Pros

  • EVA or Ethyl Vinyl Acetate foam

This product is made using EVA foam which made from Ethyl vinyl acetate and blended copolymers. What is it and what are its benefits? It is closed foam with high level of chemical linking. It has a fine and uniform cell structure. There are thousands of cells in it and they contain air. When you move, you apply pressure to the air. The air gets pushed out and then it gets sucked back again. This is called the property of impact and vibration absorption. It is light in weight. It is flexible and durable.

  • Oil resistant and slip resistant

New Balance Men’s MX626 Slip Resistant Cross-Training Shoe has oil resistant and slip resistant outsole. This is beneficial not only for people doing cross training exercises but also for people who work in slippery surfaces. Workers in a workshop or cooks or bartenders have to work in slippery and oily floors. This product keeps them safe by minimizing the risks of falls.

  • Easy ‘on’ in a fraction of a second

Your cross training shoes should fit your feet perfectly. If not, you may not feel comfortable. Right fitting shoes may take some time to insert. The rear pull at the back of these shoes helps in easy ‘on’. In a fraction of a second your shoes are on and you are ready for your workout session.
