The New Balance 770 was created for active men who prioritize comfort in their walking footwear. The shoe features a lace-free slip-on design that makes it fast and easy to put on and remove. The brand’s proprietary ABZORB material is used for cushioning.

Durable rubber shields the bottom of the trainer. It is made to withstand the abrasion from concrete pavements, rocky trails, and other types of terrain.

The outsole pattern of the New Balance 770 features lugs of various shapes and sizes. They are accompanied by multi-directional flex grooves to make a flexible, protective, and traction-ready platform.

A full-length ABZORB compound serves as the midsole unit of the New Balance 770. It is a foam-based polymer which incorporates consistent cell size, shape, and thickness to maintain its form upon compression. It is also a lightweight material which doesn’t drag the foot down during walking. The same cushioning unit is employed in the New Balance 1201 walking trainer. But unlike the 770, it sports a regular lace-up design.

The brand’s Response 1.0 Performance insert is placed on top of the midsole. It affords extra underfoot padding for comfort.

The New Balance 770 employs a slip-on design for easy on-and-off wear. An elastic material is embedded at the top of the instep to accommodate the process of putting on and removing the shoe.

Suede makes up the main portion of the upper. It renders secure support and a snug fit. Small ventilation pores are added across the instep. They allow for the heat to dissipate from the foot chamber.

The bottom of the unit is reinforced with thick synthetic leather overlays. They contribute to the structure and durability of the footwear.
