New Balance Rush Slip-On History
The New Balance Rush Slip-On was released in the latter half of 2016. It is inspired by the design of the New Balance Rush running shoe with its lightweight build, deconstructed heel counter, and Revlite midsole. The New Balance Rush was one of the first models in New Balance’s Vazee collection—later on, rebranded as FuelCore—and was specifically designed to be a more budget-friendly counterpart to the Pace.
The New Balance Rush offers a smooth transition and the latest release, the FuelCore Rush v3, features a heel counter that extends to the arch. Its outsole also goes the entire length of the shoe’s medial side which adds more stability to the footwear while remaining neutral.
- The New Balance Rush Slip-On is made of a stretchy textile upper, leather or suede strap (depending on the colorway), and a rubber outsole.
- The pattern on the textile upper differs depending on the colorway.
