Updates to New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr v2 HypoKnit

  • This road running shoe is crafted to accommodate runners with neutral foot motion. It features the data-driven midsole design that provides superior cushioning and flexibility throughout the run. The laser-engraved Fresh Foam technology also delivers the highest level of comfort, especially when doing high-impact activities.
  • Another notable feature of the shoe is the HypoKnit upper. It provides the foot a lightweight and more dynamic fit. 

Size and fit

The New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr v2 HypoKnit utilizes the standard running shoe measurements. It is strategically made to fit true to size.  When it comes to the width, the variants are D – Medium and 2E Wide for men and B – Medium and D- Wide for women. With the available width profiles, it is sure to comfortably accommodate medium-footer runners.

Outsole

Like the New Balance 880 v8, durable rubber is integrated into the outsole of the New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr v2 HypoKnit. The primary purpose of this material is to provide the right amount of grip needed on a wide variety of paved surfaces. It also offers added durability to the platform.

Midsole

The Fresh Foam midsole is used in crafting the shoe. This is vital in absorbing impact shock during heel strike. As a result, a more comfortable running experience is enjoyed by the user.

Added flexibility is also offered by the laser-engraved cushioning. This component of the New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr v2 HypoKnit also encourages a bouncier energy return.

Upper

In the upper of the shoe is the HypoKnit upper. It provides a sock-like fit for a more comfortable yet supportive structure. This material does not affect the shoe’s overall breathability and comfort. 

There are also perforations in the upper of the Fresh Foam Lazr v2 HypoKnit that provide the foot proper ventilation. These holes are significant in allowing fresh air to flow and circulate in the foot chamber. As a result, heat is dispersed during the activity, making the foot fresh and dry at all times.

A TPU heel counter is also integrated into the Fresh Foam Lazr v2 HypoKnit. The primary focus of this material is to secure the heel while running.
