New Balance 890 v3 Men's Shoe

New Balance teamed up their elite athletes to create a top training shoe for serious runners. Now in its 3rd generation, the 890 boasts a lightweight, performance oriented design, yet with enough cushioning for long runs and everyday use. With the names of mid-distance stars Andy Baddeley and Jenny Barringer Simpson on the upper, you know you’re in for a solid run.

We loved the versatility and the performance feel of the 890 v2, so we’re excited to see that New Balance has kept the changes to a minimum in this update. Numbers-wise, expect the same weight and heel-to-toe offset as the v2.

What to Watch For

  • Modified Heel Fit: Overlays have been increased over the heel for a more supportive heel counter.
  • Similar Outsole Design: There are subtle tweaks in the outsole pattern, but don’t expect any change in performance, as it still offers a grippy blown rubber material and full ground contact.
  • Carryover Midsole: RevLite midsole material offers cushioning that is not too soft and not too firm, without weighing the shoe down.
