This past weekend it was time to buy a new pair of shoes again as my current pair of trainers now have over 600 km on them. For the past few years I have been using New Balance 760 and the 769 before that for an everyday trainer.
I have not had any issues with these shoes, they worked for me and fit my feet well. However, this time I went looking for an everyday shoe that was lighter. Since I have had good experiences with my previous pairs of New Balance shoes I decided to go with another New Balance pair.
As you can tell from the picture above I ended up with a pair of the 890. I had tried them on in the store on a previous occasion and decided to give them a try as an everyday shoe. Tonight was my first run in them, an easy 10 km run.
My first impression is a good one as they felt comfortable and noticeably lighter than my previous trainers. We’ll see if my thoughts are still the same after a few hundred kilometers.
Have you tried the New Balance 890? If so, what did you think?
