Who should NOT buy this trainer from New Balance

Quite obviously, those who do intense feet-focused workouts such as jogs and sprints are not going to be happy with the Nergize Sport. The same can be said for many other New Balance trainers. It's helpful to go for shoes from other brands such as the Metcon 7 from Nike or the Reebok Nano X2

Light and comfortable, that's what the Nergize Sport is all about!

Fitness enthusiasts say that this New Balance training shoe delivers comfort. Even if you stand in this shoe for hours, there will be no pain because of how cushy it is. It's really light, too; so you get an almost barefoot feel with this.

However, it must be noted the typical version of this shoe can be a little too narrow. Luckily, this shoe is available in especially wide versions so wide-footers are still able to enjoy this.

Supportive and stable, yes it is!

Even though the shoe is light, the materials that make up the upper are responsive enough to keep the foot in place according to wearers. The laces are also secure enough not to get undone quite easily. Because of this, the shoe effectively gets rid of wobbliness even during the execution of rigorous exercises. If you want to focus on your workouts without having to worry about slips and falls, then the Nergize Sport is the one for you.
