New Balance Makes Great Athletic Shoes
on February 3, 2014
This is approximately my 10th pair of NB trail-running shoes. I buy them in black so I can wear them to work, and get away with not having to change into typical hard shoes - loafers or whatever. I'm expected to wear "business attire" Monday through Thursday, but so far I've been getting away with athletic shoes. I find running shoes so much more comfortable, and New Balance are the best...though I've had a couple pairs of Asics, and they're great too.
This is the first time I've bought them through Amazon (don't know why I didn't think of it before), but it was such a non-hassle way to buy, that I'll probably do it again. The only problem with going to the stores is that it usually takes 2 or 3 trips - they typically either don't have my size in stock on that day, don't have them in black, etc., so I have to keep going back.
Amazon's price was among the lowest I have paid - equal to the infrequent "Super Sale" prices at Sports Authority or Big 5. By the way, I still have most of my old pairs of New Balance. After about a year, they get too old looking to wear to work, but I continue to wear them on the weekend, when I'm doing DIY projects, and so forth.
