A box of New Balance Kids sneakers showed up on our doorstep the other day. They were in a size 1, the same size as my 7 year old son. I can only assume the shoes came from Mom 2.0 Summit (thanks New Balance folks!)
My son was so excited. It doesn’t take much and apparently he was “really wanting a new pair of sneakers!” He’s also very impressed with his masterful shoe-tying abilities these days so out went the old velco pair and in with the new New Balance pair. This particular pair, the New Balance 860 is designed for grade school runners with plenty of shock absorbtion, support and cushioning.
But here’s the kicker. The tongue of the shoes says “running” so he’s now proclaimed he has special running powers and will be able to go running with me when I go out for a jog. I love it!
The New Balance 860s are normally $44.99 but are currently on sale for $39.99 at NewBalance.com.
