Engineered Mesh Upper
Constructed with a new engineered mesh, the New Balance Hierro v6 Running Shoes wrap the foot in breathable comfort whilst providing a more secure, locked-down fit. The lightweight, breathable mesh forefoot allows cool air to flow through the shoe removing uncomfortable heat build-up and regulating internal temperature to create a healthy environment that feet can thrive in. As well as this, the upper construction is also highly durable and supportive to encourage a locked-down fit. It is also soft on the foot thanks to the nicely padded tongue. Within the upper, the Bootie upper construction adapts to the shape of the foot to supply flexible support, creating a snug fit which reduces in-shoe slippage so that you can enjoy smooth, distraction-free strides. Plus, Toe Protect rubber compound wraps the toes to reinforce the shoe’s trail-worthy state, increasing its durability and defending feet against roots, rocks and other general hazards. Completing the upper is a lacing system which locks down the midfoot to reduce in-shoe slippage so you can enjoy distraction-free strides.
Fresh Foam Midsole
New Balance’s innovative Fresh Foam midsole offers premium cushioning underfoot, giving you a comfortable ride and ensuring you can run better, for longer. Attenuating shock impact, the Fresh Foam helps to protect against stress to joints when striking down on the hard, unforgiving surfaces of the trail without compromising a responsive, natural ride. Delivering plush underfoot cushioning, the Fresh Foam is a fusion of plush foam and advanced design, creating an ultra-cushioned and geometrically sound ride. Fresh Foam encourages a smooth heel-toe-transition and reduces the use of superfluous muscle power; this diminishes fatigue, keeping you motivated for longer. For comfort and protection from sunrise to sundown, the New Balance Hierro v6 Trail Running Shoes are the perfect partner for tired feet on long trails.
Vibram Rubber Outsole

The rubber is able to form a solid bond with the ground beneath it to ensure traction and control as you explore the unbeaten path. Furthermore, varying lug sizes adorn their corresponding pressure points to provide flexible and sticky multi-directional traction as you tackle awkward ascents and daring descents.
