The New Balance MR749 is a running shoe that is designed to provide mild stability control for long-distance runners.  The shoe features a synthetic/mesh upper and a stability web which supports the midfoot while allowing it to be lightweight.  It has an Acteva premium lightweight midsole that resists compression and utilizes an N-Lock external support system which pulls the shoe snugly around the foot for better support.  The shoe also has a medial post on the inside edge to help prevent overpronation.  The outsole of the MR749 is made of N-Durance rubber compound for strength and durability and it has a blown rubber forefoot which provides lightweight cushioning.  It also includes Abzorb cushioning in both the heel and forefoot for high shock absorption.  The shoe comes in a variety of colors including black/silver, gold/black, gray/orange, gray/red, and gray/yellow and is also available in a women's model, the WR749.
