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.
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
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.]!
