The midsole of the 890 uses New Balances Revlite foam. This foam is a performance foam which is responsive and as it says on the tin, light!
Along with the no-sew material from the engineered mesh, the 890 has a booty-fit construction which adds to the midfoot lockdown of the new upper.
The 890 v6 gives an amazing feel through toe off. There is a noticeable rocker located in the forefoot which substantially aids propulsion for an amazing ride. It is the stand out feature for this shoe.
Within the midsole/outsole of the 890 are two TPU strips which run under the 1st and 5th metatarsal to aid with responsiveness at toe off.
