New Balance OMN1S Low: A great comeback for NB

The low-top version of the New Balance OMN1S features innovative technologies that offer the following:

Superior comfort and speed. The full-length FuelCell foam in the midsole of this NB model provides both impact protection and maximum energy returns on the hardwood.

Locked-in fit and stability. The combined power of this low-top shoe's FitWeave upper and midfoot band ensures a secure fit. Support is reinforced by the shoe's 3D Ultra Heel. 

NB OMN1S: Why the low version?

The popularity of low-top basketball shoes in the NBA and the sport in general is attributed to Kobe Bryant, who won many games in his signature low-tops. Do low-top shoes improve performance? Science says no. Why then did NB decide to create a low version of the OMN1S? According to the company's design director for basketball, a lot of people comment on the brand's social media accounts that they want low-tops added to the OMN1S collection. New Balance is indeed a company that is sensitive to the demands of its market.
