What is Abzorb®?

Abzorb® cushioning is New Balance's proprietary basic cushioning compound.  This foam-based polymer works by dispersing the forces out from the point of impact and reducing the shock that is transferred through the shoe and up into the leg and body (this type of shock is sometimes responsible for heel, ankle, and even back pain).  Most New Balance shoes incorporate some form of this highly effective material.
