are for me.

Ursleepy said...

I started running (ok, wunning if you must know) last fall. I've run in my same pair of UNcolorful shoes all this time. I need some new kicks for my sticks as I begin training for longer races (for ME) a 10K and then a fall half!
Make my feet pretty! New kicks for my sticks!!!

pensive pumpkin said...

I want the new New Balance 890's because I am freaking Verucka Salt. I want an Oompa Loompa, Daddy! I want one NOW!

Okay, really, April 23 would be perfect because I have two half marathons in the next two months after that and, you know, I'M STILL STRESSING ABOUT WHAT SHOES TO WEAR BECAUSE APPARENTLY I THINK IT MATTERS. I'm sure the shoes would make me fast *cough* and keep me from freaking being last. It would be the difference that makes the difference!!

Ursleepy said...

pensive pumpkin said...

happycorredora.com said...

If I won these sweet shoes, I would love to run half marathons and also some speedier 10ks :)

Running In Boise said...

How far would I run in these? Maybe 13 miles. Why do I want a pair of these? I don't have a pair of yellow shoes. I love the color and I bet they feel awesome on.

Evolving Through Running said...

I want a new pair of New Balance because I need a push off the ledge to finally branch out from Asics. My favorite distance would be 50-miles. Haven't done that distance ... yet, but I've got it on my brain.

Evolving Through Running said...

Tweeted about your giveaway too.

derunningmom said...

I would LOVE to try these shoes out!! I am running Boston on monday and will be in need of a new pari of running shoes post marathon!

Scott and Danielle said...

Oh my goodness!! I would love to win these shoes! I am a newbie at running and am running a 5k soon. I would love to use these shoes to run my first 10k! I've also never had NB shoes but heard they are fantastic and I'd love to try them out.

Di Tri-ing said...

Those are awesome! I've been out of NB shoes for a while, but they are great! Don't know why I changed?!

I need these to be more visible on the road in the pre-dawn hours - gonna have to start running outside again!!

Rose @ Eat, Drink, and Be Meiri said...

Honeybaked ham is pretty much the best thing ever.

Let's see...I want to win because free shoes are the biggest no brainer in the history of no brainers.

i would love a new pair of NB shoes, as the colours are amazing and i would wear them for my upcoming half marathon in june (my 3rd one ever) in vancouver, bc. i'd say training for the 13.1 miles is incentive enough for some fantastic new kicks :)

Christine Ashby said...

I want a pair because shoes in cool colors is my MOTTO! Well, not technically my motto. But it SHOULD be my motto.

Ok, it is now officially my motto.

Officially.

Mr. Z said...

Because San Diego RnR is less than 8 weeks away and a 4 hour finish is only possible for me if I have bright, fast looking shoes.

Robin said...

Hey Emz!
It's a long shot, but I'd LOVE to win the NB 890s because they are described by NB as a "Purposeful Design Exercise."

Hmmmmm.... funny, that's how I describe myself these days as I return to running after 18 months, a lifetime of changes, and a never-ending wish to find my way back...

:)

Robin said...

Kellie's Camera said...

They are cute..and sweet..
make me faster on my feet..
probably make me want to tweet..
about how great they are...
people stare from afar
wish they could have their own pair,
New Balance 880s are cooler than pink hair..
better than chocolate ice cream, three scoops,
sweeter than endless bowls of Fruit Loops.
As you can see, I really hope to win,
if you pick me, you'll be my new best friend! ;)

I've never tried NB running shoes but would love to try something new. The colors are cool. I would use them for a 10 k I have in a few weeks.

runnerontheright said...

This is a fantastic review. I have been running in the same brand for almost a decade, but a sneaker that has inspired you to write such a glowing review has influenced me to take a chance here! The colorful options are a definite breath of fresh air for a serious pair of running kicks. A 21 mile jaunt on the treadmill is definitely a beating, and if you felt good after that they must be solid. The only drawback is the lack of impact on the crusty old racquetball guy, for shame. As for mileage, maybe this could be the sneaker I run my first ultra wearing. Crazier things have happened. Regardless, great post, excellent review!

I would like a pair, I used to wear New Balance (for walking mostly and some running) and loved them. I have a different brand as my current running shoe....it's not the same. New Balance is more comfortable.

Karen said...

I would love to have a new pair of these shoes for my upcoming half marathon next month. Maybe they'll help me conquer the hills a little better this time around. The course was killer! I told myself last year that I would never run this particular race again. And just like a typical runner, I'm back at it again to beat my previous time.

I have the New Balance Minimus (my first NB pair) and love them, so I'm curious as to what the other NB shoes feel like. In a quest to run 1200 miles this year, I'm rocking a lot of 10Ks in the mornings and putting the miles on my existing shoes fast.

