Price goes up Quality goes down
on September 8, 2013
I have been an exclusive NB runner for more than 30 years. Loved every pair I had until about 5 years ago. The 1012's were the last good NB I owned. From then on the quality and durability has steadily declined and the price has gone up. The 1013's seem to be the latest motion control shoe. I find that it wears out at about 150-200 miles. Shoes in the past lasted a lot more miles and were better quality. I am afraid NB has gone the corporate route of selling inferior quality product for a higher profit. After more than 30 years of a avid customer for the first time I am looking for another shoe.
