Size and fit

New Balance District Run has a standard running shoe length, which means that consumers can get a pair with their actual sizing expectations. However, it is recommended to try the shoe first to ensure the right fit before buying. It is available in numerous colors and variations for both men and women versions.


The outsole of the New Balance Cush+ District Run is made of a lightweight material called EVA rubber. This component has rubber-like properties but tends to be lighter and softer than the usual rubber. This component also offers better traction on both wet and dry grounds. It does not deform easily and is quite sturdy. 


The technology at the core of the New Balance District Run is the CUSH+ midsole that offers all-day comfort without sacrificing support. This midsole cushioning offers just the right amount of support for forefoot and midfoot runners. It is designed to provide a soft and comfortable ride to the neutral runners. 

The Injection Molded EVA (IMEVA) is also utilized in the midsole section. IMEVA is a popular shoe material that offers ultimate cushioning and shock-absorbing performance. The bulk of the IMEVA is concentrated in the heel area. 


The upper unit features a uniquely textured mesh that is lightweight and breathable. This flexible knit upper is designed with seamless construction for added comfort. The upper also comes with leather overlays that made the shoe look great. These unique, no-sew synthetic overlays are common to New Balance running shoes. Another popular shoe that uses this no-sew design is the New Balance Fresh Foam 1080 v9

Additionally, the shoe collar and tongue are also padded for a more comfortable and supportive fit around the ankles.