I too, love the color of yours. I would love these to try. I'm soul searching about new running sneakers now. Whether to stay in what's tried and true or venture out a little. And I'm ready to start marathon training so 26.2!

Kelleen said...

I would love these since I just started running again after over three years off. New shoes would be a great motivation.

Alisen said...

I would love to have these *free* sneakers! I have been trying to go lighter but I always resort back to these clunky asics ;) I can't argue with something that works but if I don't have to shell out the money I won't feel so guilty!

I need a new pair of shoes and would love to try the NB 890's. Love the colors too!

BellyHaynes said...

I'd like to run between 7 and 10 miles in these kicks. Maybe less but probably not more. :)

SanJuanRunnerGirl said...

I love fun colors!! That is why I need a new pair of NB shoes. :) Not to mention I'd love to kill my first marathon in them.

Julie said...

I'd love to try the New Balance shoes. I like that they're lightweight and the fun colors are an added bonus. Plus, my dad always runs in NB, so maybe they'll work for me, too!

I would run 14 miles in them. Why 14, because the longest I've ever run at one time was 13.5 miles in 1988. I ran that distance in the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics as a member of the regional police academy graduating class 218. Now, nearly 23 years later, and nearing retirement, I would like to run even farther, just to prove to myself that I still can...

My footsie's have been hurting a bit and I could use some Color BLING and new kicks! That alone will inspire some mileage!!

Loya said...

I NEED these for my first race (Nike Woman"s)!

XLMIC said...

I have not tried NB shoes since the 70's ...no lie. I would love to check these puppies out and I would run as far as my little legs would take me :)

Jill said...

I would run a marathon in them. Duh! Oh, maybe I'd run a 50k in them. Yeah, a 50k! :)

Jill said...

I will put the giveaway on my blog :)

Deanna G. said...

I want them because they're pretty and they look super comfy! :)

I would love to try a new pair of sneaks! I'm running Boston and will need a new pair when I finish! I love a good 12-15 mile run.

I would love to run my very first 10K in these shoes. It would be something new with something new! I mean I would run in them before I just go run in them...It would give me a purpose for the shoes and for my run - to look awesome!

Catey said...

I want a pair because it's time for new shoes anyway and I've been debating a change! And I am madly in love with the bright colors.

Susan said...

I am in the market for new shoes as Adidas just came our with their new Glides which don't make my feet happy.
I would use the NB shoes for a Marathon! :-)

Ellen Holley said...

I need these shoes... I'm a C25K-er turned slacker and really need some motivation to get back at it. These bright yellow shoes just might do the trick :-)

Zaneta said...

First of all, I LOVE the colors!!
Second of all, I LOVE running shoes!!
Third of all, I would love running any distance in them! lol ;)

Lisa said...

Those are dang cute! I would love to run my second half marathon in them :) That's in July!

Charis said...

Oh, I'd LOVE a pair of these...I SO need a new pair...and I've never really had a "fun" pair of runners...I'd want something crazy and bright!

amocurrare said...

I would love to rock these shoes:) I'm a New Balance junkie! I have the minimus, as i'm working on more minimal running, but I need something to wear on longer runs right now (my toesies hurt during long runs yet.)

Carrie @ Maine Mom on the Run said...

I would love to try out a pair for some new long run trainers. I love New Balance and the colors are awesome!

Cait said...

I need new running sneaks and I'm a poor law school student!! Plus Im signing up for a race to qualify for Boston!! THanks for the give away!

pumpkinscales said...

I need running shoes so badly! i can't even tell you how many miles I have on mine....not to mention "spinning" miles. Aye! My favorite distance...3 miles right now...but I'm working to increase that! :)

crickalou said...

My current shoes are *almost* dead and I am really looking to branch out and try something new. Living in the New Balance capital (Boston) has made me really want to try them, but I am jobless, so I have put off spending the money on new shoes. I recently had a failed attempt to wear Addidas shoes which left me with bruises on the tops of my feet and ankle pain.

I am gearing up for a half marathon in two weeks but I really want the NB 890's to train for my first full marathon in almost 3 years. I have decided that my 30th year of life is the time to BQ!

my life is so blog said...

I LOVE New Balance shoes!! They're the only brand that fit like a glove on me. If I was to win the 890's I would run them for an upcoming 25k race (my perfect distance)!

I'm just getting back to running after the year from hell, and I'd love to win these to train for my upcoming half marathon! I love the pictures, they made me laugh!

Christine Jensen said...

I would love to win a new pair of New Balance 890s because I have a Ragnar Relay coming up and I am due for some new shoes soon so I can break them in pre-race!
