Minimalism never felt so good—introducing, the New Balance Women's Cruz v1 Gum Rubber Running Shoe. That being said, you don't have to cut down your wardrobe to a capsule closet just to own this shoe. The Cruz is designed to assure a carefree running experience that's ideal for short runs and training sessions alike.
More specifically, the Cruz v1 features a bootie-like upper for a personalized fit and feel, while the mesh panels provide ample breathability. A midfoot panel helps maintain a semblance of structural support, and the stretch heel prevents pressure from building up against your Achilles tendon. Most importantly, a Fresh Foam midsole attenuates impact, enhances energy return, and provides quick propulsion, allowing you to focus on cadence and a fast stride.

New Favorite Every Day
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This shoe is hands down my new favorite for work and around town. I used to wear Nike Frees regularly, however I find the fit and comfort of this shoe to be better. I have the black / grey, and love the style and mix of materials: from the knit fabric around the toe, to suede-eqsue side logo panel and and subtle hits of brown leather details. Would recommend to anyone!
