New Balance WW1100 Review
The New Balance WW1100 are called wellness shoes and they’ve been specially created for women. They have been designed to strengthen and tone the legs, thighs and buttocks. They will also make you burn more calories just by going about your day while wearing these shoes. This is something that will be prized by those who want to lose weight and get some shape in the legs and buttocks.
These wellness shoes work to such an extent that research has been done to figure out just how much better these shoes are compared to normal walking shoes at working the body and here are the results:
- up to 10% increased calorie burning
- up to 29% increased quad muscle activation
- up to 16% increased glute muscle activation
- up to 16% increased hamstring muscle activation
- up to 14% increased calf muscle activation
As you can see these shoes really work the muscles in the legs and buttocks as well as burning calories. These is even evidence there that it works the calf muscles. All of this activation as it puts it above is the improvement and toning of those particular muscles and toning of those areas of the body.
Upper – The upper is synthetic and mesh and will provide the utmost support and comfort. There is a liner of the shoe that you can barely see that provides further comfort as you walk around. The shoe is available in a variety of colors all of which can be seen at the other end of the links above and below.
Heel and Forefoot – The heel and forefoot provide stability for the shoe. There is a special foam insert that will spread the pressure of the ground as you walk. It gives that bounce back feeling with every stride. The foam also conforms to the foot so it will mold around you and feel snug and comfortable.
Midsole – There is some technology used in the midsole called Acteva Ultralite. This is a very lightweight midsole that provides the ideal resistance to compression. This technology is so lightweight that it is 32% lighter than standard foam midsoles.
Outsole – The outsole has special Ndurance compound rubber to provide good traction and durability in high wear areas. The outsole as they all are whatever sports shoe you buy is made of blown rubber which is the perfect material to use as it lasts long while being soft to walk on.
New Balance WW1100 Conclusion
The New Balance WW1100 is a unique shoe. There are hardly any around that will give you a workout just by wearing them and going about your day to day business. They’ve been design to do this and still be comfortable to wear and walk in.
