Merry, Merry Christmas to you and yours! Happy New Year! I look forward to sharing lots of great giveaways with you in the new year.
Today’s Wordless Wednesday is a bit wordy.
We did a little Christmas shopping on Monday, together without the kids. So no. You are not seeing things. This is a picture of Grant in a retail store. I admit it is a rare siting.
This is not just any store. This is the New Balance Factory Outlet store in Lawrence, MA. Grant is a running geek – a past marathon runner who is training to run the Boston Marathon in April, 2014. That is if he drops a few pounds. He may be putting in the miles, but at 200 lbs., he has also been putting in the French fries, the pizza, the chocolate etc…etc…. Nevertheless, whether it’s five miles on the road or just a few feet to the fridge, he always runs wearing New Balance sneakers.
We have both been blessed with wide feet and New Balance has wide sizes in every single style. I have a hard time finding wide sneakers in other brands, that’s another reason why I love New Balance sneakers. So, for any wide footed folks in the market for sneakers who haven’t checked out New Balance, they have wonderful styles of running, walking and cross-training sneakers for all types of feet.
Here, at the New Balance outlet, things are deeply discounted – which is perfect when you like to get more for your dollar, or like Grant you are just plain “cheap”. It was Buy One Get One 50% off day and that pretty much applied to everything in the entire store.
Here is the icing on the cake for Grant. These sneakers were made in the USA. He is proudly showing the made in USA label.
So all was right in the world. Grant found a wonderful pair of New Balance Cross Trainers in 4 E extra wide and they are made in the good old USA. According to their website, New Balance is proud to be the only major athletic shoe mfr. to be making shoes in the US today! 25% of their shoes sold in NA are made in the USA. Bravo New Balance!
Did you know that there are still sneakers made in the US?
Will Grant drop the extra weight in time for Marathon Monday 2014? Stay tuned!
