Traditional does not mean boring. Heck, traditional can even be innovating. New Balance is proving this with the 1260 v4 stability running shoe. Though many runners nowadays might look at stability shoes as clunky and ugly, the 1260 v4 is far from this.
Like the v3, it sports an 8mm offset allowing for a more efficient stride on your runs. The big innovation in this traditional looking shoe is a new technology by New Balance called Post Applied. In a nutshell this means that both the midsole and the medial post have a more consistent density, resulting in a more reliable support and a smoother ride.
All in all the New Balance 1260 v4 looks sharp and yes, fast, which is partly due to the vivid coloring and the lightweight mesh upper material. If the 1260 v4 sets the pace for new traditional stability and supportive cushioning, than bring it on!
