Updates to New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr Denim
- The New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr Denim is a running shoe that’s designed for the roads. It utilizes contemporary visual schemes as a means of enticing casual shoe enthusiasts and runners who desire some style with their performance footwear.
- The upper unit of this road companion makes use of a heathered mono-mesh that has a pseudo-denim look. It’s supposed to capture the attention of onlookers or passersby, thereby giving some flair to the aesthetics. A sock-like mono-opening allows the wearer to put on this shoe quickly and effortlessly. There is a lacing system, but they can be pre-adjusted by those who want to have a slip-on style experience.
- Fresh Foam is one of New Balance’s premier cushioning components. This full-length unit has the purpose of carrying the foot throughout the gait cycle and keeping it safe from impact. A rubber outsole shields the platform from wear and tear.
New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr Denim size and fit
The New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr Denim is a running shoe that uses the standard measurements. When it comes to size, runners can get one in their usual choices. The available widths are D – Medium and B – Medium for men and women, respectively. The semi-curved shape of the last mimics the natural curvature of the human foot.
A rubber compound serves as the outsole unit of the New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr Denim. This material is meant to shield the midsole components from the potentially harmful nature of the surfaces.
Hexagonal patterns with shallow grooves heighten traction and flexibility. Such a design accommodates the natural capacity of the foot to move through the gait cycle with ease.
Fresh Foam is a cushioning unit that runs the entire length of the New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr Denim. Its job is to deliver a rich underfoot experience, as well as well-protected landings and enabled toe-offs.
Laser engravings on the sides of the foam help in providing a more responsive experience when taking each step. These sipes fundamentally prevent the foam from feeling stiff.
Heathered mono-mesh is the fabric that’s used on the forefoot section of the upper unit. This lightweight & flexible material mimics the look-and-feel of denim.
Going from the midfoot to the heel is a stretchy material that evokes the texture of a sock. It even modifies the visuals of the New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr Denim by removing the traditional tongue unit and turning the entry point into a one-piece opening. Such a configuration gives off the impression of merely wearing a sock.
A ghillie lacing system—complete with round laces, a minimal amount of discrete eyelets, and printed reinforcements—allows the wearer to adjust the fit to suit preference.
Pull tabs are placed on the front and back of the collar to help the runner when it comes to putting on and removing this running shoe.
