New Balance® 623V4

The expected release date for the New Balance 623V4 is July 24, 2023.

The New Balance 623V4 will have the following features & updates:

  • Banking on its predecessor’s success, the new New Balance 623V4 will also have a non-marking rubber outsole. The ABZORB Heel and IMEVA technology midsole remain the same.
  • Additionally, more color options will be available in fresh new styles and colors. The Forefoot Flexibility is enhanced to allow better movement,
  • QUIX technology in the sole is still prevalent, which has also been enhanced for better turns and lateral cuts.
  • The Upper still features leather and suede with perforations for breathability. However, the heel has a more snug fit, and the collar has even more padding for your comfort.
