Review Summary

8.6 Total Score
The NB Zante v3 comforts its status of go-to shoe for runners looking for a natural feeling with some cushioning.

The New Balance Fresh Foam v3 is one is one of the lightest neutral shoe on the market (if not the lightest). This 3rd version packs some additional cushioning while remaining lightweight. Its limited heel to toe drop (6 mm) still makes it a good introductory shoe for runners interested in minimalist running. On top of that the upper is even more breathable and you can be sure the sleek design of the shoe will catch the glances of fellow runners and passersby. Undoubtedly one of the best shoes of 2017 so far!

Technologies

  • Outsole

The most distinctive characteristic of the New Balance Zante’s outsole is the large mass of hexagons it is made of. It’s supposed to provide more stability and efficiency during the stride.

Like many running shoes, the New Balance Fresh Foam Zante v3 features blown rubber in the mid and forefoot section of the sole. The heel section is made of carbon rubber for a better durability.

  • Midsole

The midsole of the New Balance Fresh Foam Zante v3 is also made of hexagon convex shapes. Pure marketing or actual smoother heel to toe transition? You tell us!

  • Upper

The sleek new upper of the New Balance Zante is one of the main improvements of this v3. The forefoot overlay was removed to give more space to the toes. The new mesh is also even more breathable than in the previous models while providing great flexibility and firmness in key areas. Night runners will also be very happy to discover substantial reflective details.
