Gear Construction

Looking more like a stylish and sleek walking shoe, the New Balance Women's WW1400v1 Shoe comes with narrow to extra wide size to fit for all type of feet. Although it looks like a simple boot to use for daily use, with the sturdy and strategic features, it will prove to be one of the most faithful companions while hiking in diverse terrains. The full-grain leather uppers act as excellent waterproofing agent to make your rainy day hiking enjoyable than ever.  

The unique feature of the shoe is the ROLLBAR® positioning technology that offers midfoot stability while reducing rear foot movement. The seam-sealed construction also offers the interior waterproof bootie which will keep your feet dry for long hours. The ankle collar with foamy support keeps the feet stable and protected from abrasion on the trail. As an added bonanza, the grey colorway features Thinsulate® lining that is not too thick to affect your motion but enough breathable to keep you insulated during winter.
