    Expert Product Review: New Balance 890v3 Running Shoe

    The team at SwimOutlet.com and RunOutlet.com will be running in The Color Run 5k San Jose this month, so we thought we’d try out a pair of colorful running shoes as training gets underway this week!

    The growing popularity of lightweight running shoes has been building for the past several years, but what seemed to be primarily a fashion-driven movement done for looks and style has very much become a functional development as some of the best running brands have entered into the category with terrific designs.

    A few of the brands that focus on running technology have been putting a greater emphasis on making these lightweight shoes into terrific running shoes by their own accounts – not just resting on the laurels of the low-profile silhouette itself.

    The New Balance 890v3 very much falls into this category: a good-looking, lightweight shoe that still doubles as a terrific runner. At 9.55 oz, it’s roughly 25% lighter than New Balance’s classic 990v3 design – so it checks the lightweight test.

    Running in our Backyard

     Hello SwimOutlet fans!

    You may have noticed over the past few months, that SwimOutlet.com has been increasing its product selection beyond swimming to include runningyoga and surf gear, too. So we’ll have some non-swimming posts from time-to-time. 

    We’re building up a running culture here and this weekend a bunch of staffers ran in the popular 408k Race to the Row in San Jose.

    Congrats to the participants!

    Asics was nice enough to send us a few pairs of the new GEL-Kayano 19 that just hit our inventory to try out for the race – and we took them for a test run out back of our office along the Guadalupe River Trail. 

    Having a trail behind our office is a big perk of being at SwimOutlet.com. The Guadalupe River Trail runs 11 miles from downtown San Jose to the southern most point of San Francisco Bay. It’s flat and has both gravel and paved sections, making it a perfect spot to try out the new Asics.
