Pink Socks:
What's even more convenient than winning two pairs of shoes is that they happen to be New Balance, which is the brand that I won last year, so I'm somewhat familiar with them (other monthly brands are Adidas & Asics).

I think I'll get 1080 v6 to eventually replace the 1080 v5 that I won last year. They have been my go to cushioned road shoe (and still have some life left), so getting the new model seems to be a smart move.

And I think I'll get the 1500 v2 as a lightweight road shoe to replace the Pearl Izumi Road n0. Other than the extreme lightness, I haven't been super happy with the Pearl Izumi's, chiefly because there's very little tread. I also have the Inov-8 F-Lites which I got on sale last summer to be lightweight road shoes, too. Those are way more grippy (yay!), but they are really firm for road runs, so these are basically my urban sprint-o shoes which are good enough for some trails.

It's too bad the coupon isn't for Inov-8, though. I need new X-Talons!
