Discontinued shoes

Post  Tim C on Thu Feb 16, 2017 2:43 pm

Anyone know a good place to find running shoes that have been discontinued?  New Balance discontinued the 890 about 18 months ago and I still had a couple of pairs but now I need new shoes and can't find anything I like.  Would LOVE to find some more 890's somewhere.

Check National Running Center, Holabirds, and even Road Runner Sports - all carry discontinued models.

I'll check those first 2, Michele.  I'm very familiar with RoadRunner as I have purchased all of my shoes there for years.  When they would come out with 890v5 I'd buy the v4's at a discount.  Unfortunately they have no 890's in any version in my size.  

I knew I should have bought more back when they discontinued them....

I was in a similar situation a few years back and spent 30 to 40 minutes on google and after a few dead ends I was able to find a couple pair in my size.

Good luck.

Ha!  Found a pair on Kingsize...  Geez, I'm 6' 170, hardly King size... But they had my size in stock and I don't care that I just had to spend $129 for shoes I was paying $89 for....

Ah, the little joys in life...

Lol, when I emailed them last week wondering where my shoes were, they replied "those shoes are discontinued and we no longer can get them".  Well thanks a lot, like I didn't know that...

Ugh. I hate that when that happens. Suspect
