  • The New Balance 910 v4 GTX encourages the runner to log more miles as it promotes running under any weather with the GORE-TEX® waterproof membrane. This shoe features a sleeker design and a lighter construction compared to its predecessor.
  • The upper gets a revamped design with the Toe Protect™ technology and the use of a synthetic saddle. It does, however, retain the air mesh upper that capably confirms a well-ventilated run and the cleatie construction that provides comfort and support.
  • Like the previous iteration, the 910 v4 GTX makes use of the REVlite foam in the midsole. This compound proves to be effective in delivering a responsive ride and a durable cushioning. Also, still present is the HydroHesion Rubber (HHR) outsole, but now with an updated lug pattern.

The waterproof version of the New Balance 910 v4 has a standard running shoe length and is available in various size options. The moderate construction ensures a snug and secure fit from heel to toe. Runners will appreciate the width profiles that come in medium and wide for both the men’s and women’s versions.

The HydroHesion Rubber (HHR) used in the outsole is an advanced rubber compound that specifically works its traction during activities in water environments. This sticky rubber also grips excellently on rugged trails.

The new layout of the outsole displays lugs that have more space between one another, in contrast to the shoe’s previous release that had lugs close together. The flex grooves now focus on the forefoot area and the arch.

Through the use of the brand’s signature REVlite foam, the midsole of the 910 v4 GTX makes the shoe lightweight, yet still has the same bounce and cushioning of traditional, heavier foams.

The REVlite foam brings a light and steady ride and a plush underfoot cushioning, but not at the expense of construction. With its unique structure, the midsole ensures comfort and functionality with each step.

The forefoot area is equipped with a Rock Stop® plate. It protects the foot by dispersing the shock that occurs when landing on rocks and debris.

The upper of the New Balance 910 v4 GTX employs a breathable air mesh, making sure that the foot is relaxed and dry. It is improved with the addition of a GORE-TEX® membrane, resulting in a waterproof shoe that also guarantees durability. This upper material is also present in some waterproof running shoes.

Instead of the usual overlays, this shoe has a synthetic midfoot saddle via a no-sew application. It offers support and maintains the shoe’s structural integrity. The shoelaces are attached to the saddle, allowing an adjustable fit.

The forefoot area is installed with Toe Protect™, a rubber compound that provides reinforcement and shield against the elements that could cause injuries.
