I don’t wear them for style, or to make a fashion statement. I don’t worry if they don’t match the run apparel I wear. I don’t really care if you think they’re too orange for your comfort.
These shoes were made for running. And that’s what they and I do.
I love running in my New Balance 902’s. With them, I don’t worry about my feet – I just put them on, start running until I can, or the finish line, whichever comes first. They’re light, available in wide-toe configuration to give my feet a generous amount of breathing room, and soft on the heels and feet. The N-Lock system (the big N is not just a logo) and the laces make sure the fit is always constant – and they’ve never come undone for me – yet.
I got them on sale at Planet Sports, and last time I checked New Balance Festival Mall, they were on sale at 50% off. If I had the money then, I would have bought a second pair purely for keeping in my office so I don’t have to lug my shoes around. And maybe another one for races…
If you’re thinking about getting really nice running shoes, and not really squeamish about its screaming orange color, get a pair of these. They’re another reason to love running.
**Shameless plug: I’m thinking of running the New Balance race in Clark Air Base. It’s a 10K race on November 15 at 5:30 in the morning. I’ll try to train hard and focus on longer distances for this race and hopefully, I finish with a decent time. Wish me luck!
