As I work through my house spring (summer) cleaning, I keep finding more good stuff that I just don’t use (perhaps this should influence my future shopping habits).  This time its shoes.  All three pairs have under 10 miles (two are essentially brand new) and are in fantastic condition.  If you would like a pair:

  1. Leave a comment below (comment on the blog not on a Facebook post, reply tweet or email, only blog comments count).
  2. If you’re the first person to request a pair, I’ll reply to the comment and ask you to send me an email with your address.
  3. Email me with your address and I’ll send them out.

Here are the shoes:

New Balance Fresh Foam 980 Size 8. — TAKEN

Ran in these once or twice.  No more than 10 or so total miles on the shoes.  They just didn’t work for me, although my younger brother swears by them.

Fresh Foam


Saucony Kinvara 5 Size 8. — TAKEN 

Never run in.  Worn once.  I love these shoes but I have a dozen (yes, literally a dozen) pairs and I’ve moved on to doing most of my running in Hoka One One Cliftons (if someone wants to send me a free pair of Clifton 2s in True Blue / Sunny Lime that would be really awesome).  These are great training and racing shoes.


Vibram Five Fingers Trek Size 8 (Size 40).

Never used (they didn’t fit my strange toes).

I would love the Kinvaras or Fresh Foams! Love the colors/styles!

I would give the Kinvaras a nice home in CO!

I would love the Fresh Foam or Kinvara 🙂 Whichever isn’t taken yet!

Hmm, my comment isn’t showing up. But I loved that model of Kinvara and I had exactly that pair. I hate the new model 🙁

Love the Kinvara if I could

I have heard amazing things about the Kinvara and would love to try them!

I can not believe there are people who are willing to accept used shorts that another person’s privates have been pressing against the lining of the shorts and now used shoes. I think it is gross and very unsanitary. I am also definitely not alone in my opinion.

    Ha! Dave…Kelly doesn’t sweat…

      Dave · July 3, 2015 at 12:50 pm

      Just how do you know this Leue? LOL

Question.I am four weeks postpartum, and part of my routine with my new baby girl is a daily walk. I would like to eventually build up to running, but I know that’s going to take a while, since I’m still recovering from the C-section. Are the New Balance sneakers good for walking, or are they strictly running shoes? If the former, I would love to give them a new home. If the latter, can you recommend a good shoe for walking that can transition to running?

I’d love the vibrams!

Tonya · July 2, 2015 at 1:49 pm

Nice are they all gone? Trying to get my mother walking and these would fit great

Sylvia · July 2, 2015 at 6:30 pm

Would love the Kinvara’s but forgot I need a 9 not an 8. Nuts.

HaleyComet · July 6, 2015 at 11:18 am

Are the vibrams taken? I’d love them!
