Good to know
Stability and motion control add-ons are uncommon for workout shoes and are never present in CrossFit or weightlifting footwear. They are mostly found in walking shoes where the gait is easier to correct.
Training footwear typically weighs between 200g and 300g per shoe to accommodate agile workouts. Minimalist trainers go as low as 150g, while weightlifting shoes can go as high as 500g.

Updates to New Balance FuelCore NERGIZE
- The New Balance FuelCore NERGIZE is a workout shoe designed to meet the unique needs of active women. It is made of lightweight materials that help keep the user moving. The textured mesh upper keeps the inside of the trainer well-ventilated. It uses laces and an elastic strap to deliver a snug fit to the midfoot.
- The footwear employs the REVlite midsole. This foam cushioning is as responsive and durable as foams that are 30% heavier. On top of it is the NB memory sole comfort insert which aims to make the wearing experience more enjoyable.
- As for the outsole, it is made from durable rubber. It has flex grooves that provide forefoot flexibility. It also delivers traction on various kinds of surfaces.
New Balance FuelCore NERGIZE size and fit
The New Balance FuelCore NERGIZE is designed for women. Lengthwise, it tends to run on the small side. Consumers may need to go half- or a full size up to obtain a comfortable fit. The footwear is available in B - Medium and D - Wide width options.
Some areas of the REVlite foam are exposed and serve as part of the outsole. Rubber pods are used in the high wear areas to protect against abrasion. This type of construction maintains the lightweight nature of the product without compromising the traction of the outsole.
Flex grooves adorn the forefoot section of the New Balance FuelCore NERGIZE. These furrows aid in the proper flexion of the foot. The tread pattern on the outsole also enhances the traction of the rubber.
The New Balance FuelCore NERGIZE employs the REVlite midsole. This proprietary compound is engineered to be as responsive and durable as foams that are 30% heavier. This lightweight platform attenuates shock and provides stability to the wearer.
Inside the footgear is a removable memory foam insole. This component adds another layer of protection and comfort without putting more weight on the shoe.
The upper of the New Balance FuelCore NERGIZE is made of textured mesh. The newer models feature a soft, closely-knit material on the midfoot and the forefoot for a sleeker look. Both fabrics are lightweight and breathable, keeping the foot chamber ventilated. Its texture also gives the upper a unique look.
It features a lace-up system and an elastic band at the midfoot area. The laces allow users to tune in the fit for a customized feel. The elastic band adds to the snugness of the upper.
The V-dip in the collar makes for unhindered ankle movements. It also allows the footwear to be worn or taken off with ease.
Special editions of the New Balance FuelCore NERGIZE
Aside from the various colorways available for the New Balance FuelCore NERGIZE, this model also comes in fresh editions. The new versions use the same sole technologies as the original, but the upper has been updated.
The upper of the model is made of two materials, neoprene on the back and tightly woven mesh at the forefoot. Aside from the fabrics used at the top, what sets this variety apart is the presence of metallic and geometric accents. The FuelCore NERGIZE Geo Metallic comes in two colors: Pigment with metallic gold and Seasalt with metallic gold. The first has gold geometric patterns on the tongue and the midfoot band is metallic. As for the latter, the metallic geometric patterns are present on the back panel and the instep. There is also a gold band across the midfoot.
New Balance collaborated with Disney for the later’s 90th anniversary and released several refreshed models which include the FuelCore NERGIZE Disney. Just by looking at this model, it is easy to see that it pays homage to Minnie Mouse, one of Disney’s most iconic characters. Minnie is known for her red dress and bow with white polka dots. The polka dot pattern on this model is prominent throughout the upper, while the red band represents the red dress at the midfoot. Red is also used in the outsole of this trainer. If those aren’t dead giveaways for its Disney roots, there’s a bow charm on the laces, a Minnie silhouette on the instep, and the insole not only has the polka dot design, but there’s also ‘Disney x New Balance’ written on it.
