New Balance Women's Beacon

New Balance Women's Beacon

  • $ 120.00


New Balance has created a unique new shoe with the Beacon. Like Hoka Clifton or Nike React, the Beacon is New Balance's experiment into how soft and light their Fresh Foam can get. The result is a pretty amazing shoe. Comfortable doing everything from speedwork to long runs, the Beacon is a unique mixture of lightness and softness that doesn't really have a direct comparison in the market. Between the overall height and drop of a Hoka Clifton and Altra Escalante, the Beacon has a 6mm drop on 20/26 stack heights, putting it in standard trainer territory.

It doesn't feel like a standard trainer, however. The immediate feeling when putting on the Beacons is overall softness. You also notice how light the Beacons are, and those initial reactions are confirmed all the way through the run. Light both on the scale and your feet, eliminating almost all blown rubber from the sole and relying on a textured pattern of their most durable Fresh Foam compound for the outsole has left New Balance with a daily trainer that consistently feels light and soft.
