My old workout shoes were getting really raggedy, so I was in the market for new ones. I wasn't happy with the selection or prices at Dunham's, so I checked out DSW. Just my luck, they were having an orange tag sale on athletic shoes. These normally retail for about $55-56 dollars, but I got mine on sale for $30.
At first, I wasn't sold on the color- orange isn't my favorite. But fit was more important to me, so I decided to try them on. Once they were on my feet, I was sold. They are incredibly comfortable and have good arch support. The sole has a bit of flex to it, which is good for walking or running. And, the biggest surprise was how light-weight they are. They felt GREAT on my feet.
Since purchasing them, I have tried them out walking on a track at the gym and lifting weights, and they were equally comfortable in action.
Perhaps best of all, many of the shoes made by the New Balance company-- including the 570s-- are "made in USA." It felt good to know my purchase was supporting American workers.
