2010 marks New Balance’s 21st anniversary of partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure, fighting to eradicate breast cancer. The Lace Up collection offers a variety of stylish and functional shoes, apparel and accessories. My personal favorite is the “Protect 2nd Base” tee shirt, a flirty and fitted Polyester/Spandex blend. The best aspect of giving from the Lace Up collection? New Balance contributes 5% of the suggested retail price, with a guaranteed minimum annual donation of $500,000, to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
