New Balance Zante v3 Women’s Sample (subject to change)

Available March 2017 – MSRP $100.00

From tempo workout to long run day, the Zante has become known as a lightweight and versatile trainer with a hint of responsiveness. While the 3rd version of this shoe aims to continue the simple design that runners have grown to love, the addition of an all new upper and small tweaks to the midsole and outsole should offer a slightly revamped feel.

The most noticeable change in the Zante v3 is the new engineered mesh upper. The new design offers a tighter weave through the midfoot and larger mesh holes directly on top of the forefoot. We expect the fit of the v3 to be similar to v2, while increasing durability.

The Zante v3 maintains the same stack height as the previous version, but with modifications to the geometric pattern of the Fresh Foam midsole and outsole. The shoe aims to offer an improved ride by utilizing more prominent concave and convex geometric shapes within the midsole. The addition of a carbon rubber to the outsole should also provide added traction and increased durability.

Preliminary Tech Specs

Stack height*: 23mm heel, 17mm forefoot, 6mm heel-toe offset

Weight*: 8.6 oz (men’s size 9), 7.2 oz (women’s size 8)

*Production stack heights and weights may differ from what is listed here.
