New Balance is a Mom's Best Bet

Doing some sit ups while wearing my NewBalance 759 shoes

I have always been a fan of NewBalance for their weightless fit and support.  I was a bit weary of ordering a running shoe online without trying them on, since I am usually knee deep in shoes at the store, trying on every pair in my size.  But, I decided to try the popular 759 NewBalance running shoe. 

It's built on the Acteva® Lite midsole with Stability Web® to provide a lightweight, supportive, well-cushioned ride. Perfect for a runner with a neutral gait, this shoe is packed with premium features, but still weighs in under 8.9 ounces.
N-ERGY® in the heel provides NB's most advanced shock absorption and cushioning
ABZORB® cushioning in the forefoot for exceptional shock absorption
ACTEVA™ LITE premium lightweight midsole provides optimal resistance to compression set - 24% lighter than standard foam
ABZORB® Strobel Board runs full length of shoe to maximize shock absorption and comfort
STABILITY WEB® delivers midfoot support and reduces the weight of the shoe
Dual Density Collar uses both a softer density foam against the foot for cushioning, and a firmer density foam for support
N-Durance® rubber compound for maximum outsole durability
Synthetic/Mesh upper provides lightweight comfort and support
Blown Rubber Forefoot for lightweight cushioning
Color: Silver with Dark Pink
Shoe Weight: 249 grams (8.8 oz)
Shoe Last: PL-1
When they arrived, I love the mesh look and attractive red lines on the side. After I laced them u, I walked outside to test them out. I couldn't believe that they not only the right size, but they were quite comfortable. I decided to put them to a more rigorous test and run two miles.  Yes, I was surprised because they felt great after the run, having enough cushion without feeling big or boxy. There was no pressure and these shoes were definitely lightweight.

The overall performance of this shoe made it a Mom's Best Bet!
