Better than expectedAfter hearing and reading about the fresh foam, I decided to take the plunge and get a pair of these for casual running. Once I put them on, I fell in love with the cushioning and this are my go to shoes over the ones I have. Now I'm thinking about getting another pair.

Lightweight but not durableBought three for my husband that lives New Balance. Very pleased with the fit but after 2 weeks of normal wear, the rubber at the tips separated.

OK looking, OK running shoe!I generally liked the running experience although you can find better options for the price. The look is good from outside but not that great for the first person.

Best shoe I have found.Though I have only owned these shoes a few days I am very, very happy with them. I have severe arthritis in my right ankle. I have been buying and trying shoes to try and find just the right arch support, cushion and flexibility. I have literally bought over a dozen different brands, types models etc. After being on my feet for a full day while working on the house, the next day I could barely walk on my left foot. I went to Academy to see if I could find ANYTHING that might help. I was in the store for about 2-1/2 hours trying on shoes. I found these about 30 minutes into the search and they felt really good. I continued trying on different brands etc for the next hour or so and just kept coming back to these. I left them on for about another 45 minutes and walked up and down the aisles of the store. The biggest thing I noticed was that within a few minutes of wearing them my ankle had stopped hurting. I put on my old shoes and walked for a while and my ankle started hurting again. Put the Zante's back on and it quit hurting. I bought them and brought them home and wore them for a few more hours in the house just to see if it was my imagination but sure enough, my ankle did not hurt and the swelling started to subside. I have worn them literally non stop while awake for the past 3 days and my ankle is as pain free as it has been for several years. I am sold and may go back and buy another pair or two to put in reserves just in case NB changes the design in the near future. I have no idea how durable they are but as for comfort they get 5 stars plus. One word of warning the shoe runs about 1/2 size smaller than most other brands. I normally wear a 10-1/2 but am wearing an 11 in this shoe. I found this to be true in most of the NB models.

I am just wondering if you have New Balance Running shoes on 14 Number. M1980MJ, I found it in your store in Amarillo TX just in # 13 but there are a little small for me. Thanks
