New Balance Athletic Shoe, Inc. announced that Runner’s World magazine has named the New Balance 754 running shoe an “Editor’s Choice” award winner in its Summer 2005 Shoe Buyer’s Guide (June 2005).

“Recommended for runners with normal arches who want a neutral-cushioned shoe that also happens to be stable,” said the Runner’s World editors.

The 754 is the most recent update in the New Balance 750 responsive neutral cushioning series. The 754 is designed with Abzorb® cushioning in the heel and forefoot and a Stability Web® system. The 754 also features an Acteva® midsole, an N-durance® outsole, and a blown rubber outsole. Air mesh on the upper ensures the 754 is lightweight and breathable while reflective details provide safety for night running.

“The entire team at New Balance is extremely proud of this recognition from Runner’s World,” says Scott Wicker, marketing manager, running at New Balance. “We strive to engineer functional, innovative, and technical products that suit the needs of runners and are thrilled the 754 was recognized for this distinction.”
