Overview 

The Foam Zante v3 men’s lightweight running shoe features an aggressive toe spring and a comfortable no-sew material application for a sleek fit. Taking inspiration from iconic ‘70s and ‘80s models, the new suede/mesh upper has iridescent highlights for a modern look. Look to the Nike Free R for something similar.

First Impressions

Retro fans will love it, although it does appear to fall between two stools – not quite a racer, definitely not a mileage munching shoe. It’s quick that much is for sure, but is it really cushioned enough for today’s runner?

Sole Unit

Soft as Fresh Foam undoubtedly is, our test team reports these shoes are a little on the firmer side than other NBs. A slightly modified Fresh Foam midsole utilizes more prominent concave and convex geometric shapes for an improved ride and additional carbon rubber on the outsole increases traction and durability. The 6mm heel to toe drop means they are pretty user friendly and you’ll be able to get on with them quicker than a 4mm shoe that takes that little longer for your body to adjust to.

Upper

The update team have been hard at work to revamp the upper slightly from v2. There are larger mesh holes on top of the forefoot for better breathability and a tigther weave midfoot for improved stability. 

Overall Conclusion

These are definitely worth looking at if you’re in the market for making the transition to faster shoes. They offer a good mix of cushioning v performance. The only thing is, you’ll probably be restricted to as and when you can use them. An everyday runner that isn’t quite.

How was the New Balance Zante v3 for you? Let us know, we’d love to report your findings.
