Rainbow Forecasts

There’s one thing we love to see here on the Active Team, and that’s when our Capsule reports come to life. One of our favorite themes from our last Running Capsule, Run Right, was definitely the Mix N Match page focused on styling. So, it goes without saying that we were stoked to see the teaser images of New Balance‘s newest colorway for M890v3 for Spring 2013. Following up the M890v2, this model takes the concept of a “Rainbow” colorway to a new level.

Bringing the trend into footwear, New Balance has not compromised an ounce of performance. The newest update to this model comes complete with an 8mm offset from heel to forefoot, and more forefoot outsole than the previous model set on the REVLite foam, resulting in a more comfortable and durable ride. It’s a shoe that truly can withstand an avid runner while being drenched in fun from the laces to the outsole.
