Fresh from New Balance, a preview of the running shoes to look forward to this Fall!
New Balance Vazee 2090
Launching July 1st for $150, the Vazee 2090 represents the pinnacle of speed in the Vazee collection.
The midsole sees a mix of N2, nitrogen infused TPU and REVlite, while the upper is designed to fit a variety of foot shapes while allowing for stretch and return.
New Balance 1260v6
Renewed for its 6th edition is the 1260 – NB premium stability shoe. This edition promises to emphasize cushioning in addition to support.
The midsole sees a layer of ABZORB covering the dual-density foam application underneath to deliver a soft feeling under foot. N2 pod in the heel softens the impact for heavy strikers.
The upper is made of an engineered mesh that is supportive mid-foot and that allows the toes to splay.
The 1260v6 launches in July for a recommended retail price of $150
New Balance Fresh Foam Gobi
The Fresh Foam Gobi is an all new model for 2016. It is meant as an all-terrain shoe to take the runner from road to trail. Also available in July, it will retail at $95.
The Gobi borrows the midsole from the Fresh Foam Zante while adding an appropriate outsole.
New Balance Vazee Pace v2
The Vazee Pace v2 launches in July 2016 at a recommended retail price of $109.95.
Championed by a responsive REVlite midsole for a lightweight and responsive ride, the Vazee Pace v2 features slightly more blown rubber coverage in the forefoot for enhanced longevity.
The upper is all new with a bootie construction to provide a “second skin” feeling.
New Balance Vazee Rush v2
Last in this preview the Vazee Rush v2. Launch (guess when) is July 2016 for a RRP of $89.95.
The Vazee Rush v2 introduces a new midsole foam material called Rapid Rebound. According to NB, this material provides substantially more rebound than New Balance’s standard performance foams. The upper includes a new 3-layer mesh upper that provides support while remaining lightweight and breathable. With a midfoot saddle and no-sew bootie construction, it seems to provide quite some engineering for such a low price. We’re eager to test them.
