The New Balance 4040 is now more modern, more responsive. The 4040v2 Turf features a RevLite midsole that comes from New Balance's top-of-the-line running technology. The midsole runs the full length of the shoe and provides just the right amount of midfoot support. The most unique aspect of the midsole, though, is that it replicates the same 11mm drop as the 4040v2 cleat. It seems obvious — do pregame work exactly how you're going to play. The ProBalance construction and consistent slant holds your foot in a consistent position so your performance isn't interrupted from BP to game time. Under the midsole, ProBank stabilizes the forefoot, stopping the loss of efficiency seen in minimally cushioned trainers. The upper is a combination of suede and Minimus-inspired mesh for all-out breathability. This low-cut trainer is finished with a digital camo inner liner and an outsole that includes both ridges and small, tightly positioned nubs. Wt. 9.6 oz.
Are these good shoes to used outside the baseball field, ie. for running?
