  • Featuring a unique upper made of molded foam, the New Balance Fresh Foam Crush brings an element of stylish flair to a woman’s workout footwear. This trainer is constructed to be lightweight but durable to endure the high-intensity types of exercises.
  • The midsole uses the Fresh Foam cushioning technology. This responsive platform attenuates shock by compressing when the foot hits the ground and quickly springs back to its original form, ready for the next impact.
  • The bottom is lined with rubber. This compound is made to be hard-wearing and provide traction on various types of surfaces.

Designed with women’s foot shape and dynamics in mind, the New Balance Fresh Foam Crush is available in US female sizes 5 to 12. It comes in B - Medium and D - Wide width profiles.

The New Balance Fresh Foam Crush employs a full-length rubber outsole. This compound is made to be durable to protect the midsole against harsh elements on the ground. The textured tread pattern serves to enhance traction on various indoor and outdoor surfaces.

The New Balance Fresh Foam Crush, as the name suggests, utilizes the brand’s Fresh Foam cushioning platform. This compound is engineered to be lightweight, durable, and flexible. It is also created responsive as it compresses upon impact to absorb shock and returns immediately to its original state, ready for the next impact.

The footbed is lined with fabric. This material is intended to deliver a cozy underfoot feel while also preventing slippage inside.

The New Balance Fresh Foam Crush features a foam-molded upper. This material is lightweight and renders a unique design to the shoe. Because of the foam’s soft nature, New Balance added an internal support cage that gives structure and amplifies the lateral support for dynamic movements. It also has perforations that allow the inside to breathe and keep the foot fresh.

A traditional lace-up closure securely locks the foot in place. Both the tongue and the collar are only lightly padded.

New Balance is known to update its models sometimes by collaborating with other brands or just releasing the model in new colorways or prints. The Fresh Foam Crush has two new versions that use the same technologies as the original, but in which the upper has been updated.

New Balance Fresh Foam Crush Fun Pack

This iteration sports the Silver Mink with Navy colorway. This variant looks strikingly similar to the White with Silver Mink option, but the Foam Crush Fun Pack has a navy collar trimming, and the rubber outsole is also the same shade.

New Balance Fresh Foam Crush Geo Metallic

This update stands out the most because of the geometric print on the upper. The New Balance brand on the tongue and quarters is printed in gold, thus the Metallic nomenclature.
