Delivers platform flexibility
A rubber compound makes up the outsole unit of the New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr Sport. It covers the entire length of the midsole, acting as a barrier against abrasive surfaces.
This durable rubber material is also placed in the outsole of the New Balance 990 v4. Hexagonal patterns form multangular grooves that heighten platform flexibility and the natural bending capacity of the wearer’s foot.
Lazr Sport provides responsive cushioning
Fresh Foam is a full-length compound that’s meant to provide cushioning for the underside of the foot. It’s also responsible for mitigating the impact forces generated by the foot-strike.
The sides have been laser-engraved. The purpose of such a design is to make the material more flexible and more capable of cushioning the foot as it lands on the ground.
The medial and lateral sections of the midsole slightly extend upward. These ‘walls’ hold the foot in place and prevent in-shoe quavering.
The front section of the New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr Sport’s upper unit makes use of suede. It’s a soft yet sturdy material. It accommodates the natural motion of the foot.
New Balance Fresh Foam Lazr Sport offers sock-like fit
A stretchy mesh fills the rest of the upper. It is configured into a one-piece unit that’s free of seams, thus potentially offering a sock-like fit.
A ghillie lacing system with discrete eyelets brings a relaxed coverage. It doesn’t have the bunched-up feel of the regular crisscross lacing arrangement.
Pull tabs are placed at the back and front of the collar. These loops are there to facilitate a quick and easy on-and-off.
