New Balance 1400v3 Performance
The upper is made up of an open synthetic mesh with welded on overlays that breaths great while providing a more snug and secure fit over one’s mid foot. The interior has been updated with a much more plush and soft material in addition to being seamless, so running with or without socks with feel sublime!
The sole unit is made up of New Balance’s Revlite material, a 30% lighter material (relative to traditional foams) that gives great cushioning too. The feel of the shoes is mixture between firm (more in the mid foot) and cushioned (more in the heel) which translates into a more fast-paced running experience. The lightweight factor of the shoe really comes into play here as the shoe can sometimes feel non-existent during runs, which is something any runner can hope for. Lastly, the outsole is also lined with high abrasion and grip rubber to help with traction on road surfaces.
