Updates to New Balance Fresh Foam Arishi Sport

  • Soft cushioning is the goal of the New Balance Fresh Foam Arishi Sport. This road shoe makes use of a proprietary foam platform to deliver comfort and responsiveness. Shielding this full-length platform from abrasion and wear is a rubber exterior.
  • A cloth-like fabric is used for the upper unit. This material staves off irritation or hot spots, potentially allowing the runner to put on this running shoe without socks. Many breathing holes pockmark the façade, and they’re meant to maintain a cool and dry environment for the foot.

New Balance Fresh Foam Arishi Sport size and fit

This special version of the New Balance Fresh Foam Arishi is true to size. The manufacturers encourage wearers to get a pair that follows their usual sizing choices. When it comes to width, the options are D – Medium and 4E – Extra Wide for men, and B – Medium and D – Wide for women.

Outsole

Rubber is used for the outsole unit of the New Balance Fresh Foam Arishi Sport. This compound covers the entire surface of the platform, shielding it from abrasion. It has a ribbed texture that heightens traction over the asphalt.

The tips of the ridges have sipes. These almost-invisible cuts are meant to improve the flexibility of the sole unit.

Midsole

The midsole unit of the New Balance Fresh Foam Arishi Sport is made up of the full-length Fresh Foam. The purpose of this component is to support the foot and keep it safe from the impact forces generated during the landing phase. It’s also designed to last long.

The NB Response 1.0 is a sock liner that adds a bit more cushioning. It also encourages flexibility and a steady in-shoe experience.

Upper

The upper unit of this affordable running footwear has been engineered to look and feel like woven cloth. The fabrics are soft, flexible and lightweight. Some sections are closely knitted while others have a more open construction. Such a design encourages ventilation.

The ‘N’ logo is fused to either side of the façade. This iconic label, while heightening brand recognition, also serves as an overlay that helps in providing a secure wrap.

A traditional lacing system involves flat laces, discreet eyelets, and a tongue-anchor. These elements function together, giving the wearer an opportunity to get a customized fit.

The padded tongue and collar cushion the upper dimensions of the foot. These parts of the shoe are also responsible for preventing in-shoe wobbling or accidental shoe removals.
