New Balance has asserted itself as one of the titans in terms of performance running trainers. It’s done this over decades of hard work, always pushing the envelope on how technology can improve performance and physical health. In recent years, though, we’ve noticed an exponential curve where New balance tech is concerned. Take New Balance FuelCell, for example.

You’ll find FuelCell technology in the sole unit of some of New Balance’s most popular runners, and that’s no coincidence. The lively, responsive underfoot feel of FuelCell is undeniable; it’s the brand’s highest energy-return performance foam yet, and you can really feel it.

Chris Morfesi, Senior Product Manager at New Balance, breaks down the FuelCell SuperComp Trainer: “The FuelCell SuperComp Trainer was designed to deliver a propulsive, bouncy ride thanks to our FuelCell midsole and Energy Arc technology. It’s the perfect shoe for daily training runs, long runs, and everything in between. The training companion to our marathon racing shoe, the FuelCell SuperComp Elite, runners will love the FuelCell SuperComp Trainer’s super unique running experience.”

But the New Balance FuelCell SuperComp Trainer is just part of the story. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best use cases of FuelCell to try out right now.

Of course, the FuelCell sole unit has also been translated into a trail-running silhouette. Not only have these designs become a go-to for general style in 2022, but we've seen a huge uptick in the number of people going for long hikes & trail runs as exercise. Waterproof uppers and a robust outsole make this a formidable opponent for all terrain.
