New Balance W490v5 Women’s Running Shoes
Go faster, go farther in the New Balance W490v5 Running Shoe for women. A NB 1.0 Response insert and an Acteva midsole feature for unrivalled responsiveness and underfoot comfort.
Mesh uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. Perforations in the fabric increase airflow to create a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. Synthetic overlays swathe the midfoot to promote lockdown; they help to anchor you to the midsole and reduce in-shoe slippage so that you can enjoy smooth, distraction-free strides. The padded tongue and heel collar supply soft support, reducing pressure on the foot to minimise the risk of rubbing and blisters; because we know how those can ruin your day.
A NB Response 1.0 performance insert lies atop a feathery midsole to gift you with an extra layer of responsive protection, increasing energy-return to reduce the use of superfluous muscle power; diminishing fatigue and keeping you motivated for longer. ACTEVA resides in the midsole. 12% lighter than standard midsole foams and extremely durable, it provides you with a reliable and long-lasting platform of protection; helping to spare your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving surfaces.
A rubber outsole completes the 490v5, supplying multi-directional grip across every road surface. N-Durance, a super durable rubber compound, strategically adorns the heel and forefoot to resist the traumas of heel-strike and toe-off. Flex grooves encourage natural foot flexion, so you can enjoy smooth and easy, unhindered strides.
