My plan for 2014 was to get fitter so I could be ready for the more energetic adventures and travel explorations we have been thinking about for later in the year. So I decided to head over to check out Fresh Foam running shoes by New Balance at Sweatshop.
I got a pair of Fresh Foam 980’s (£90) courtesy of New Balance and Sweatshop. They felt soft but firm to the touch, and when I was walking about in the store with them they provided a good degree of support both on the medial and lateral aspects of the foot. Also the friendly Brad, from the New Balance Technical Team, was on hand to provide the lowdown on the biomechanical advantages of the design and the team behind it. (A very interesting chat as I am a Sports Therapist by day, and food & travel blogger by night!) Very cool design guys! Looking forward to training in them.
Go check out these new guys out, as they do a great selection of training shoes whether you want them for distance walking or running.
