New Shoes - Made in USA
My tennis shoes have finally degraded to a point that I can't wear them off of the homestead without embarrassing the wife. Something about being able to see my feet when they're on...... So it was time to get some new shoes. In keeping with the "try and find American made things" i gave a half-hearted search on google for american made running shoes. Surprisingly enough, they actually exist. I had heard of New Balance a few years ago but thought they just made walking shoes for senior citizens. Turns out they make a whole line of shoes, both within the USA and overseas. Before buying you need to check and find out what models are made here. These are NewBalance model MR990v3 (Men's Running 990 version 3). Yup, look like shoes. We'll see how they hold up.
