The New Balance 769 is a running shoe that has a number of technologically advanced features that enhance comfort, smooth ride transition, safety and multi-surface conditions for running. This sneaker is ideal for all joggers due to its high tech features and its low price tag.
If we start with the foundation, the footprint maintains the stylish, highly efficient and anatomically designed outsole for a smoother transition from heel to toe. The N-durance heel crash pad is a rubber compound for maximum durability in high wear conditions. To maintain the best mid-foot torsional control, the stability web is located just below the shoe in the mid section. It is a structured lightweight arch support that provides rigidity and prevents the mid foot from flexing too much. Premium blown rubber in the forefoot gives a soft ride and better flexibility along with the placement of the flex grooves which follow the natural flex pattern of the foot.
The mid sole is constructed using Acteva Lite technology which is premium light weight foam with optimal compression properties. It is significantly lighter than standard foam. The heel section is also outfitted with Absorb DTS technology which stand for Dynamic Transition System. It combines absorb foam and Absorb SBS to provide optimal cushioning and a smooth transition on when the heel impacts the surface. The layering of Absorb foam and Absord SBS creates a durable long lasting system. For stability the TS2 medial technology is a multi-density support that enables a smooth transition once the heel impacts the surface to when the toe propels you forward. The New Balance 769, just like its predecessors offers multiple width bottoms to accommodate a perfect fit for any foot type.
When the New Balance 769 was being designed, to ensure comfort the collar foam was installed in the topline collar with two densities. A soft foam in the collar closest to the skin and a hard foam behind to ensure that sneaker maintained its structure. On the side we continue to use the N-lock technology which is a combined locking and webbing mechanism that provides for an optimal support fit and security. Just above the mid-sole is the full length absorb strobe board insert that gives maximum comfort from heel to toe. Our sure lace system ensures an optimal fit and our high quality breathable mesh system ensures that air circulates properly while keeping your feet cool and dry.
Reflectors have been applied on all sides of the sneakers to ensure full night time visibility. This will ensure your safety should you decide to jog at nights with your New Balance 769. Our phantom liner is an internal liner that is engineered with a unique lasting material that combines seams and panels for ultimate comfort. Within the phantom liner is our lightning dry technology which keeps moisture away from the skin even under the most intense conditions.
