Speedy stride with a cushy feel.
New Balance decided to take an award-winning shoe and make it even better to create the Men's Fresh Foam Zante v2 Running Shoe. With a tweaked no-sew mesh upper, the second version of the Fresh Foam Zante is even more breathable than the first for extra comfort when the heat is on.
The innovative Fresh Foam midsole cushions your feet no matter where you strike on your step and yields an incredibly smooth heel-to-toe transition with every stride. A springy feel in the toes gives the shoe a fast feel, while the unique, single-piece blown rubber sole makes for a light and nimble running sensation. Bootie construction provides a sock-like fit and eliminates blister-producing hot spots with the no-sew support leaving your feet feeling fresh after every run.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 9.5
Bought this ones for two reasons:
1. Needed a replacement for my old Asics
2. They look great
Ever since I got them I've been improving my times consistently, trainer says it's my change in form, I say I have new wings.
They feel great and have a very good fit, true to size. They have ankle support, however, it's not as stiff as the one from my old Asics, but I feel this is a personal preference.
The Foam technology feels great for running on the street, good cushioning, haven't had any issues on my knees or sore feet (I don't go over 10k).
Finally, they're super light, they feel as light as my Asics J-33, which is a lightweight shoe, but the Asics doesn't have the cushioning nor the ankle support.
