Recently, New Balance expanded its trail running shoe collection with a new flagship series, long traded as the Summit Unknown Trail Running Shoes (TR1400). According to the developers, the new model was developed based on the strengths of the popular RC 1400 running shoe and elements of the Vazee Summit sole, thus creating a lightweight, durable and well-ventilated pair of shoes with a high level of vertical shock absorption and a fairly tenacious outsole. for various types of surfaces.
The upper is made primarily of soft and hydrophobic mesh, which is complemented by a supportive and reinforcing carcass, as well as dense TPU overlays at the toe and heel. The lacing system has a classic structure, the holes are reinforced with a layer of polyurethane. The inside of the shoe features a soft, quick-drying mesh lining and an anatomical cushioning foam insole that provides partial heel and arch support.
The outsole of the Summit Unknown running shoe is based on a midsole made of REVlite cushioning, which is lighter than conventional EVA and retains its cushioning properties longer. In addition, the design of the sole uses a full-length TPU arch support, which provides the necessary rigidity and protection from sharp stones, as well as an outsole made of wear-resistant TPU blend. Heel to toe drop is only 10mm.
At this stage, the New Balance Summit Unknown Trail Running Shoes are available in men’s and women’s styles, with a pair of men’s running shoes weighing in at an average size of 488 grams. You can order sneakers on the manufacturer’s website, or through a showcase on amazon, where the price varies from 88 to 110 US dollars.
