NEW BALANCE FF MORE V4: HIGHLIGHTS
Engineered Mesh offers structure while remaining lightweight, breathable and flexible, ensuring a secure lockdown while keeping the weight low
The Fresh Foam x with Bio Eva compound provides endless cushioning, obviaously taking into account the 35mm/31 mm stack height, so it will be comfortable no matter how far you go. As an example of its direct competitor, the HOKA Bondi 8 has a stack height of 33mm/29mm so this More V4 have extra 2 mm of cushioning which is also translated into a bigger chassis.
Durable rubber outsole provides longevity and excellent traction and the zonal rubber placement enable some weight savings
NEW BALANCE FRESH FOAM MORE V4: CONCLUSIONS
The new NEW BALANCE FF MORE V4 are neutral shoes for those runners who prefer extra comfort which comes from these 35 mm/31 mm of the Fresh Foam midsole, to run long, long, long.
Updated with a wide platform base, brings the ideal combination of plush cushion and support. Plus, the rocker-style build propels us forward for a quick turnover and less stress on our body. If you love high cushion, then the New Balance Fresh Foam More v4 could be one of you dream shoe, similar in numbers to the HOKA Bondi 8.
Lots of cushioning as one of the most (if no the most) maximalist shoe in the market with these 35mm in the heel and 31 mm in the toe area, which adds two extra millimeters to the previous version, to keep a 4mm drop. And not only increases cushioning, but also decreases the weight with this 305 grams in the size 8.5 US, which bring them very close to the 300 grams mark.
On the numbers looks really, really good for these less thin runners or anybody looking for a great cushioned shoe for daily training and long distances. Another thing would be to see how the increase of the midsole is translated into more or less stability on the sides, but for that we will have to wit until we might get a pair of them from New Balance.
