New Balance Men's 1400v6 Running Shoe
REVlite midsole and enhanced stability of a welded upper, responsive cushioning, or ultralight cushioning. Those things are all selling points on their own but the combination of those materials run deeper than the sum of their parts, and not just because they're the tried and tested features that hold up to their expectations. Early on the cushioning feels nice and plush and perhaps ideal for lounging around, comfortable for the back and forth walk from the couch to the fridge, and before we know it we're all comatose in potato chips which is of course where the resistance must be realized. Luckily the shoe engenders the motivation to run a 5k or a marathon, or make it through speed intervals. If we're succumbing to sloth-like slumber it may as well be earned. Six years ago, New Balance debuted the 1400 series as their answer to the minimalist question. On the sixth version, the exciting news is it has been definitively answered.
The updated mesh upper with no-sew construction is lightweight, breathable and reduces irritation.
