New Balance Fresh Foam X Vongo V5: Luxurious Softness and Stability
The Vongo v5 builds on the success of the perfectly cushioned 1080 v11 but with an innovative dual compound midsole for optimum stability. The New Balance Fresh Foam X Vongo v5 running shoe is a luxurious combination of softness and stability. A Fresh Foam X midsole provides plush underfoot cushioning for the long miles, while stability features in the midsole and upper offer comfortable support throughout your run.
This update also includes extra support by pulling the medial width out by 5mm with a gradient dual compound midsole to ensure a smooth stable platform.
The extra medial post is there to enhance the instep and provide the benefit of stronger support to over-pronating feet and flat arches, but in a more subtle way than the rigidity experienced in many stability shoes.
Plush Hypoknit mesh is used for the upper resulting in a roomy, airy toe box, allowing for natural toe splay as you run. This is luxurious sock-like comfort at its best with finer tuning implemented at the midfoot region of the upper where the knit is thickened up a little to act alongside the lacing system to help with lockdown through the midfoot.
The heel collar is plush around the ankle with a padded tongue, which all contributes to the security felt throughout – from the bucket-seat heel, through the locked-down midfoot, to the airy, lightweight support at the toe box.
The Vongo v5 is best suited for the runner looking for a daily stability trainer with a softer landing and a moderate amount of stability in the forefoot.
