New Balance is getting in on the chunky sole trend with its latest Fresh Foam More model in the high-top version. The footwear brand calls it an “ultra-modern mashup combining massive plushness with wild head-turning style.” And they’re absolutely right, this silhouette is as funky as it gets for the athletic wear label with its Frankenstein-style upper and super robust midsole.
Like the imposing silhouette’s first iteration (originally dubbed the PRJ 2.0), the Fresh Foam More employs a meaty sole unit for maximum cushioning, set beneath a mildly techy upper. Graph line details give the shoe a geometrically stylized look which is accentuated by the vibrant panels of yellow, red and silver. A black striped detail with branding also gives the iteration a sleek update. Additionally, NB calls the “Summer Fog” and “Sulpher Yellow” arcade colors which hints at the silhouette’s retro yet futuristic feel.
The shoe is available now at New Balance’s official shopping site for $179.99 USD.
