New Balance is a reputable brand of running shoes and you got them at a very good price. Congrats. I also look out for NB sales bec of the way they slash down the prices from the orig cost. Sulit talaga.
Re your question about Accel: it turns out to be a good brand after all. My sister who's based in the US bought a pair when she was here 2 yrs ago. She wanted a Pinoy brand as a souvenir (along w/ her Bench jeans and Pennshoppe pasalubongs for her kids). She said her Accels were comfortable and good enough for jogging and gym use.
