New Balance TRNR: An adaptive workout companion

The New Balance TRNR looks like an amalgamation of the brand's athletic and lifestyle shoes. This New Balance training shoe looks sleek and well-made, making it suitable for casual, everyday wear. However, it is equipped with various technologies and features that provide wearers with a secure lockdown and underfoot protection.

Those who might benefit from wearing the New Balance TRNR include:

  • athletes who train on concrete, polished indoor floors, or even rubber gym mats;
  • people who don't like changing shoes after workouts;
  • individuals who won't sacrifice style for functionality;
  • and folks who are new to getting fit.

What to expect from the New Balance TRNR

The New Balance TRNR features a multi-directional rubber outsole for superior grip regardless if you train indoors or outdoors. The lightweight DynaSoft cushioning dampens the force of impact when jumping or running, so expect no knee pain during workouts.

As for the top, the mesh allows for the foot to breathe, but what sets it apart to other New Balance cross-trainers is the two sets of fins that integrate with eyelets. These fins improve the lateral support at the forefoot section.
