This one goes out to the shoes I love… New Balance running shoes
I have become a huge fan of New Balance… In particular the New Balance 759, which is my current shoe. I converted about 3 years ago on an Easter weekend while in Ontario, (on vacation) from the subtle influences of my girlfriend who has been a long time New Balance supporter. I still remember stepping into those 758 (no longer made) and going on an 18k run that day in unworked in shoes. I had no blisters, no pains, aches, nothing ! Obviously made for running ! As the 758 is no longer made by New Balance I recently purchased the 759’s, and was equally impressed !
This model shoe is a Neutral shoe, offering ample support and chushioning. That is one of the things I noticed most, it was like running on a cloud testing them on the treadmill at the running store. The 759 is also a lighter shoe then the 758, researching this figure the shoe is about 1.5 ounces lighter. One thing I did notice was in the NB 758’s my size was a 10, in the NB 759 I bought a 10.5, not sure if the shoe is just designed a little smaller or my foot got larger.. I ran in Nike for years, that was until I discovered the wonder shoes that New Balance produces !!!
Completed my run yesterday.. 8 mile tempo on the treadmaster.. Whomped me by the end of it. Tonight I am heading out for a light 6 miler. Chilly here in Nova Scotia today… -20 with the windchill this morning. Looking forward to spring…
