New Balance 890v4 Running Shoes {Holiday Gift Idea}


Around six weeks postpartum I remember popping my Jillian Michaels, 30 Day Shred DVD into my DVD player and exercising for the first time in a while. That first intense workout felt good! I was sore the next day but my body was ready for exercise and I was determined to get in shape again.

I continued exercising at home with my DVDs and after a few more months ended up hiring a friend of mine who does personal training to do some exercise sessions with my husband and I three times a week. She is a serious athlete and her one hour bootcamp style classes meant business. We went to see her three times a week every week for about 5 months until a few months ago when she took some time off to travel. It meant I had to continue my exercise routine on my own and I decided to get back into running.

Nowadays I try to squeeze in at least 3 days of running and I go to Zumba classes twice a week. I am trying to be as active as possible because I want to be healthy for my little boys and feel good at the same time.

I recently received the New Balance 890v4 Running Shoes to try. I must say that the difference between shoes designed for running and regular sports shoes is huge! I didn’t know it until I had a chance to run with my new shoes. The 890v4 are light, breathable shoes, that absorb shock and cushion your feet, they are incredibly light and so so comfortable.  I am totally in love and they are my go-to running shoes now.

The New Balance 890v4 features:

  • ABZORB® crash pad cradles the heel area medially and laterally for additional stability
  • Blown rubber outsole
  • No-sew material application
  • REVlite midsole foam
  • Unique podular structure maintains notion of full ground contact geometries, preserving the purity of the originally coveted 890 ride
  • Updated to outperform its predecessors, the 890v4 is lighter than ever with no loss of durability or cushioning. Looking to build speed in your daily runs? This award-winning shoe has what you need to get it done.

A pair of New Balance 890v4 Running Shoes retail for $139.99. These would make a fabulous gift to any runners in your gift list or anybody wanting to start a regular exercise routine. Highly recommended!!
