Can’t Miss: New Balance introduces their All-Terrain collection
As we pack our white sneakers for the holidays, more and more brands are bring their wares to the outdoors. This season, New Balance brings their running innovations to the outdoors with their All Terrain Collection.
While we know how well New Balance performs on the road, the new footwear and apparel collection was made with a careful approach to fit, construction built with the right technology and fabrication. On the footwear front, New Balance introduces us to the Fresh Foam Hierro v5 and the 850AT. While the Fresh Foam Hierro has been around for quite a while, the Hierro v5’s got so much under the hood to make it worth looking at. Let’s begin with the the Fresh Foam X midsole. An improved Fresh Foam midsole is made with all forms of terrain in mind, with its wider base. That coupled with a vibram MegaGrip outsole make for a pretty solid base.
But the innovations don’t end there. The shroud-like upper keeps dirt and grit away with a fully functional inner tongue and half-seamed outer veil. This engineered mesh upper also helps in draining the shoe and keeping it breathable no matter what the condition may be. The Hierro v5 also features ToeProtect, which is a rubberized toe guard built for the rough terrains. The New Balance Fresh Foam Hierro v5 is set to release this Friday, November 1st.
The New Balance Fresh Foam Hierro v5 will be available at the following locations: New Balance (Glorietta, Trinoma, ATC, BHS, Cebu, Marquee Mall), The Athlete’s Foot (Glorietta, Cebu, Rockwell, Ayala Bay), Sole Academy, Capital, urbanAthletics, Akimbo, Zeus, and Lazada.
Also releasing this November is the Fresh Foam 850AT. Just like the Hierro v5, the 850AT also utilizes the same midsole/outsole tooling. The real change here is the shoes upper. New Balance took inspiration from the original 850, with its alternative branding on the heel, organic panel design and nylon webbing. The 850AT also utilizes a rubber tip for durability, a heel outrigger for a smoother landing and heel loops for easy entry. The red colorway (above) is set to release on Saturday, November 2nd to be followed up by the Yellow and Blue colorways at a later date.
The New Balance Fresh Foam 850AT will be available at the following locations: New Balance (Glorietta, Trinoma, ATC, BHS, Cebu, Marquee Mall), The Athlete’s Foot (Glorietta, Cebu, Rockwell, Ayala Bay), Sole Academy, Capital, urbanAthletics, Akimbo, Zeus, and Lazada.
