New Balance Blue Tab Collection

Share This:

Footwear design has evolved immensely over the last couple decades with New Balance being one of the best to celebrate both innovative technology and style in the most imaginative way possible. With a vast selection of retro silhouettes on offer, we can sometimes forget how the Boston-born sportswear brand is still at the forefront of innovation, but not anymore.

The New Balance Blue Tab Collection is a celebration of performance footwear like no other, presenting a range of innovative technology onto three popular models – M890V3, MR1400 and MRC1600 – that instantly catch your eye due to their bold design accents. As well as the distinctive Blue Tab seen across the range, replacing the usual red, the collection also boasts a tonal Burgundy and Navy colour palette that is consequential from the brand’s rich heritage in running.

To start the collection, New Balance presents the M890V3, a shoe that has been embraced by the running community incredibly well due to its soft no-sew upper that continues to increase runners’ agility, as well as the advanced ABZORB and RevLite infused sole units. The shoe itself weighs around 8.5oz, allowing the wearer to focus more on their everyday mileage, regardless of whether it’s a walk to the shops or a 10k run.

The MR1400 conveys the style and elegance of the M890V3 perfectly, transferring it’s simple-looking upper with a mix of breathable mesh and no-sew overlays that provide a seamless feel with outstanding support. The lightweight and technologically advanced RevLite sole unit that features across the collection, is still present but has been striped back to complement the more sleek form of the MR1400, without any loss of stability or responsiveness to the runner.

Last but definitely not the least, is the MRC1600; an extremely intelligent silhouette that unlike the first two runners utilises a slightly higher density within its ground-breaking RevLite sole unit. This subtle yet overly important feature allows the ultra-thin midsole to deliver enough cushioning required for an entire 26.2 mile marathon. As well as this, the MRC1600 also includes a geometrically infused design and carefully applied traction components to the outsole, creating a running shoe that can easily rival the worlds’ best for years to come.

The complete New Balance Blue Tab Collection is now available online and in selected size? stores, priced between £90 and £100 in UK sizes 7 – 11.
