Whether you are walking around New York City, running the marathon or want a super soft shoe to slip into after the race, each step will be cushioned and comfortable with New Balance’s 2022 NYC Marathon Fresh Foam More v4. This shoe features the TCS New York City Marathon® badge on the tongue and other details to commemorate the race.
New Balance packed in even more Fresh Foam to make this max-cushioned shoe softer and more comfortable. It has the highest stack height of any New Balance Fresh Foam shoe, and it sports more energy return and cushion than previous More versions.
The rocker geometry helps you glide seamlessly through your stride, whether you are walking the dog or beginning to run. With a wider platform and data driven outsole placement, the More has better shock absorption to provide smooth transitions as you run or walk. Testers loved the new version for how the new geometry of the shoe made their feet feel immersed in the cushioning in our New Balance Fresh Foam More v4 review.
The soft and breathable engineered mesh upper feels great on foot, and there are extra reflective details to help you stay visible when you are running in low light conditions.
Whether you are going for your long run or standing on your feet for long shifts at work, do it in comfort and marathon pride with New Balance 2022 NYC Marathon Fresh Foam More v4.

The biggest changes that New Balance made were to the heel geometry and Fresh Foam cushioning. New Balance added more Fresh Foam X cushion under foot, raising the stack height a millimeter and making it softer, as well as giving it more energy return. They took out a portion of the cushioning on the outsole of the heel, which allows the heel to splay more on impact and provide a bouncier feel.
Designers also changed the upper, making it slightly more streamlined with more structure throughout the midsole. A streamlined tongue improves breathability and fits the foot more comfortably.
