Red and black 993s

I'm a New Balance man. The only sneakers that I wear are New Balances (I started with the 991s, and then the 992's and now the 993's are the new hotness). Since I'm going to be running again (and I think come spring time I might sign up for another 5K, shocking I know) I decided that today was the day to buy a new pair of sneakers.

My current 993's aren't really good for running at this point (I assume since I'm a heavy guy the sneaker cushioning just doesn't last long with all the pounding I give it) so a new pair had to be acquired. I scoped out what City Sports had in stock and I saw the red/black pair above. I was going to nab 'em but they were $140! I was pretty sure I could find 'em for cheaper and Amazon did not let me down. $104 later, I'll have a swanky new pair of running shoes by the end of the week (Amazon Prime wasn't available for this particular pair because Amazon was selling them directly).

Who's excited?

  1. I’m not a huge fan of Zappos (shocking, I know!) though I did check three places:
    1. Amazon
    2. Zappos
    Of course all three of those places are owned by Amazon! Anyway, Amazon had the color combo I wanted and the best price, so they won.
