I bought 3 new pairs of shoes Saturday - I was looking for the New Balance 3090 to replace mine that are so worn (love love love them).
I had went to the mall Friday and they had an updated pair which are now called the 4090 but felt more stiff than mine.
The sales guy had a pair of 3090 but not the same style (I guess the inbetween style??)
I knew National Sports an hour from here has a back room that sells "older" styles - so held off.
I ended up with my 3090s (different color scheme) , New Balance all terrain shoe which I just wore for the first time today , and a pair of Puma shoes that just felt really good on.
I've ran a few times this week in the 3090 to break them in- and today the all terrain. Wow.
The field and trails are too snowy and I brought the dog , so it was a jog and trying not to break thru the snow. After I synced my run thru nike + I noticed I was 300 meters away from passing another so I road ran a half mile to pass his distance. The all terrain was so light and my foot just rolled so naturally with each step. Looking forward to another run in these when it isn't minus 20 out!
