Fresh Foam Collection

Designed for neutral runners looking for plush cushioning, Fresh Foam Boracay and Fresh Foam Zante deliver a smooth ride that helps keep your run fresh mile after mile, with Fresh Foam Zante kicking up the speed when you don’t want to hold back.

Why 2 Fresh Foam
shoes are
better than 1

Some days you just want to feel fast. Others you need a little more cushioning to get you through. There’s a place for both Fresh Foam running shoes in your training routine.

The Rundown

Fresh Foam Zante

Designed from data gathered from runners at a faster pace, Fresh Foam Zante offers a quick, incredibly smooth heel to toe transition thanks to its aggressive toe spring, helping you feel fast, whatever pace you run.

Fresh Foam Boracay

Designed for runners looking for plush cushioning and premium materials, Fresh Foam Boracay has a little more substantial foam underfoot, making it ideal for long runs or heavy mileage.

Fit & Feel

Fresh Foam Boracay

Fresh Foam Boracay surrounds your foot in comfort with generous Fresh Foam cushioning underfoot and a soft, seamless upper that adds to the luxury ride.

Fresh Foam Zante

Sleek, snug and dialed in for speed, Fresh Foam Zante has a bootie-like design that wraps the foot like a second skin. Nothing is on the shoe that doesn’t need to be, making it feel like an extension of your foot.

Designer Notes

Fresh Foam Zante

The upper is locked in like a traditional lightweight trainer but it’s also very simple in the midsole and outsole, keeping the weight down and providing a really smooth transition from heel strike to toe off.

Fresh Foam Boracay

We hope that runners feel like they are in an unbelievably cushioned shoe that doesn’t let them down and that feels great at mile 1 to the end of that long run, or from day 1 to day 50 of their training cycle.

What the pros think

Wear tested by Team New Balance, these athletes have already put in the miles in both the Fresh Foam Zante and Fresh Foam Boracay. Here’s what they had to say.

Abbey D'Agostino

“(Fresh Foam Zante) is super form-fitting, especially around the arch, which I think is the most important.”

Emma Coburn

“The cushioning on the Fresh Foam Boracay is like a cloud! So perfect for short easy runs when my body needs that cushioning to recover, but also good for longer training runs when my feet and legs need something a little softer.”

Emma Coburn
Team NB Athlete
Jenny Simpson

“(Fresh Foam Zante)...it's like
Fresh Foam went pro!”
