W1980BOS__6They’ve been in the sneaker business since 1906, so it’s safe to say that New Balance knows a thing or two about feet, footwear and running sneakers.

As a lead up to the Boston Marathon, which takes place every year on the 3rd Monday in April, the Brighton-based sneaker company is letting ‘heads know that around Boston….everything is ‘Fastah’ (read: Faster).

“We take a lot of pride in being a Boston-based company, this is our hometown,” says Claire Wood, Senior Product Manager for Performance Running at New Balance. “Boston is where we live, work and train. It is important for us to honor our roots and the incredible running heritage we have here in Boston. Every year, this shoe pays respect to our storied city and the many runners that flock here throughout the year to train and run.” ~Boston.com
