Can we discuss how much we’re in love with the neon shoe craze? It’s insane to be honest. I’m not even sure where or how it started, but it’s been amazing how well known brands have joined the bandwagon. By creating product that are not only Fashionably Fit, but enhanced with the latest support technology, everyone from runners to circuit trainers can look fly while working up a sweat.
My go to sneaker this time is New Balance’s Fresh Foam 980. New Balance has come a long way since I was a kid. Going from the brand middle schoolers never wanted on their feet, to the top of the fashion totem pole for all age ranges. In college, I would rock my friends tan suede M373’s to every function possible. It was to a point people thought she had borrowed my shoes, when they’d see her in them. Today, just like years ago, I’m rocking the pink on turquoise like it’s a Birkin.
The ultra-plush cushioning supports my one janky knee on steps, and adds a soft rebound effect when lifting my legs. Which makes sense since production utilized the brilliance of advanced computer technology, with the necessity of human interaction to provide people, specifically runners, the stability and control needed. Plus Fresh Foam 980s lightweight and breathable capabilities prevent excessive sweaty feet.
Fresh Foam 980 is currently available in several color ways for both men and women.
