Speedy stride with a cushy feel.
New Balance decided to take an award-winning shoe and make it even better with the Men's Fresh Foam Zante v3 Running Shoe. With a mesh upper, the third version of the Fresh Foam Zante is even more breathable than prior editions to deliver 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 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, and the no-sew support system helps your feet feel fresh after every run.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size

I've seen consistently great reviews on this shoe, including from sites such as Run Repeat. I do think its a decent shoe for the price. The fit is okay, but to me it seems there is an issue with the inner lining and insole. There is a clear discrepancy between the L and R shoe, which I haven't encountered with other shoes. The L shoe has a different arch height and insole fit, making it rather uncomfortable. So perhaps this is a QC issue? Unfortunate, because the shoe is otherwise fine.

I needed a light, cushioned, and comfortable shoe and this is exactly what I got! I just made the switch over to New Balance for running shoes and wasn't completely sure what to get. After reading the description of this shoe, very glad I switched over to a new brand and found a good running shoe (mostly indoors for workouts). I sized up .5 from my normal show size to accommodate my foot moving around while I exercise.
