New Balance Fresh Foam X Balos Initial Video Review

Video by Sam Winebaum

New Balance Fresh Foam X Balos ($200)

In the video below,  I detail the Balos and take it for an initial 10K run commenting on Fit and Ride. I also compare to the adidas Supernova Prima and 361 Eleos which are of similar construction and materials as well as New Balance's More v4 and 1080 v13

Fresh Foam Balos Initial Video Review (21:57)

The Balos has a soft PEBA /EVA blend midsole stacked big (38.5mm heel / 32.5 mm forefoot) and light at 8.6 oz / 243g US 8.5 sampl

It has a very pronounced rocker and thick firm black heel rubber to keep the softness from bottoming out and moving forward in key rear and front wear areas. The rest of the midsole is an outsole grade EVA.

The upper is a soft pliable and very supportive mono mesh backed inside with a grid of underlays. 

Balos has a lightly padded stretch knit tongue with gusset and plush rear collars

$200. Available August 2024.
