Updates to New Balance 910 v4
- The fourth iteration of the New Balance 910 presents new structural inclusions that provide protection all over the foot, without sacrificing comfort. As a trail running shoe, the 910 v4 possesses features that aim to withstand the variable elements in nature.
- The upper of this running shoe from New Balance brings back the Toe Protect™ technology, and it is coupled by a synthetic saddle and an aggressive bootie construction, yielding overall protection for the foot.
- The midsole still has the signature REVlite cushioning, which is the brand’s innovative foam. It has the responsiveness and durability that loyal brand users will recognize. Also retained is the HydroHesion outsole with a lug pattern that is different than its predecessor.
New Balance 910 v4 size and fit
The New Balance 910 v4 has a standard running shoe length. Although the shoe has a modest construction, it is available in width options of medium and wide for men and women, thus catering to runners with any foot volume.
A sticky and aggressive rubber material makes up the HydroHesion outsole of the 910 v4. It delivers optimal traction, especially on wet ground. The outsole also excels on technical trails.
The lugs now have more space between one another. It covers the entire length of the shoe, apart from the forefoot and arch, which are installed with flex grooves to promote mobility.
The REVlite midsole conveys the same level of cushioning and energy return as before. New Balance describes this feature as lighter and softer compared to traditional foams, thus providing a lightweight ride but not minimizing construction or stability.
In between the midsole and outsole sits a Rock Stop® plate. It supplies additional underfoot protection against rocks, roots, and other debris.
A dual-density Airmesh creates the upper of the New Balance 910 v4. It works by circulating air correctly so that the foot stays dry.
The construction of the upper consists of a full toe box and a snug midfoot, offering a balance of security and comfort. The midfoot area employs a synthetic saddle that acts as the shoe’s framework, giving support and maintaining structural integrity.
As protection, the shoe has a heel collar with a plush layout, enabling a comfortable hold on the heel so that it does not feel overly restricting. It also has a Toe Protect™ bumper, which shields the forefoot from injury-causing elements.
