New Balance Fresh Foam Review

I have had the pleasure over the last few years to make friends with the good people at Onlineshoes.com.  Through our partnership my feet have been blessed to test out some amazing shoes.
These New Balance Fresh Foam shoes are AMAZING!!  Check them out HERE.  When they arrived about a month ago I couldn't wait to lace them up.. I didn't think about how it had been raining non-stop for days... My beautiful new shoes took on mud as we tried to side-step the puddle that covered the trail. I realized pretty quickly that these are nor trail shoes or very water resistant.

Since that day I have worn these shoes out countless times running errands and for runs around the neighborhood.  They are light weight, comfortable, fit my foot great which is nice because I have wide feet and they look pretty darn cool. 

These shoes are a Summer style for me, I look forward to wearing these on steaming Summer runs.  The shoes is very breathable and has lots of cushion.  I have purchased 2 tanks and a sweatshirt to match the shoes which shows you how much I love them...I am funny like that.

In regular shoes I wear a 10 wide.. I wear a 10.5 in this shoe and it fits perfect.  I would say it runs very true to size and the toe box is not overly narrow which makes my feet happy.
