New Balance 009 V1 Review
Back in 1906, an Irish immigrant by the name of William J. Riley founded the New Balance Arch Support Company in Boston, Massachusets. At first, he was only designing and manufacturing arch supports and other accessories, and his first a flexible arch support (and the name of his company) was inspired by the chickens he had in his yard.
That’s right. He came up with the name of the Company – New Balance after observing chickens in his yard. Apparently, the chicken’s three-pronged foot resulted in perfect balance, so he designed three support points in the shoes to provide greater balance and comfort. Those three support points are the basis of the New Balance shoemaking, and most of the sneakers manufactured in the NB Company have those points as a guide rule.
Today they’re one of the most beloved brands of footwear, and the Company itself endorses plenty of clubs, athletes and national sports teams.
But for now, let’s look at the New Balance Women’s 009 V1 sneakers and we hope that you’ll like it.
Shaft measures approximately low-top from arch
Runs a half size smaller
So, it doesn’t matter if you use them for running marathons or for your game of racketball, injuries can occur at any time, but this particular technology helps you to avoid them as much as possible. REVLite offers a lightweight feel, without minimizing the construction or sacrificing the underfoot cushioning or stability within the shoe. There’s also padding in the footbed in the sneakers, and the entire footbed is lined with a synthetic lining that helps with the comfort.
The collar and tongue of the sneaker are also padded for extra comfort and stability, and besides the usual synthetic material, visible mess hugs big portion of the upper. The mesh lining is visible at the front of the sneakers, around the collar and on the tongue too. The letter N that stems from the name of the company - New Balance is visible on the side of the upper, while the lacing system is classic and made with thin laces. Laces are coordinated with the color of the upper, and beside the letter N that’s been stitched to the side, everything in the upper has a uniformed color pattern. Oh, and the shaft measures approximately low-top from the arch of the sneaker.
And it makes sense actually. Because this is a running style sneaker, the outsole and upper are first to be damaged after prolonged wearing. So, the durability is high in the 009 V1 sneakers, as it should be. They should remain in good condition after they’ve been used on several types of terrains and much weather condition’s. But the upper has a noticeable mesh that ensures moisture-wicking properties, and the upper is made from highly durable rubber that can withstand any type of terrain.
They’ll quickly become your constant companion at the gym and on your daily jog in the park. You’ll be highly impressed with the comfort and support that they have to offer, and the flexibility and fit are not looking all that bad either. But the style is the most prominent feature of the shoes. Its retro-inspired and the shoe have the classic lines with a dash of soft pastille colors in the upper. Why go with flashy and unpleasant colors when you can maintain the style with much warmer tones and still look amazing.
