The New Balance 455 was originally released in 1979 and made specifically for trail/off-road running. Now, New Balance (to the delight of many) has decided to release them again. The 455 from New Balance features a suede and nylon upper, padded collar, foam rubber midsole, and traction heavy rubber outsole. The classic design of the "455" still remains in fashion, and so does their lightweight durability. These can definitely be enjoyed on the city streets or off the beaten path.
