Harmonising Running & Trail For 2019
Conceived in 1989, New Balance’s 801 sneaker strived to unite the worlds of running and trail. The result? A first of its kind. A hybrid design with dual-purpose; equally suited to the city streets and off-trail terrain. For 2019, the Boston-based sportswear brand update the pioneering sneaker with contemporary appeal.
This season’s 801 sneaker boasts the same dual-design identity as the original. Imagined in a grey, blue and lime mash up, the trainer sees running like sensibilities up top, while below, hiking-like elements are harnessed. Across the upper, mesh and synthetic leather cast a tonal scene, empowering breathability with each and every step. Detail wise, vibrant pops to the sidewall articulate New Balance’s esteemed identity, teamed alongside an ‘All Terrain’ statement to the heel.
But, the 801 sneaker’s real sense of ‘new’ conforms underfoot thanks to New Balance’s dual-density ABZORB midsole. This foam insert promises to provide a supreme blend of cushioning and compression, while offering slip-resistant rubber to the style. Additionally, the robust construction features an intricate traction pattern to its surface, delivering superlative grip through every adventure.
With New Balance’s cutting-edge technology on side and a forward-thinking mindset reinstated, the new and improved 801 sneaker guarantees superlative performance. From the streets, to the trail and everywhere in-between, this shoe has you covered. See for yourself by shopping the trail-running hybrid in-store or online at Aphrodite.
