Nine-Nine-Ones: Ten Years & Counting

September 9, 2011

In 2001, a year after they were released, I laced up my New Balance nine-nine-ones for the first time.  Now ten years later, they’re still my go-to shoe for all things involving athleticism.  Equipped with the original laces and a set of new insoles, these things have taken a beating but remain steadfast.  New Balance have always maintained a presence outside of their intended use (as mine originally did), but it’s nice to see an appreciation for more than the aesthetics.  With collaborations across the board and fellow comrades documenting their own NB stories, it’s nice to see this New England based brand who has stood by their American workforce for 100+ years get some well deserved recognition.
