One specific upgrade is the use of the New Balance’s trademark ABZORB DTS, or known as the Dynamic Transition System, cushioning on the heel area to help in transitioning after heel impact and on the forefoot the ABZORB SBS is used which is designed for shock absorption. It also features the midsole cushion system of New balance, the ACTEVA, that helps in giving the runner optimal cushioning. The upper part of the New Balance Men’s MR993 running shoe made with pigskin and rubber mesh that isn’t heavy and makes the shoe more lightweight. The material used in making the shoe’s sole is their trademark Ndurance rubber compound that makes the shoe very strong and durable without sacrificing flexibility. The designers of this shoe paid great attention to the sole, giving the sole a bit of an open space in the heel to help the runner get a softer feel when landing. The sole also have forefoot groves to help in maintaining the flexibility when toeing off the ground.
