Have Trouble looking for the types of shoe you want?
Below, the image will guide you through the types of New Balance shoes you should go for depending on your needs.
New Balance Technology
N2 technology allows for less material underfoot, while delivering cushioning scores equal or better than shoes with traditional midsole heights. Giving you a more lightweight shoe with the same great cushioning.
Sure Lace technology secures the shoe laces better, providing added mid-foot support to keep the shoe snug around the foot, improving fit, comfort and performance.
N-Durance is a carbon rubber compound designed for maximum outsole durability, helping your shoes to last longer in high-wear areas.
Phantom Liner provides the runner with a seamless upper fit, reducing abrasion and increasing comfort with a sleek finish.
N-Fuse is a dual-layered cushioning foam which contains a soft foam on top for superb shock attenuation and a firmer structured foam underneath which increases stability and prevents side-to-side roll of the heel.
Abzorb is a highly cushioned pad unit which sits under the heel which provides superb shock absorption, reducing impact stress for each time you heelstrike.
Offers ultimate cushioning benefits through its polymer structure and unique cored design. An improved level of resistance to compression set provides optimal durability.
Dynamic Transition System combines Abzorb foam with Abzorb SBS to provide optimal cushioning and a smooth transition from heel-strike to forefoot.
Full Length Abzorb Strobel Board
Prevalent in New Balance's top level shoes, the Full Length Abzorb Strobel Board ensures a cushioned step all the way through the running cycle from heel to forefoot. The Strobel Board works to great effect in ensuring shock displacement and offering a luxury cushioning feel.
A resilient engineered elastomer designed to provide great shock absorption and response in the heel and forefoot for an optimal ride.
The medial post in New Balance shoes acts to ward against over-pronation. A hard splint structure on the medial side of the foot, helps to stop the foot rolling during the running cycle.
Stability Web is a mid-foot support that provides superb arch support that's rigid and strong which reduces stress on the Platar Fascia and encourages forefoot reflexiveness.
An adjustable internal liner that is integrated into the lacing to provide a custom fit and securely hold the foot in place.
A protective flexible layer, mainly used in New Balance's trail collection, that defends the feet from rocks, shock and sharp objects that you encounter on the trail, minimising pressure and dispersing shock energy.
Superior fabric keeps you dry and comfortable by managing moisture transfer.
A water evacuation system that contains peripheral perforated ports which allows moisture to escape, keeping your feet comfortable and dry in any wet conditions.
Acteva Lite / Acteva UltraLite
Acteva Lite is a lightweight cushioned midsole which is 24% lighter than traditional EVA compounds, whilst maintaining it's superb cushioning.
Acteva UltraLite is 12% more lightweight than Acteva Lite, offering optimal lightweight performance.
A TPU (Thermo-Plastic Polymer Unit) posting system built to minimise rear-foot movement that when combined the TS2 system achieves superb motion control.
An innovative foam compound which provides the same responsiveness and durability found in heavier foams.
A dual-use outsole tread which combines both trail and running design for use on and off-road.
