The New Balance 990 Tax Refund is the latest project by Shoe City and New Balance. The shoe will officially drop on Friday March the 6th and will retail for $175. As the name indicates it, this rendition of the NB 990 was inspired by the Tax season as it features a gradient treatment reminiscent of the tax return checks from toe to heel. The shoe is constructed with premium pig suede leather overlays with mesh materials covering the to box, the tongue & is extension and the portions of the quarter panel. Each pair will include a tidepool and red set of laces.
I can’t help but make the following observation, as much as I like the idea of “big checks and no stress”, life isn’t just about aiming to live comfortably. As King Solomon said in the book of Ecclesiastes, the main duty of man is to fear God and shun evil. Jesus gave several parables about the danger of making life’s purposes a pursuit of comfort. There is nothing wrong with wanting rest, God actually commands us to find our rest in Him. We exists to glorify God and that ought to be our sole purpose in life, I’ll live with you with the parable below
Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” 14 But he said to him, “Man, who made me a judge or arbitrator over you?” 15 And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” 16 And he told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man produced plentifully, 17 and he thought to himself, ‘What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’ 18 And he said, ‘I will do this: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.”’ 20 But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’ 21 So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.”
Luke 12: 13-21
