Originally creating and producting orthopaedic insoles at the beginning of the 20th century, New Balance launched the first running shoe in 1961 available in a variety of widths, the Trackster. A real revolution in the running world, the brand became a reference in the sports world. With a strong reputation thanks to their quality of their products and technical performance, New Balance continues today to design high-tech, innovative trainers.
The famous pair of NEW BALANCE U420 in navy. This is probably the most popular model . With jeans, chino, shorts or sports trousers, the U420 always does the job.
These versatile men's sneakers are made entirely of leather with neutral colours that will match your wardrobe perfectly. Contrasting colours on the laces, lining and logo trim punctuate the look of this model, while the streamlined N logo completes the look with a classic brand touch.
This model is particularly unusual for the brand. The CRT 300s are in place more to compete with the Stan Smiths than anything else in my opinion. They are nonetheless original and pleasing to the eye. I like the vintage look of the shoes, like an old tennis shoe from the 80s.
Two-material trainers in suede and mesh, with a reinforced round toe. They have 7 eyelets with a lace through, logo stitched on the sides and a brand name on the tongue. Fabric insole and notched rubber outsole.

Be original, try this pair of ML373 in red, you won't be disappointed with the result.

How to know if your New Balance shoes are real ?
New Balance trainers have their special logos on the counter, tongue, side of the shoe and sole, as well as on the outsole and insole. The N logo on the side of the trainer is made in the form of a crest.
The original trainers have a soft foam sole that can be easily pressed and then returns to its original shape. The outsole is made of rubber. The insole of the original New Balance trainers contains perforations, a logo, and information about the size and model.
Which New Balance for the marathon?
Comfort and cushioning:Fresh Foam
This concept which equips the sole of the range is a sort of light foam in "3D" which offers a soft but reactive cushioning if you push it a little. Overall, the "ideal" shoe for the inside of the peloton would be the 1080 Fresh Foam. Everything is done to make the shoe feel comfortable with a mesh weave that adapts to the shape of the foot, and is therefore also forgiving.
If you want to keep comfort but gain dynamism (higher average speed), the Boracay will be a good ally. The drop is 4mm (beware of the adaptation time if you come from a drop above 8mm) and the product is lighter.
For "performers" who want a dynamic shoe but still want some protection, the Zante (6mm drop) will suit neutral runners (otherwise, beware of stability) who are used to models that are rather close to the ground. It could be for a runner who wants a competition shoe but is a little afraid of the shocks over the kilometres.
Stability and dynamism : Vazee
Vazee shoes are made of RevLite soles, which are very responsive. Less suitable for large sizes (at least over long distances), they will appeal to those who like firmness. The latest 2090 can be tried on a marathon for an average size who likes reactivity if the need arises, but whose comfort is important.
A good compromise would be the Vazee Prism, whose 8mm drop and light midfoot support make the product tolerable, especially when the stride deteriorates. The characteristics of and responsiveness are good and the model can be pushed without problems.
In the event of wet weather (although not in this list), the 1500v2 offers similar characteristics but a better sole for this eventuality.

How to maintain your New Balance?
New Balance in leather type NB574
Once waterproofed, if your beautiful New Balance shoes get stained, the first solution is to wipe the area with a soft damp cloth without rubbing too much. If the stain persists, a little Marseille soap will do the trick. The ultimate solution is to use a special professional leather product. To make the whole thing shine after cleaning, baby oil or moisturiser will do the job.
New Balance in nubuck type ML574
The maintenance of a New Balance in Nubuck is no more complicated, although it requires a precise methodology. A first pass with a dry toothbrush on the spoiled areas will allow to rough up the work.

Canvas and synthetic shoes will easily pass the test of machine washing, provided of course that they are run on a gentle programme and not more than 30°. A little stain remover before washing can remove stubborn stains.
