What’s in a shoe? Well when it comes to New Balance, a shoe is definitely not just a shoe, but so much more. We had the pleasure of seeing their whole 2014 collection and finding out what’s new not only in styles and colors, but also in form and usage.
While the entire 2014 collection was definitely dazzling, I have to say that I’m in love with the Minimus in blue (shown below). I actually have this shoe, and have for several months now. That’s how much I love this shoe! I need it in this stunning blue along with the striking neon yellow that is already a staple of my gym going wardrobe.
So what’s new in the 2014 lineup? Freshfoam 80! New Balance will introduce a men’s only training design with the FreshFoam 80. Designed with innovative technologies, the FreshFoam 80 provides a revolutionary approach to training by combining ultra-plush cushioning with a reduced drop from heel to forefoot for a stable experience in the gym. FreshFoam 80 will launch in July 2014 with a suggested retail price of $129.95.
For fall 2014, New Balance will debut their latest update to the neutral cushioning category with the New Balance 880v4.
