Updates to New Balance Fresh Foam Zante Trainer
- The New Balance Fresh Foam Zante Trainer is a trendy workout shoe for both men and women. It is equipped with lightweight materials like the knitted upper fabric that promote flexibility and movement. It also features an integrated webbed lacing structure that provides the foot with a dynamic fit.
- The sole unit is made of the proprietary Fresh Foam midsole which is thick, yet lightweight. It keeps the foot comfortable by absorbing shock. The underside is lined with solid rubber with a multi-directional tread pattern for flexibility and traction
New Balance Fresh Foam Zante Trainer size and fit
The New Balance Fresh Foam Zante Trainer is obtainable in both men’s and women’s versions. It comes in US sizes 7 to 15 for gentlemen and 5 to 12 for ladies, including half and full sizes for both. As for the width, it is available in D - Medium and 2E - Wide for men and B - Medium and D - Wide for women. The knitted upper, along with the integrated webbing system, provides the midfoot with a snug and supportive fit.
The New Balance Fresh Foam Zante Trainer employs a solid rubber outsole. It features omni-directional treads that provide traction on slick gym floors. The grooves on the underside also help with the flexibility of the sole unit, promoting natural foot bending.
Providing comfortable protection against impact is the Fresh Foam midsole. This plush platform is crafted from a single piece of foam that has a 6-mm offset that helps in lessening stress on the Achilles tendon.
Inside the New Balance Fresh Foam Zante Trainer is the NB Response 2.0 performance insert. This element enhances the support and shock absorption provided by the primary midsole.
The upper of the New Balance Foam Zante Trainer is made of mesh. This fabric is lightweight and breathable but is constructed to deliver a dynamic fit which means it adjusts to movements and natural expansion of the foot.
This pair of New Balance training shoes sports a slip-on style for quick on-and-off action. The sock-like collar is stretchy to accommodate the foot coming inside or out. It also goes back to its original size to prevent the foot from accidentally slipping out.
If a tighter fit is needed, the lacing system can be utilized. The lace-up structure features an integrated webbing system which employs a series of flat strings that wrap the medial and lateral sides of the midfoot to increase support needed for side-to-side movements.
