Made with New Balance’s unmistakable look, the 990 v4 offers one of the best solutions when for versatility. With a durable outsole and upper, the shoes are used for running. But they also represent one of the leading options for training in the gym, walking or other physical activities, similarly to many other New Balance options. With a design which favors those who seek extra cushioning with their 12mm drop, the shoes represent one of the best solutions when it comes to overall shock absorption capacity. Of course, they are not the lightest running shoes, but the purpose goes much further.
New Balance is known for their retro-style designs. But while the 1080v8 look somewhat retro, they are modern sports shoes which are often used for running. As an all-American design, the shoes have a certain appeal to them, and their 8th version is among the up to date options from the manufacturer. There is a new Ortholite insole, blown rubber outsole and a new design with no-sew materials. This is enough for the New Balance fans but can it be the right solution for runners moving from other brands?
As one of the premium designs for stability and cushioning, the New Balance 1260 v7 represent one of the most interesting solutions when you want the best materials. The main strength of the shoe comes with the resistant outsole which is designed according to flexion areas in the forefoot. The outsole is also flat on the midfoot area to offer improved overall support for arches as well. With a mesh upper, the shoes are among the breathable options to consider. But they are still quite heavy by New Balance standards so they might be a solution when you need better shock absorption.
The New Balance Fresh Foam Zante v4 is one of the most respected designs of the moment. This is primarily due to the combination of a lightweight profile and the HypoSkin technology which allows it to be a distinct design. At 244 grams, it is also among the lightweight options from New Balance. The shoes are made to be fast and for this reason, the 6mm drop is used for a responsive design which is characteristic to the users who seek improved performance even with a mid-range design.
As one of the lightest shoes from New Balance, the FuelCore Coast v4 is now lighter, faster and more comfortable. With a beautiful design, the shoes can also pass as casual solutions when you seek to have improved comfort while walking or standing. Made with a simple upper, the practical shoes represent one of the leading solutions when it comes to better overall comfort.
