New Balance recently sent me a pair of their Fresh Foam 980s to try out. Thanks to the Polar Vortex, they’ve been tested more on the treadmill than outside.

Oh hai.

These shoes are cushy. Noticeably. According to their web site, they offer a more natural drop with a plush ride, both things you can definitely feel. So far, I’m a fan.

The shoes will be available starting Saturday, February 15, but you can get a sneak peek on Wednesday! Join New Balance (and me!) at Fleet Feet in Old Town at 6:30 for a fun run, food, cocktails, giveaways and a Twitter Q&A with the shoe designers. You can RSVP on the Fleet Feet site, or check out the FB invite.
