Imagine putting on your favorite pair of socks right out of the dryer then hopping on a treadmill with a 2X ply yoga mat running surface. That is the best way I can describe the way these shoes feel on my feet.
I'm 40 and on my way to getting in shape - I've lost almost 20 lbs and I need to lose ~ 15 - 20 more. At the beginning of the summer my wife and I purchased new shoes as we were walking 25 - 35 miles per week. I purchased my third pair of New Balance made in the USA 990 series shoes - the uppers last forever, I love the way the shoe feels. However, after walking ~ 700 miles over the summer, the tread was wearing thin and they needed to be replaced. Those shoes are way too expensive to buy every three – four months... My next pair of shoes needed to be a less expensive pair of NBs that would feel great and last another 500 - 700 miles comfortably.
These Fresh Foam Zante v2s fit the bill perfectly so far. I cannot believe how comfortable and light weight they are. I only have ~ 40 miles on them at the moment, but they feel incredible on my feet. When I put them on I WANT to move... :) As long as NB keeps making these I have found my shoe for the next few years.
