Some technological developments are just plain cool. Some are even cool enough to trigger a wow factor. That’s the case with New Balance’s Zante Pursuit’s laser-engraved single-material Fresh Foam midsole, which uses perforations for softer, lighter-weight cushioning. The uppers are engineered with a dynamic, foot-conforming fit, especially in the heel, where the collar foam and weave combine to lock in a secure hold. The Pursuit is light enough for race day but comfortable enough for everyday training.
