New Balance 479Every time we go for a  hike, I rave about how much I love my New Balance 479 hiker/trail runner shoes and how they’re the best shoes I’ve ever had.  Every time I rave, Colette points out that I should write an article about them.  But it’s easy enough to go look up the specs on the interwebz, so I thought up a special treat while we were out hiking today – a poem for you, our readers.  Crazy, but it popped to my head while we were hiking, and it stuck.  So without further ado:

The mountains we hike, the trails that we ride

From recycled car tires and dead tanned cowhide

Ready to take me where I want to go

My 4-7-9’s, how I do love thee so


It was originally going to be a haiku, but I didn’t feel like looking up the proper rules and since this was what popped into my head so it’s what you’re stuck with Smile
