It’s a Monday Night Special Edition Blog Night!

When it comes to athletic shoes, I admit to being rather picky.  I come by it honestly.  Someone I know got me hooked on quality shoes a long time ago.  :o) 

New Balance makes some of my favorite sport shoes.  I have a pair of slides that I wear around the house.  I have my pair of Country Walks that are my favorite hiking/walking shoes. 

There’s a shoe of theirs that really should have its own legend. It’s the 990, a shoe so special that New Balance made a special pair just for President Obama.

It is partially hand constructed right here in the USA.  Well, not here, here, in Washington, but over there here, in Maine. 

They come in Men's, Women's, and Kid's, so the whole family can get in on the fun.

By the way, there has been no confirmation that Mr. Obama has actually worn the shoes.  But New Balance did have his name put on the soles, so maybe he’ll have them mounted and displayed or something. 

But seriously, if you’re in the market for a running shoe, check them out.  Invest in your feet and invest in yourself. 

Now if you’ll excuse me, I think my Country Walks and I are going to bond over a nice little stroll.
