Rubber is placed on the forefoot and heel. These add-ons prevent the high-wear sections from succumbing to the debilitating effects of surface contact and continued use.

FuelCore Coast v4 provides efficient cushioning

EVA is the New Balance FuelCore Coast v4’s cushioning unit. It has a dual-density nature that contributes to a more efficient performance on the roads. A soft segment cushions the foot and attenuates impact shock while a firm portion handles forward propulsion.

The NB Response 2.0 is a sockliner that adds a bit more cushioning for the underfoot. It doesn’t sacrifice the weight and flexibility of the platform.

Allows airflow in the foot-chamber

A standard mesh is used for the forefoot section of the upper unit. This flexible textile has visible breathing pores that accommodate air in and through the foot-chamber.

Running from the midfoot to the heel is a stretchy and smooth fabric. Its job is to deliver a form-fitting wrap. It has lightly padded sections that hold the foot in place.

Slip-on road companion
