Basic grip

The NB Cush+ 715 v4 doesn’t have an outsole as such. It only features rubber pods in the forefoot and heel areas to help with traction. However, it may not be your best friend in wet and slippery conditions.

Unhindered foot flexibility

The entire length of the sole is lined with multi-directional flex grooves. Shallower in some parts and deeper in others, it makes sure the trainer bends together with the foot. That way, a free and natural movement is promoted.

The brand’s softest cushioning

The shoe uses two layers of padding to make sure the foot stays comfortably supported:

The CUSH+ foam makes up the bulk of the midsole. It is described as the plushest cushioning technology in the brand’s array, 13% softer than any other NB foam.

It is also one of the lightest. The choice of CUSH+ is explained by the purpose of the shoe: it must be comfortable enough for both gym and all-day wear.

The Memory Sole Comfort Insert acts as an additional buffer between the foot and the midsole. It adapts to the individual foot shape for enhanced comfort.

The New Balance Cush+ 715 v4's breathable support

Nearly one-piece mesh fabric covers the upper unit. Its pores promote airflow, making the shoe suitable for sweaty gym sessions and warm sunny days.
