One thing’s for sure, the months are flying by. It feels like just yesterday I was starting this blog back in August. The 25 Days of Christmas have officially commenced and being poor has made everything simple. The gifts aspect of Christmas is an afterthought now; it’s all about Christmas music on Pandora and the fresh smell of pine trees. I won’t be going home for Christmas this year so my goal is to volunteer as much as I can and do a little good on Christmas as opposed to before where I just hoped for good presents. Since I plan for such a noble holiday, I do see it fitting that I award myself a new pair of sneaks for all the selfless work I intend to do.
New Balance brings out the best heat when it’s a part of the “Made in USA” lineup. The new 996 model is done in suede, mesh and leather to provide pristine comfort. The color scheme uses beige as the base with red, green and black accents on the midsole. The sneaks are currently called the “Green and Red” and will not be released until February. These could be the first sneakers I preorder because there is no way I can pass up a local product this fresh. Luckily places like Titolo let you secure a pair now, meaning my gift could come in February.
The holidays are stressful for everyone, but this year all I’m focused on is survival and acquiring a new pair of sneaks. I doubt a Christmas bonus is in my future so I’ll take the frugal path in early December to get me a little Christmas #heatonfeet.
