New Balance 928 Features


ROLLBAR


Women's white New Balance 928

Rollbar is a graphite shank that runs through a shoe. It guides the stride to the correct strike path. Rollbar technology is designed to prevent your foot from rolling inward or outward. It keeps your foot supported while walking. This helps your foot's gait stay controlled when you walk, which is helpful for those who turn their foot while walking. It won't feel like your foot is moving around too much in your shoes.





ABZORB

Men Brown New Balance 928

A blend of rubbery and proprietary foam material, Abzorb is a lightweight cushion used in the midsoles of New Balance shoes. It absorbs the shock from walking and then displaces the energy. This helps to cushion the impact and keep your feet comfortable and protected.

Who is New Balance 928 right for?


Some people enjoy running as exercise. It's a great calorie-burning exercise and good for stress relief but isn't for everyone. If you are someone who wants the benefits of running but can't, walking can be just as good. You're who these shoes were made for.


Who should avoid New Balance 928?


Since it's a walking shoe, the 928 is of course not ideal for runners. It doesn't have all the extras a runner's shoes need to keep up with them. Customers have commented that the 928 runs narrow so if you have a wide foot and none of the widths accommodate your width, you may want to skip this shoe. The short tongue of the shoe can also cause the laces to aggravate the foot on some wearers. As a simple-looking shoe, it may also simply not appeal to your style.
