Updates to New Balance Fresh Foam Kaymin TRL

  • The New Balance Fresh Foam Kaymin TRL is a trail running companion that’s meant for those who have neutral pronation. It doesn’t have a bulky design that permeates most off-road footwear, but it’s reinforced with several add-ons to make it stronger.
  • A breathable mesh covers the foot and keeps it ventilated. Synthetic overlays help in providing a secure fit. A Gore-Tex® water-resistant membrane helps stave off splashes. A rubber layer called Toe Protect™ protects the forefoot from debris and other trail hazards.
  • The outsole unit of the Fresh Foam Kaymin TRL features a tread configuration that functions on both the trails and the roads. It has semi-aggressive gripping lugs, but they’re not pointy or claw-like. They’re also spaced evenly so they won’t cause any instability when tackling flat surfaces.

New Balance Fresh Foam Kaymin TRL size and fit

The New Balance Fresh Foam Kaymin TRL was designed using regular measurements. When it comes to length, it adheres to the usual choices of consumers. For the width, the available options are D – Medium and 4E – Extra Wide for men, and B – Medium and D – Wide for women. The foot-shaped last of this running shoe mimics the natural curve of the human foot.

Outsole

The outsole unit makes use of the AT Tread, a rubber compound that has an all-terrain configuration. It has gripping lugs for trail-specific activities, but they’re not very aggressive, and their tips are relatively flat. Transitioning the running session to the roads won’t become an issue with such a design.

Midsole

Fresh Foam is one of New Balance’s cushioning compounds. It’s designed to carry the foot throughout the activity while protecting from the landing impacts. It has polygonal indentations and patterns on the sides for extra bounce.

The Response 2.0 is a performance insert that offers additional cushioning. It’s flexible, so it doesn’t hinder the natural bending capacity of the toe joints.

Upper

A breathable mesh serves as the primary material of the New Balance Fresh Foam Kaymin TRL’s upper. This soft fabric has ventilation pores that accommodate airflow into the foot-chamber.

There are synthetic overlays on the façade. These printed add-ons hold the foot in place, preventing it from wobbling during the run.

A Gore-Tex® water-resistant membrane improves confidence when in wet conditions as it staves off mild splashes.

The Toe Protect™ technology is a rubber cap in the forefoot section that acts as a barrier against rough surfaces and debris. It’s thin, so it blends with the smooth structure of the façade.

A thin tongue allows for more space inside the shoe. It doesn’t extend to the metatarsal area like most tongue units; instead, the mesh material of the upper extends to—and encompasses half of—the instep, acting as an anchor for the laces and as a barrier against trail debris.
