New Balance 60's (tennis shoes)
« on: October 30, 2015, 01:58:39 pm »

Just ordered these. I really like my Lotto Quaranta VIP's, but I seem to rip them up pretty fast. I still plan to use my lotto's on hard courts, since they are so cheap and light. For tournaments though, I might use these NB 60's. I imagine they will be built "better" and I won't need to put insoles in them (like I do with my lottos).

Minimalist shoes > * .. I actually have some normal tennis shoes, they are tanks compared to lotto's and most likely the NB 60's. Will update once I get them.

Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.
