NEW BALANCE LIFESTYLE Class of 420 ROYER /890 Running Shoes

In Our Inbox...

New lifestyle sneakers from New Balance take a page from the vintage ---a refreshed 420 ROYER that originally was developed in the 80's for American university athletic teams...four color waves---and made in the UK for Europeans who can't get enough of what's been cool on the other side of the Pond.




















New kickers for runners---that follow the trend towards minimalist construction. The 890 with REVlite technology (foam midsole...lighter but with some cushioning...like in the middle of the tongue part instead of the whole thing---to save weight. And a seamless interior to reduce friction-apparently inspired by flatseam/seamless performance wear.

Plus we like the fat flat style laces---like our running flats. About $99.95 online all over.
