Available May 2017 – MSRP $100.00

Light enough for workout days yet cushioned enough for long runs, the New Balance Zante v3 Breathe will take the versatile package of the standard Zante and equip it with a new “Breathe” upper. While the standard Zante should offer sufficient breathability for your daily runs, the Zante Breathe will further enhance ventilation, making it a great option as the hot summer approaches.

The Zante v3 Breathe utilizes the same engineered mesh seen in the standard Zante, but the use of a heavily perforated design along the side of the shoe offers far superior breathability. We expect this design to provide added comfort on hot days while still offering a soft and seamless midfoot wrap. A bootie construction will also continue to be used , creating a snug, close-to-the-skin feel.

To maintain the smooth Zante ride, the Breathe edition maintains identical tooling to the standard Zante v3. A fresh foam midsole offers a high level of cushioning with a snappy ride, and a 6mm offset gives the shoe a more natural feel.
