That Fresh Foam cushioning

The 1365 model takes cues from the brand’s running shoes in selecting Fresh Foam as its midsole unit. Fresh Foam has become one of the brand’s flagship cushioning technologies primarily for its highly responsive and lightweight characteristic. Stretching from heel to toe, this EVA-based component delivers consistent comfort.

The cushioning is further reinforced by a drop-in polyurethane insole. It adds another layer of support that guards the wearer against impact upon each foot landing.

New Balance Fresh Foam 1365 heelcounter

A hard plastic counter wraps around the heel to prevent it from rolling over the edge of the midsole. It makes sure that the plush cushioning doesn’t let the foot wobble.

Padded yet breathable

To prevent the foot from getting toasty, the shoe utilizes an engineered mesh upper. The material allows fresh air to pass through the interiors and keep odor at bay.

Grippy and durable where you need it

Unlike dedicated athletic shoes, walking trainers do not require tough outsoles for protection. Thus, the NB 1365 is only employed with a few targeted rubber pads. Placed around the heel and the toes, they ensure basic grip and durability.
