The men's New Balance Fresh Foam Zante Pursuit is giving chase to the speediest shoes in your closet.
The Pursuit is the latest in the Zante family, and it comes with one big change: a redesigned upper.
The change from the New Balance Fresh Foam Zante v4 is the removal of the midfoot overlay in lieu of a clean Hypoknit upper. Instead of the overlay, the innovative knit upper deploys different zones of structure to provide support for the midfoot while keeping the forefoot stretchy. Removing the overlay also gives the Pursuit a smooth silhouette and modern look.
New Balance again used a full-length Fresh Foam midsole—the same type of cushion that’s also packed into the New Balance Fresh Foam 1080 v9, which Fleet Feet testers lauded for its light weight and bouncy response. Beneath all that foam is a grippy rubber outsole to protect the midsole and keep you grounded.
Whether you’re crushing a track workout or cruising through recovery, the Zante Pursuit will excel.
