1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    man... I just spent a bunch more than that at the New Balance store in Buckhead a few months ago. Oh well. I might talk my self into an extra pair though. How long is this offer good for, and can I make the purchase in store.

    Chris,
    Could you comment on the differences between the 991 and the 2001? I'm currently running in the 2001...they're a bit pricey and I'm thinking of switching.

    I used to wear these New Balances. I had two pairs which collectively lasted nearly 4 years. They're great shoes AND they're made in the US, so the high cost is justified by manufacturing costs and not just ridiculous advertising costs (cough, NIKE,cough). They're also very very comfortable, but if I recall, they seemed a bit heavy for running, which I didn't do.

    I think I can speak for us all in thanking you for the special. If only I was in the market for running shoes, I'd snap up a pair.
