New Balance Fresh Foam “Sweatshirt”, running in the street.

Clearly, brands are increasingly taking their most technical footwear out into the streets. With models like the Flyknit Racer by Nike or the Ultraboost by adidas, there is no denying this fact.

Now, it’s New Balance’s turn with their 1980 Fresh Foam Zante “Sweatshirt”. These sneakers come from the running world, and they have been treated with a new colourway matching the most urban looks.

New Balance Fresh Foam “Sweatshirt”

The advantages of this model are endless. Let’s begin with the upper: it is manufactured with the Fantom Fit technology, which uses several thin layers of textile material, thus avoiding seams. The result offers advantages like great stability, durability and comfort.


On the other hand, the flashy midsole of the New Balance 1980 Fresh Foam Zante uses the Fresh Foam technology. An extra light and soft foam reduces the total weight of the sneaker and also greatly improves the cushioning.


New Balance ML 1980 AB

Grey and maroon, a combination that is always a success in footwear, are the chosen colors for the upper of the New Balance ML 1980 AB.


Following the “Colour Block” philosophy, colors are set completely apart. Grey covers the foremost part, made of a textile that reminds us of sweatshirts. That’s where the name of the pack, “Sweatshirt”, comes from.


New Balance ML 1980 AN

The second model shares the grey on the toe area, but swaps maroon for navy.


On these New Balance ML 1980 AN the whole upper stands out upon the white Fresh Foam midsole. A detail that shouldn’t be overlooked is the outer sole, in a Gumsole color that gives the sneaker an elegant touch.


The big advantage of the technical models is their comfort. If you want, you can get your pair now at our New Balance section.
