New Balance 152 RC

BackgroundEraser 20240507 114657941 e1715107913752

The 152 trades on the ultra-light reputation of its predecessor, the 150. It’s still low profile but is now better cushioned, with both a great feel for the road and more protection—especially for efficient, whippet-like runners. The upper is lightweight and close-fitting, but tailored for better-than-average toeroom, and is supported by HF-welded overlays and soft, synthetic suede on open mesh. The outersole is durable Ndurance on the heel and blown rubber in the forefoot, used sparingly to keep it light.
