New Balance 998

New Balance came up with another classically style running shoe and called it New Balance 998 (NB 998). It takes the shoe up a notch with the 1993 NB 998 silhouette and wraps it in retro style.

The NB 998 still sports the ABZORB cushioning. This material absorbs shock and dissipates energy therefore it softens the impact forces footstrike after footstrike. The shoe’s last is the SL-1. This last has a typical forefoot and toebox design which provides a conventional fit through the shank, recommended for runners with normal to low arches. The ENCAP midsole material in the heel cushions heel strike and gives plenty of stability. It is also very durable, great for heavy heel strikers.

The outsole in the forefoot area is made up blown rubber known for its cushioning abilities and responsiveness. It also allows the foot to flex normally. The high-wear areas of the outsole are made up of carbon rubber. It gives long-wearing durability to the shoes. The combination of both materials in the outsole makes NB 998 great for on and off road conditions.

Many wear-testers and reviewers are pleased after wearing the New Balance 998. Aside from the good looks, many appreciate the comfort they are getting from this pair. They also find the shoe very durable and recommend it for high-mileage training. They also reported the responsiveness of the shoe.

Continuing to be a crowd pleaser, the NB 998 was reborn as part of the Super Team 33 Luggage collections. It also raises the American flag with the insignia in the tongue that says “Made in USA.”
