And the New Balance Testers Are…

Wednesday, 14 April 2010  |  News + Promos

Last week, I posted THIS.

A total of 438 runners participated in the running shoe survey and might I say that the results made hubby and I scratch our heads at one point or giggle in another.

Allow me to share the portion that intrigued me most:

When asked what brand of shoes you wear, these were the top 3 answers:

  • Nike – 49%
  • New Balance – 42%
  • Adidas – 34%

But, when asked “What in your opinion is the best running shoe brand?” you replied:

  • New Balance – 35%
  • Asics – 19%
  • Nike – 16%

I’m no research analyst, but I’d love to hear what YOU think could be the reason for runners using running shoes that isn’t their top choice. ¬†(A friend said we shouldn’t discount the fact that NB shoes were being given away hence the bias despite my informing you that the survey was not commissioned by any shoe brand.)

Anyway, without further ado, the winners of the running shoe survey who will each get 1 FREE New Balance shoe to wear test (if they agree to write a review about it) are:

  1. 11th – brucemartin3
  2. 309th – etheljansamson
  3. 355th – m_janeo10

Congratulations to the lucky runners!
