No these don’t come with a brown bad. You barf off too the side, so you don’t get any on your shoes. Also; who has purple barf? They might need to go to see a doc, make sure it’s a medical doc. We got a lot of people with PhDs running around and people think they can solve their medical dilemmas but some can’t. New Balance 997 has always been a favorite in the retro runners community. This is just a notch under their belt. The materials are premium as we would expect nothing less from the good folks of New Balance.
