The New Balance 1260 v4 is the premium stability running shoe from Boston's manufacturer featuring maximum support for overpronators.
Besides better cushioning and more stability, this version upgrades its style with vibrant colors and new materials. Although not a racing one, this new version features a more agressive look using new 3D screen-printed Fantom Fit technology with no-sew overlays and supportive structures on the breathable air mesh.
Cushioning system has been reengineered with latest technologies from New Balance and it is composed of well known N2 in the heel, durable ABZORB® through the midfoot and responsive ACTEVA™ LITE (24% lighter than standard foam) in the forefoot.
Support system has been also improved with two key features: asymmetrical heel counter (Asym Counter) to prevent pronation sooner and the redesigned T-BEAM shank which delivers torsional stability through the midfoot.
As a summary: outstanding cushioning with even smoother and more consistent support with just 8mm drop.
