Dad’s Log: Same Feet – New Balance 890 ~ Giveaway *CLOSED*

63 Flares 63 Flares ×

So… a big step for me (pun intended):  A review post.  Somehow I was able to get away with not doing one.  For good reason.  Most of the reviews have been… well, for girls or babies!  Another reason: my critical eye, great taste, and high standards… I did marry my DW, after all!  What sponsor would want to undergo my scrutiny?

First… a confession.  I am particular with my feet.  I’ve had them all my life.  Maybe they look a bit Hobbit-ish but, we have been through a lot.  We have done 10k’s, play basketball, hiked Mt. Washington, and most importantly… achieved a 3rd degree black belt in Tang Soo Do.  They have given me a lot, and I treat them the best I can.  So what I put on them has to meet quality control inspector #1 – ME!  By the way…my feet have even survived a pedicure!

So it would take a company with courage to have MKDaddy review a product that would please my dogs!  Fortunately, it’s one of my favorite shoe brands: New Balance. Here we go… the New Balance 890.

4 great colors each for men and women!

Active dads will love this shoe – at a mere 9.65 ounces (men’s 9.5), the New Balance 890 is the lightest shoe of its kind in the neutral cushioning category. Instead of sacrificing cushioning or construction, the New Balance 890 uses a RevLite midsole to give a surprisingly light running experience that is also comfortable for high mileage training.

My first impression was the New Balance 890 are light…deceptively light.  Usually size 12′s tend to be clod-hoppers.  Ever try running with swim fins?? That’s how most athletic shoes feel on my feet.  The lightness of the NB890 made me wary if these shoes would hold my 6’2” frame at 200 lbs.  (how many other bloggers give their vital stats?)

So light, even a baby can carry it!

The next thing that caught my attention was the fit.  I really liked the fit… snug, with give.  Second skin-like.  I tried to get my feet to slide around like in my basketball shoes… but this shoe was not having it. The New Balance 890 hugs my feet perfectly. The technical terminology for this kind of fit… well, New Balance says it best:

a dialed in midfoot wrap, an open and rounded vamp, and comfortable, irritation-free flex points

I am not much for the long distance stuff anymore.  Now, I stick with shorter distances, sprint work, and throw in a little plyometrics.  True to form… these shoes are holding up to the pacing I put them through.  I am looking forward to using them the rest of the summer.

And the little guy – well, he just can’t wait to fill his daddy’s shoes!

Athletic shoes like the New Balance 890 make a great Father’s Day Gift idea!

Buy it: Check out the New Balance 890 - check out this cool video that shows just how light it is! ARV $100.

Win it: One lucky reader will win pair of New Balance 890s (men’s or women’s)

If I’ll be using the shoe for long periods of time, the shoe better be comfy. If it’s a show shoe, comfort doesn’t matter. :-)

When buying sneakers they have to be super comfortable. So many times I try on sneakers that are just heavy or have no cushioning in my heel! Why would I spend a ton of money on something that isn’t comfortable from the start!

Well, my feet are important to me also, but I do take them for granted most days. So, for knocking around, they don’t necessarily get the best… or even mid grade. Barefoot is my all time favorite. BUT!!! When it comes to athletic shoes, the ONLY one I’ll get is New Balance! They simply fit the best, are the most comfortable and last! No other!

ewhatleyJune 15, 2011 - 3:18 pm

For me, the most important thing in any shoe is that is must be lightweight. These sound awesome.

Since there aren’t a lot of places to go unless you’re wearing shoes, fit and comfort are really important to me. If my feet aren’t happy, I’m not happy, and New Balance shoes always come through for me and for DH.

spirit_kimJune 15, 2011 - 7:38 am

I treat my feet pretty well I guess. I do buy new balance and my old grey pair has seen better days. The slight raise of the heel in new balance works for my feet.

I need to treat my feet a lot better! I play tennis every summer, and I always end up stubbing my toes and losing at least one toenail altogether (and the rest of my toes are often black-and-blue). I think a big part of that is that I don’t have good support in my sneakers, so I’d love the chance to upgrade my running shoes for more comfort (and fewer blisters and bruises!).

