New Balance has recently released an Omn1s and I feel I am lucky enough to learn more about it and demonstrate some details to you. This newly released model had caught much attention before its launching. And after the launch we could see that numerous New Balance OMN1S were all quickly sold out at the retailers’–they sold very well. Personally, it will become, as it were, a beast on court providing that you can get along well with it. I’ve tried the New Balance series many times before and this New Balance Omn1s is for me like an old friend. So I feel particularly familiar with it. Here I’ve also got a pair of this Omn1s . Let’s have a detailed look at it together.
First of all, let’s get a simple look at the shoe box. But honestly speaking, there is nothing special in it. It is the regular shape with bright red and the “NB” logo in it. On the side, there is the basic information of the shoe.
The moment I opened the box, hardly could I remove my eyes away from it. “Cool” is the only one word that came into being in my mind. The shoe’s appearance is just aesthetically pleasing. The colorway is black and blue, which looks very harmonious. In addition, it can match all kinds of daily dressing, which seems good news for many a fans.
In my view, the shoe’s wrapping is entirely dictated by the lacing system. When I was on court, I felt my feet integrated with the shoes and there wasn’t any slipping inside the shoe. Well, I think highly of the laces while some buyers shared that “the laces are just decoration.” Therefore, it may largely rest upon personal experience.
Surely, in summer days, ventilation must be first ensured so as to break the sales records. Made of mesh, the upper is super breathable.
As for the cushion, I feel it is passable. The New Balance equips the fuelcell which was once used in running shoes. And during my games, for the record, it didn’t fail me nor did it satisfy me. To tell you the truth that I am a heavy player, so the feedback the cushion offers will be relatively transparent. As for the lighter ones, they may feel the cushion hard and useless.
With respect to the traction, it is fantastic. The outsole is made of pale blue crystal rubber and the pattern is the typical herringbone. Besides that, there’s a large “NB” logo in the outsole. And apparently, we can see a tree-branch shape TPU embedded inside the sole. Now that it has been tested, you can believe me that the traction grips very well. On wood floor or concrete one, the outsole hugs it tightly when there are emergency stops in case you slip down.
For the materials, here is a close picture of the upper. Before getting the shoes, I had thought it was a hot-pressed material with a black and blue gradient. But to the contrary, the gradient patterns are woven instead of dyeing.
As for the size, you’ll have to choose carefully or you may run into a smaller size.
Here are some means to protect your beloved shoes if you chance to have a pair of this New Balance Omn1s. Chances are that you will find the outsole filled with gravels after one-day wearing out; hence, it requires you to do some frequent cleaning. Besides,don’t get your shoes exposed to the sun for a long time nor should you put it in an environment that is extremely cold. What’s more, extremely wet or dry conditions should be avoided.
The New Balance Omn1s has proven to be a reliable mate. If you’ve got one pair of this shoes, all you need to do is to show some care for it and surely it will in turn pay you back.
