While the Fresh Foam Zante doesn’t officially debut until March 2015, New Balance is pre-releasing a special version at the New York City marathon, sporting a grey and orange colorway including the city’s “Excelsior” motto on the laces.
The technology for the Fresh Foam midsole was created out of an obsession over the needs of runners and how they move through their gait cycle. New Balance updated its Fresh Foam resulting in a shoe with a quick and incredibly smooth heel to toe transition, regardless of the pace you run.
The Fresh Foam Zante NYC fits like a supportive sock, hugging your arch while allowing your toes to spread out comfortably. Compared to the original Fresh Foam 980, its sleek fit feels more like a racing flat. The toe spring helps the shoe look fast and feel fast, assisting with the quick transition of the foot from heel to toe.
The Fresh Foam Zante NYC is available at New Balance online.