When it comes to my feet and shoes, I have to be particular. I wear a size 11 and each brand and make feels different. I have to make sure I try on every pair of shoe before I buy it, particularly walking shoes… they have to fir comfortable and be wide enough since I have flat feet

It’s gone now, but I’m so mindful now of good footwear. New Balance were highly recommended for my treatment (that along with hanging my heels over the edge of the steps). Thank you for the lovely giveaway.

How do I treat my feet? Since I am on my feet all day I have to be really good to them. I am reluctant to try new brands of shoes because of the cost.

I have high arches. I need shoes that totally support them.

Once I find a brand I hate to leave it. Although I did have luck recently with Columbia shoes. Now they are added to my brand of choice (skechers).

I don’t do anything special to care for my feet. I wash them daily :) and I try to stay off of them once-in-awhile (I like to keep my feet up so my ankles don’t swell). New Balance is the only brand of walking shoes I’ve purchased for the past 20 years. The deep toe box is more comfortable for my feet than any other brand of athletic shoe I’ve ever worn. Thanks for the giveaway.

EmmyJune 13, 2011 - 11:47 pm

I reward my feet. I choose shoes on fashion and not comfort. So, I treat me feet well at home at the day’s end. Regular pedicures (at home to save money!) with foot soaks, lotions, etc.

I am very picky about my shoes, because I have a high but not strong arch. I usually put orthotic inserts in my shoes to make them more comfortable.

Sylvie WJune 13, 2011 - 9:17 pm

Although I don’t treat my feet in any special fashion, I do make sure I have footwear that fits well. That is nothing worse that footwear that is too tight, rubs, causes blisters, etc . . . These New Balance Sneaks would be a nice home for my feet.

I try to be very good to my feet as I can by keeping them moisturized and using a pumice stone! But the one thing my feet will not tolerate is uncomfortable shoes (no matter HOW good they may LOOK!) And finding comfortable athletic shoes seems to a problem. They’re either too tight, too heavy, or uncomfortable in some other way! So I basically gave up looking for new ones. But now my old ones are so worn, I’m embarrassed to even wear them in my own home! LOL! So I’m hoping that THESE will be the ones I have been looking for!

We have a history of foot problems, so I always try to buy only shoes with good support. Lightweight shoes are important to me, as well as good construction. I don’t like spending on shoes that don’t last very long! My simple rule on buying…if it hurts, pinches, or generally is uncomfortable…I leave it in the store!

Great review. Yeah for hubby getting in on the action.

I have some new balance shoes for myself and little T Rex had a pair a couple sizes ago. They are in safe keeping for his little sis. She’s already wearing his shoe hand-me-downs and does not seem to care if they are boyish. At least not yet anyway.

I am fanatical about my feet. I have NO calluses. Nope – not one. And I was a ballet dancer for 15 years. I rarely wear heels and mostly wear my clogs for work and sneakers/running shoes around town. I also have a pair of my nephew’s hand-me-down Vans that I love. Plus, I put cream on them every night and massage areas that might be susceptible to break down.

I pretty much always wear hiking boots because I pretty much live outside. When my feet cant handle it anymore or I need running shoes I wear New Balance 574′s (recently switched from Reebok Classics) and just feel in love with the way New Balance fit me. I should probably wear them more often because my knees hurt less after wearing them for extended periods of time instead of my boots.

I wear flip flops, uggs and nike running shoes. I mainly wear cowboy boots!!

Carol GJune 9, 2011 - 10:54 am

The shoe is the heart of the foot. A miserable foot makes life like an armpit. I started speed walking with a little jog thrown in. The proper shoe gives balance and comfort for this. Growing older, exercise is needed and I want the best shoe possible to make it more enjoyable.

I have a tendency to go for casual stylish shoes rather then something to better support my feet. My shoes are usually pretty cheap cause I lack the funds for something good.I would love to treat my feet to comfort so I can run and chase my kids outside or go jogging with a friend.

The shoe definitely matters to me but, so does price! I know you pay for quality but, some people just don’t have that budget so my feet get the moderately priced shoe :)
Melanie B recently posted..Amazing Giveaways!

Anna-BananaJune 9, 2011 - 3:25 am

We are very aware of a choice of shoes (both my DH and I) because a good pair of shoes makes the whole body feel aligned and just basically feel good and energized. I’d rather spend more on a good pair than less on a cheap pair.

Thanks for the entries.
