NB 1064: The Upgrade to the NB 1063
I bought a couple of NB 1063s this year as I have found that this is the perfect shoe for me, given me weight and my running. Never have both pairs failed me, not even a single bit. If I only had the money I would buy a third pair, much like what my running buddy Jet did.
But I guess I have to put that third pair of 1063s on hold – for now.
Apparently, the ingenious folks at New Balance are in the process of improving the 1063. Dubbed as the 1064, this will be released by January 2010. Its main features will be a so-called glove fit and better crash pads. Wow, very useful for long – VERY long, even – running adventures! This will probably hit the Philippines around a month after its release. Too early to tell, but let’s see what happens.
Here’s a picture of the NB 1064 grabbed off somewhere in the web…
And a sneak peek of the new shoe.
I have a feeling it will be expensive, but it will be worth every single peso. But if it’s WAY TOO expensive, then get more the 1063s for the meantime. I’m sure its price will drop down upon release of the 1064. Nevertheless, this is a cushioning shoe worth waiting for. =D
