  • The New Balance Fresh Foam Arishi Sweatshirt is a cheap running shoe that’s designed for those who have neutral pronation. It makes use of a casual design that caters to shoe enthusiasts that value fashion and the aesthetics of their apparel. A knitted upper construction gives a lightweight and breathable coverage.
  • The underfoot platform features a proprietary foam compound that aims to carry the foot responsibly throughout the running session. The weight-bearing midsole is covered by a rubber layer that acts as a shield against wear and tear.

This special version of the Fresh Foam Arishi was designed using the standard measurements. It adheres to the expectations of consumers when it comes to length. The available width profiles for the B – Medium and D – Wide for the women’s iteration. The men’s version has the D – Medium and 4E – Extra Wide options. The form-fitting shape of the silhouette admits the natural shape of the human foot.

The outsole unit of the New Balance Fresh Foam Arishi Sweatshirt makes use of a rubber compound to protect the midsole foam from the abrasive nature of the roads. It is also responsible for doling out surface traction.

Minute lugs are patterned across the entire length of the external layer. The purpose of these non-prominent protrusions is to amplify traction on the ground.

Small cuts are added to the tips of the gripping lugs. They encourage the flexibility of the platform and the capacity of the foot to bend naturally.

Fresh Foam is a midsole component that’s designed to provide a comfortable platform for the foot. It is also meant to give off a sense of plushness and responsiveness that complements the natural capacity of the runner to move and take each step.

The NB Response 1.0 Performance Insert is an insole that’s placed on top of the core midsole foam. It adds a bit more cushioning for the immediate underfoot.

The upper unit of the Fresh Foam Arishi Sweatshirt is made up of a knitted material that offers a soft wrap. It has ventilation ports that allow air to enter the foot-chamber and maintain a cool and dry interior.

The materials of the façade have been installed using a no-sew application process. This configuration makes sure to prevent hot spots and skin irritation while also giving off a clean look for the exterior.

The New Balance ‘N’ logo has been printed directly onto the medial and lateral sides of the knitted silhouette. It is made out of a synthetic material. A see-through version of this thin element reinforces the eyelets of the lacing system and the heel part.
