The thing I like the most about the shoes comes with the slip-on design. I was expecting this from New Balance and it proves to be practical while out running. There is not too much padding inside the heel, but it is just enough when it comes to the average running session. With the included heel pull tab, slipping them on is easy. But the shoes also come with the popular EVA foam which is used across so many designs due to its versatility. Even with thick cushioning, the foam is still quite flexible in the forefoot for a more natural stride.
