Runners Rejoice! Re-Introducing The New Balance 990 Series

Employing ABZORB and ENCAP technology, the New Balance 990 has proven itself as the most popular New Balance series nationwide. While it doesn’t score major points in the fashion category, the New Balance 990 has won over the hearts and feet of runners everywhere. Boasting comfort, durability and a new attitude, the 2012 New Balance 990 is said to be an excellent choice for the larger runner, or runners who have a heavy heel strike. Runners rejoice over the minimal-to-non-existent break-in time, and the fact that the design and ammenities of the shoe change very little with each new version released.

What’s that you say? Still not convinced? Here’s another tick mark for the plus category. New Balance athletic shoes are American made! Take a peek into one of the New Balance factories located in Norridgewock, Maine.

 

An ideal choice for both the marathon-a-month runner and the casually active body alike, the 2012 New Balance 990 may very well be the ugly duckling of running shoes. Not the best looking of the bunch, but definitely has the most heart. Give it a chance and you’ll see how beautiful it is on the inside. Advanced runners, beginners and the like won’t find a better option. Outfitted to make your run (and the hours after) more comfortable than any other running shoe you’ve worn before, the 2012 New Balance 990 series is your key to comfort, quality and dependability.
