New Balance’s Fresh Foam More Trail V1 Is Its Most Responsive Running Shoe Ever

New Balance is always finding ways to innovate on its already-established sneaker lineup, especially in terms of performance. While it might now come as a surprise, the brand has already usurped last week’s Fuel Cell release with it’s most responsive trail running sneaker, the Fresh Foam More Trail V1.

Despite its abnormal name, the Fresh Foam More Trail V1’s ambitious monicker is actually a great explanation of what makes it so special. To make it one of New Balance’s most capable runners, the brand has incorporated a durable Vibram outsole, breathable mesh upper, and a plush, precise FRESH FOAMx midsole for cutting-edge cushioning while you take on the trail. Since adaptability within the outdoor environment is one of running’s biggest challenges, a durable water repellent (DWR) treatment has also been applied to the shoe’s exterior, providing increased moisture protection. Head to New Balance’s website to pick up a pair of your own for around $180.
