Super comfy. Super soft. Super 'runable'.
All in all, [I] definitely approve these… couldn't be happier.
Softer ride, tougher upper.
With its pillowy Fresh Foam midsole and an extra wide toe box, the Hierro handled like a Cadillac on the trails. That combination worked well on easy-to-handle trails but not so much on trickier or rocky surfaces where “the sharp stuff made itself known.”
Mid and toe-strikers will enjoy the lower drop, but there’s ample padding for heel strikers as well.
Runner’s looking to take their off-road run to the next level need look no further than the Fresh Foam Hierro; a neutral, cushioned, premium trail running shoe – offering protection for your feet when taking on even the most challenging terrain.
- The New Balance Fresh Foam Hierro features the brand’s Fresh Foam midsole that takes shoe cushioning to the next level. Created from one-piece midsole foam, this shoe delivers enough amount of cushioning and soft underfoot feel.
- Another new feature of this New Balance shoe is the AT Tread Outsole. It is a reliable outsole, engineered to deliver durable traction on varied surface. This shoe is ready to take runners on varied terrains.
The Fresh Foam Hierro is available in standard shoe length. It gives snug fit on the heel, midfoot and forefoot. This shoe is not only available in standard widths but also in wide and extra wide.
The AT Tread Outsole is a trail-specific outsole engineered to deliver durable traction on different surfaces. It works hand-in-hand with the multi-directional aggressive lugs that keeps runners upright on uphill and downhill running.
The Fresh Foam Hierro uses the innovative Fresh Foam midsole of New Balance. The single piece midsole foam delivers durable cushioning for a soft underfoot feel. This midsole material is also available in the New Balance Hierro v4.
The synthetic mesh covers of the New Balance Fresh Foam Hierro gives lightweight breathability and the synthetic overlays wrap the foot securely, giving a comfortable fit. The gusset tongue does not only give added comfort but also prevent debris from entering the shoe. This shoe features the brand’s Sure Lace system, allowing laces to stay tied and prevents lace loosening.
