Headlining New Balance’s Spring 2014 collection is their newest innovative technology called Fresh Foam. Fresh Foam technology uses concave and convex geometric shapes in to form a highly cushioned ride. The 980 Fresh Foam employs this technology and comes in both road and trail editions.
As part of their spring line, New Balance is introducing two new racing shoes. The RC1600v2 is a stripped down version of the original marathon shoe model. New Balance removed some of the unnecessary overlays on the upper to provide a more comfortable fit. For shorter distance runners, the light and responsive RC5000v1 is designed for distances of up to 10k.
The MT110v2 trail shoe went a complete overhaul for its second edition. The shoe switched to a Revlite midsole that should be lighter and softer than its predecessor. However, changes to the the uppers and toe box make this she slightly more heavy than its first edition.
Finally, for those looking for a new stability shoe, New Balance will be releasing the 870v3. A supportive and cushioned shoe in a very light package, the shoe stacks up with the lightest stability shoes on the market today.
