New Balance Cross Trainer is the name for superior quality in an athletic running shoe. If you’re not a professional athlete, New Balance Cross Trainer is the shoe for around the house too. If you have any problems with shin splints are aching feet, these shoes will definably be of benefit to you.
New Balance began at the dawn of the 20th century in Boston, Massachusetts by a 33 year old English immigrant, William J. Riley. He was committed to helping people with problem feet by making arch supports and prescription footwear to improve shoe fit. This was long before the New Balance Cross Trainer was ever conceived.
In 1961, under the leadership of Eleanor and Paul Kidd, the world’s first performance running shoe, the Trackster was introduced with a ripple sole and multiple widths. During the 1960’s, New Balance’s reputation for performance footwear available in multiple widths grew through word of mouth.
Before a New Balance Cross Trainer ever goes into production, it goes through product development, prototyping, and testing. When the shoes go into production, specifications and instructions are sent to the manufacturing facility. Each team member’s expertise is utilized to the fullest.
The New Balance Cross Trainer is made in the USA at one of its five factories. New Balance is a privately held company that has grown from a small company to an industry leader. They remain committed to their domestic workforce who has remained dedicated to New Balance throughout many years of service.
Construction of the New Balance Cross Trainer is all high quality. No leather material is used in construction, so it breathes well. If you participate in various cardio activities, this shoe is designed to do just that with a running profile designed sole. Patented ABZORB in the heel and forefoot provides maximum shock absorption. For mid foot support, the New Balance Cross Trainer has a stability web which also provides torsional stability while reducing weight. Speaking of reducing weight, the New Balance Cross Trainer only weighs 10 oz! That’s one lightweight cross training shoe.
Customer satisfaction for the New Balance Cross Trainer is quite impressive. On a 5 star scale, most reviews you will read on this shoe will be 4’s and 5’s. Categories are comfort, looks, and overall rating for the shoes.
Whether you’re a superstar athlete, amateur jogging enthusiast, or just someone who likes an extremely comfortable pair of shoes to wear around the house, there’s nothing quite like the Men’s and Women’s New Balance Cross Trainer.
