Introducing the new New Balance Vongo!
Two years ago New Balance introduced it’s new cushion Fresh Foam as a way to meet the need for a responsive yet cushioned ride. With the Vongo, New Balance is looking to bridge the gap between cushion and stability with a smooth and stable ride with every stride. The Fresh Foam Vongo was carefully designed for that runner who doesn’t want to stray from the cushioning so characteristic of the Fresh Foam collection, but needs a greater level of support. It maintains that soft and smooth underfoot feel, but in an entirely new and unique manner for the stability category.
Like the rest of the Fresh Foam family the Vongo comes with a one piece midsole and a new dual density designed medial post to provide a stable ride. Every element of this shoe was designed to add to its supportive function; aggressive medial flare, midsole emboss on the top and bottom lateral side, medial “overstuff,” an outsole channel, and the use of two different outsole rubber compounds all work together to provide a unique system of support. Even the upper has been designed for support with it’s applied perforations and emboss patterns around the saddle for tailored medial/lateral flexibility.
