It has been a while since our blog about companies traditionally known for shoes entering the scrub market (namely Skechers and New Balance). While it took a while for the New Balance Scrubs to come to fruition they have finally arrived.
In case you didn’t read the blog from a few months ago I will get you caught up. Everyone is familiar with New Balance shoes. They are obviously a humongous brand known for comfort. Well to take advantage of it’s brand, New Balance licensed the rights for a scrub line to the same people that make GelScubs (best known as the collegiate logo’d scrubs).
Here is a little info on the scrubs straight from the horse’s mouth:
“The New Balance Scrub line was started for a simple reason: they wanted to incorporate recent advances in performance apparel technology into the healthcare work place. This mission is demonstrated by the variety of features you may expect from athletic clothes but are found on the New Balance Scrub collection; such as Lightning Dry technology. This is no accident. When creating the new line, the manufacturers created a new fabric they term “PerforMed” which is the first performance fabric that combines the best athletic and healthcare technologies into the New Balance line of professional uniforms.”
Prior to launching the new line, we had the opportunity to touch, feel and wear the scrubs ourselves (something we do for every new product we sell). The material of the scrubs truly does have an amazing feel to it. It is an incredibly soft, comfortable scrub to wear. In addition to the feel, the fabric has just a touch of stretch to it. When you wear the scrubs there is zero constriction. You have a full range of movement. In fact, they have a very similar feel to what you would expect from athletic clothing.
The only real negative to the line is the limited number of cuts and styles it is available in. We hope that with time and success they will begin to roll out new styles.
