The New Balance sneaker line is known for their excellent quality, wide color and size choice, and fair pricing. Their New Balance 790 line definitely follows suit. The New Balance 790 is available in sneaker, basketball, and even snowboard boot styles. Professional athletes, snowboarders, and runners (not to mention the regular everyday shoppers who purchase the line for their comfort and affordablilty factors) have praised the New Balance 790 sneakers.
James Worthy, forward for the LA Lakers, endorsed, wore, and made famous the New Balance 790 basketball style sneaker. James Worthy was a seven-time NBA all-star and was in the final four for the NCAA Most Outstanding Player award in 1982, along with several other prestigious awards. His career with the Lakers spanned from 1982 to 1994 and was studded with awards and nominations.
Snowboarders also enjoy the lightweight, flexible, yet supportive New Balance 790 snowboard boot style, which comes in several sizes and a choice of colors, including acid and black. The New Balance 790 snowboard boot uses the basketball style silhouette, but adds the extra sturdiness expected from a boot made for snowboarding, while retaining the weight and comfort associated with a sneaker.
The sneaker style was originally developed for competitive runners, specifically to be used while racing. The New Balance 790 is lighter in weight than other racing sneakers, giving runners an extra advantage. However, the price for this weight advantage was paid in cushioning, causing the New Balance 790 to be less than adequate for running in rough terrains; these sneakers were designed for track running (or mall walking!). Consider getting a heavier sneaker with more cushioning and ankle support if you plan to hike or run a trail with rocks, dips, or other hazards.
Though the snowboard boot style may be harder to find in larger or wider widths, the New Balance 790 sneaker style can be found online in sizes up to 13EE. Prices range from $50 to $80 dollars online for the sneaker style, but can go up to $160 for the snowboard style, depending on vendor. The basketball style run an average of $80 and also comes in a variety of colors and sizes.
The New Balance 790 women’s sneaker style range in exciting color combinations, such as silver with rose trim and black with a hot pink trim, making these perfect sneakers to wear out shopping, as well as at the track.
These sneakers make a stylish, sporty statement whether worn with jeans or sweats, at the track, the mall, or the gym. Their comfort and fun colors make them perfect for summer. The sneaker style of the New Balance 790 comes in sizes for men, women and children, so the whole family can be dressed in lightweight, fun comfort!
