Got some new kicks in the mail today. They are New Balance Minimus WT20SB. I ordered them because they were on sale on New Balance’s website, and I’ve been circling like a vulture waiting for the price to come down. The only thing that’s held me back so far are the fu-uu-ugly colors. Seriously shoe makers, why do women’s athletic shoes have to come in nothing but various shades of pink, lavender and teal? Gag me with a spoon.
So when I spotted the beautiful black models above (on sale! a bargain!) I was all over it. When they arrived today I discovered that these are the waterproof winter models. I’ve heard that these existed but never been able to find them. So basically, I ordered just what I’ve always wanted completely by accident.
That’s me, stumbling into providence.
I wore them tonight for my workout and I love them. Super light and low to the ground – and on sale!
