Yesterday we had the opportunity to hop on a bus headed uptown and preview the newest walking shoe from New Balance. After hopping on a bus in Flatiron we made our way up to the incredible New York Botanical Gardens. It couldn’t have been a better day for it either! We all slipped on a pair of the brand new 1765 and set out into the gorgeous scenery.
The 1765 has already been taking walking by storm combining three of the brand’s proprietary technologies – N2, Fantom Fit and RevLite. A medial post prevents pronation, this shoe is built to provide a much longer walk with the utmost comfort. The heel cleft angle is also custom designed for fast walkers, all with a sleek silhouette.
After walking for a bit we found our way into an area in front of the conservatory for our Good Form Walking lesson to learn the importance of the big three – stride, footstrike and posture – from expert trainers Grant Robinson and Holly Perkins.
The day ended down at the Stone Mill with some relaxation by the creek. We had a blast, and will be utilizing our new skills as we walk around the city from now on. Thanks again New Balance, we can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
