The New Balance FuelCell Rebel is a fun shoe for your speedier efforts, but is comfortable for your slower runs. This is a shoe designed for forefoot and mid foot runners. Although the duel density FuelCell foam is designed for speed, it is cushioned enough for everyday training. A full-length FuelCell midsole contributes to a nice soft landing and snappy response. The forefoot pad of FuelCell is firmer and more responsive. Perhaps the most noticeable innovation in the Rebel is the flared “wing” on the lateral side of the shoe that is designed to provide more traction at higher speeds. It is unnoticeable while running. The upper is one of the best that New Balance has ever designed — a bootie construction using a breathable jacquard mesh with trace fiber stitching to provide necessary structure through the mid foot. This is a well-designed shoe that is fun to run in.
