Thumbs Up For New Balance

Hey beautiful readers,

I know, where have I been since writing my 2014 Resolutions and Goals? Well living them, duh ;) Actually a bit has happened…which I will tell you about in due time. But this ain’t no catch up post.

This is about these shoes.



And their fabulousness.

Now, I’ve only worn them say for a few weeks and only for about 10 or so high impact cardio classes but my goodness I already love them. And even though my asics are totally eyeballing me right now whilst I say this, I think they may even be better than my old Asics. Don’t get me wrong, Asics are hot and I love them, but the new compressioning and the way they’ve changed them lately has not been sitting well with my feet- even with orthotics.

But my New Balance well I’ve (touch wood) got no inner muscle/shin pain AT ALL. Like I can even push on them and they don’t hurt. This makes teaching a bazillion BodyStep & BodyAttack classes SO much easier. I’ve even bragged to all my classes about how good they are.

Even better? I got them on sale for half the price I typically pay for my shoes (and even not on sale they were cheaper).

But anyways let me introduce the shoe…


I am wearing the New Balance 890 V3. I will admit the numbers are confusing but after a quick google and a super helpful chat with a lovely man on the New Balance hotline I knew which shoes were going to be right for my neutral feet. Anyways, back to the shoes..

They are quite lightweight, which I’m not use to but honestly haven’t noticed any different except when I pick them up to put them on.

Because the material is a bit lighter they don’t feel as hot and suffocating on my feet…which my feet enjoy ;)

The colour was very iffy for me at the beginning. I expected pink since the picture seemed pink, and whilst my bf assures me they are (ha) they seem more like a red pink crossover. But they are bright and gorgeous so I shall make do, plus they’ve been matching my fluro pink nails I’ve been rocking lately.

Not only has my experience with the shoes been great but the customer service also! My bf had ordered the pair a few weeks before Christmas to ensure they would get here and they did…except it was the wrong shoes haha. After he made a call to NB they were very apologetic and made it their focus to have the shoes shipped out that day and here by Christmas, and they made it 2 days before! The fact that she wasn’t worried about the other pair of shoes shows NB’s want for happy customers.

I can honestly say, I think I’m converted..

  • When was the last time you were converted from your ‘usual’?


I was not paid for this post, I just love spreading great bargains and this is one of them!

    So glad you have found some comfortable shoes! My boyfriend wears New Balance – the minimal MR10 – and he loves them! Wears them for all his Attack, Combat, Pump and (of course) Step classes! I bought a pair of Inov8 lightweight F-Lite’s which I also love for all my Les Mills action!

    At first I thought we would have problems doing exercise classes in minimalist shoes with little to no cushioning, but I have had ZERO pain since I first wore them. No shin splints, no foot cramps like with my heavily padded Asics.

    Happy New Year!

      Oh awesome! Yay! Yeah I think I’m a new balance girl now- well I’m at least not wasting money on asics at the moment anyways ;)
