New Balance 860 Giveaway!

I’m back (if by, back, you mean I’ve scheduled this post) with another giveaway!


Unfortunately, this one is only for those ladies with big feet like me. I have an extra pair of these bad boys from work and they’re a size 10.5.


Yup, 5’5″ and a 10.5.

Moving on…

The 860s are traditional stability shoes and were named Editor’s Choice by Runner’s World last year. They have all sorts of bells and whistles to keep you supported while running, including a removable Abzorb cushioning insert and N-energy cushioning in the heel.

I wore these shoes for Reach the Beach through most of my marathon training. I’d never worn them before RTB and transitioned right into them with no issues, including no blisters. They’re great shoes for high-volume, long-distance training…

Have big feet and run long distances?

Awesome, then enter below.

Leave a comment telling me why you’d like to win these shoes; for a bonus entry, pin either of the above images on Pinterest and leave an extra comment telling me you’ve done so.

This giveaway only open to those in the United States. I will close this giveaway on 1/2/2012 at 12:00pm ET.

    My current sneaks need to be retired/replaced asap, and I these are actually my size! Hope you are having a great time on your trip!

  2. Mikaela

    I would love these shoes because I’m currently recovering from foot surgery that hasn’t let me run since May (!!!), which has been brutal. On my to-do list is to replace my running shoes so I can get back out there, and I’m a size 10.5!!

  3. Amy

    I am not a runner… yet… but am recuperating from a busted knee and could really use these for all of the physical therapy!

  4. Mami2jcn

    We wear the same size! I’m 5’9″, though. I have suffered from bunions and bunionettes (adorable, right?) and I’d love new sneakers!

  5. Kadye

    Wow! There’s never a giveaway in my shoe size! How exciting! I’d love to win these shoes because my current shoes are worn and well over a year old. Time for some new ones!

  6. Maureen

    I’m also 5’5″ and 10.5! I would love to win these shoes because I always have a hard time finding shoes for my giant Amazon woman feet, but New Balance has always been good to me.

  7. Sarah Hyers

    Finding shoes in a half size, specifically 10.5 is the worst! I’d love to win these since I’m in the market for a new pair and still broke from Christmas 🙁

  8. Julie

    Where do I begin?! Let’s start with I’m wearing a 10 but could use a little more wiggle room. I run everyday and it’s really expensive to replace shoes as often as I should. I have bad feet and need a really good stability shoe. New Balance is great. I love to run and giveaways are fun!

  9. Sade

    I need to buy some new sneaks cuz i run 4-6 times/wk and have had mine for > 1 yr. They have literally given me the most gnarly pinky toe blisters. What can I say, living large as a student 🙂 also – this is my size

  10. Macy Hunsicker

    I am a 10.5 and my sore shins say I need new shoes before starting spring marathon training next week. Please Santa!

  11. Shelby L

    I would LOVE these and they are my size!! And of course I forgot to ask for running shoes for Christmas so this would be great! Thanks!!

  12. Alyssa

    I’m training for my first half marathon and could use a pair of reliable shoes for longer distances! I’m also only 5’3 with big feet =)

  13. E-Kate

    I would love to win these! I need new running shoes and this would be the perfect thing to jumpstart me into training for my 3rd 1/2 marathon!

  14. Amanda @FancyOatmeal

    I’d love to win these New Balance shoes because I’ve always been a fan of New Balance. I’ve been running for a few years now, but of all the lessons I’ve learned, having the right shoes is one of the best and most important.

  15. sinnela

    I’ve been wanting to try out New Balance for a while – a good American company! I’ve always run for exercise, but just this year I’ve been trying to push myself in terms of longer distances and faster speeds… new sneakers might just help me out! (Also, I’ve recently come to terms with the fact that I have size 10-10.5 feet.)

  16. Mary Frances Daly

    My sister calls my 10.5 feet skis! I would love these for some motivation for training for my March half in SC and the Nike Women’s Half in DC in April. I need something to get me going because the snow coming down right now isn’t working!

  17. Katie D.

    Yay!! A giveaway specific to my big feet! I’d love to win, because I’m thinking of training for a half and would need new shoes!

  18. Suzanne Welch

    I feel your pain. I have had these 10.5 puppies since I was 12. I would love to wear these shoes as I actually got off the couch and wore them on a run instead of just making big plans about running. 2013 is the year of action!

  19. Gianna

    I love others with big feet no shame. I’m close to 5’9 but my bad boys were full size by third grade. Awkward much?!

    I would love these. I burn through sneakers running upwards of 40 miles most weeks and marathon training and these have received great reviews!

    Enjoy sun and fun and vacation!!

  20. Emily Y

    There’s never a giveaway in my size! Training/tapering for January marathon after IT band mishap in early December.

    Enjoy St. Croix!

  21. dorry

    I’m not a size 10.5 but my sister is, and she’s about to start training for her 2nd half marathon post-3 babies. I know she would be so excited to start training with a brand new pair of shoes! 🙂

  22. Katie K

    Whoo! I would love to win these and try them out – like many others, I am looking forward to spending 2013 getting back into running after becoming a barre addict. Bige feet ladies, unite!

  23. Kelly Schalk

    I would love to win this giveaway! I am new to tumblr and just posted my first post. After I posted, I came across your blog and became inspired. For the New Year, I have decided to make some life changes to have a healthier life style. I have size 10.5 foot and seeing these shoes my feet smiled 🙂 These shows look so comfortable. I have never had nice running shoes and these would be great for preparing for a 5k/marathon in my future. I also pinned the above image to my pinterest account.. check it out here

  24. Sonia

    I would love a pair of new shoes to start the new year! I’ve slacked this year (2012) as far as 5k’s go (not as many as I did in 2011), and am ready to set better goals this coming year. Hoping to make it a goal to run the Disney Princess half in 2013. In order to achieve that I have to start running again, and new shoes would be awesome!

  25. Annie

    These are exactly my size, and I’m just about to get rolling with training for 2 halfs in the spring! I’d love to have a great new pair of sneaks to help me get there – Thank you for being so generous!

  26. Carol B

    OMG, I need these desperately, I didn’t get any new sneaks for Christmas and now I’m broke…these would be awesome, hope you had a good vacation!

  27. Alison

    I would LOVE these. I ran my first half marathon in a pair of New Balances and absolutely loved them. It doesnt hurt that they are cute too!

  28. Meghan

    Wow, rare to see a giveaway in my size! Looking to mix up my running routes (sorry National Mall!) and shoes in 2013!

  29. Katie

    I would love to win these because they’re my size, and I’m running my first half marathon in Febuary and desperately need a new pair of shoes before then!
