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.

Nike Stores Launch Twitter RSVP

Ever gone in for a pair of fresh new Nikes and come out with a fresh pair of black eyes?

We feel your pain.

Mobs of anxious Nike enthusiasts waiting in line for days to get their feet into the newest release from the athletic shoe gurus aren’t going to play nice when those doors open up and that burst of fresh leather and plastic hits their faces. Oh no, they won’t play nice at all.

In an effort to make the experience of landing your fresh pair of sneaks a more enjoyable one, Nike has made it possible for you to reserve a pair via Twitter. Yes, Twitter.

Nike has set up designated “RSVP Dates” on which they will Tweet a hashtagged term relating to the shoe that is being released. Nike’s followers then have one hour to direct message the store with the hashtag, last four digits of their State/Passport/Military/School ID number, and shoe size. A successful Nike shoe reservation will be confirmed by a direct message from Nike to the follower. All that’s left is to snag your sneaks from the store. Done and done.

Check out more info on Nike’s Twitter RSVP here.

What do you guys think? Good idea, or is Nike just getting sneaky (Ha! Because they sell sneakers…get it?) about building their Twitter following?

Would you use Nike’s Twitter RSVP?
