Description New Balance presents our lightest trainer yet! Engineered from the ground up, the neutral 890 is a new kind of lightweight shoe, each part designed with purpose. The full ground contact outsole is just as compatible with midfoot and forefoot strikes as it is with a traditional heel strike. Innovative diamond shapes cut in relief from the extra-durable REVlite midsole provide as much function as fashion, and the coordinating diamond motif on the outsole helps with grip and transition. It's also an award-winner: the 890 was named "Gear of the Year" in Outside magazine's spring 2011 Gear Guide.
Blown Rubber Forefoot for lightweight cushioning
Innovative REVlite midsole provides premium responsiveness and durability at a 30% lighter weight than other foams with comparable performance
ABZORB® cushioning in the midfoot provides exceptional shock absorption
Synthetic/Mesh upper provides lightweight comfort and support
Ndurance® rubber compound for maximum outsole durability
Welded seams for no-sew material application
Flat, soft laces slide through uniquely flat lacing holes, locking them in place and preventing top-of-foot discomfort
Created to meet the competitive requirements of world-class runner and Team New Balance member Andy Baddeley, whose name appears on the men's 890
The stated weight of the men's 890 shoe (9.7oz and 275g) applies to men's size 9.5 D.
