I was compensated to share the news of New Balance St. Louis but the opinions are my own.
BUT before I go into all that, can we all head over the honesty mat? I need to come clean about something. If you follow me on Instagram, you know we had a big family weekend. We held my baby sister’s first bridal shower.
I’ll share more details about that later but the party I need to be honest about is the fact that I went three days without a workout. YIKES! This is very out of the ordinary for me this training cycle and I felt off balance the entire time but the need to be present during the entire weekend came first.
So have I scrapped my Ironman training?
Nope, just looking at it like it was recovery time. 🙂 Now I’ve jumped back in! Ok, so let’s move on shall we?
My love affair with New Balance is bigger than liking a pair of shoes. To me it’s a family brand. My grandfather and dad wore them. E would ONLY wear them as a toddler. Most of E’s cousins also share his love of the 990s. I’ve been running in them on and off for years. And they are one of the only brands to carry shoes made entirely in the USA (990s)!
I found out recently that all of the local New Balance Stores are locally owned. I was confused…I assumed that all these stores were one by the New Balance Mothership. Turns out, they’re essentially franchises! The owners of the St. Louis (and Kansas City, and Branson) stores are from Washington, MO, and are quite possibly the cutest couple you’ll ever meet.
The brand I love, sold locally, supporting local people! DONE DEAL!
You can find a New Balance Store just about everywhere in town. There are three St. Louis Metro locations:
- Creve Coeur on Olive, east of Highway 270 (11633 Olive Boulevard) – FaceBook Page
- Richmond Heights on Big Bend, just north of Highway 40 (1205 S. Big Bend Boulevard) – FaceBook Page
- Fairview Heights in St. Clair Square (6540 N. Illinois Street, Suite 104) –FaceBook Page
What will you find when you go in there?
A gorgeous store, full of amazing people who know their returning customers by name. The stores carry all the latest New Balance styles of clothes and apparel for men and women. Some stores are even starting to carry kids shoes!
Just look at these styles.
Jacket – Newbury Jacket- on Sale for $79.90
Our women’s Newbury Jacket gives you a cute, cropped fit with a touch of cool-girl faux leather on the inner arms and sides.

Why should you visit?
Well, I would recommend you visit for a number of reasons. One being because there’s no waiting for your purchases to arrive. In and out the same day! It’s a great feeling to buy local. Their employees are well trained to answer any questions you may have, and they specialize in properly fitting each customer. A quick footscan can show any pressure points in your feet, and can determine if you will need some arch support to get you feeling your best.
If you’re looking for a little more motivation, go in March 31st through April 9th for their Anniversary Sale (that cute couple I mentioned have been in the shoe business for 67 years!)! Everything in the store will be 10% to 25% off (some exclusions apply, of course)! That’s better than just about any online deal you’ll find.
Want to learn more about the sale? Why not check out the commercial!! And look real close you might see someone you know!
When you go in, tell them you saw it here! They’ll love that!
So head on over to the New Balance Store, introduce yourself, stock up on your favorite shoe and walk away (or run, your choice) a happy (returning) customer!
