Born from Fresh Foam

Fresh Foam was created out of an obsession over the needs of runners and how they move through their gait cycle. For the next generation, the Fresh Foam Zante NYC, we studied runners that were even faster. The result is a shoe with a quick, incredibly smooth heel to toe transition, helping you feel fast, no matter what pace you run.

Sock-like fit hugs your
foot for a snug,
supportive feel
Fit to be Fast

The Fresh Foam Zante NYC fits like a supportive sock, hugging your arch while allowing your toes to spread out comfortably. Compared to the original Fresh Foam 980, its sleek fit feels more like a racing flat. The toe spring helps the shoe look fast and feel fast, assisting with the quick transition of the foot from heel to toe.

“The fit is very flexible. I like the fact that the tongue is attached to the shoe so it doesn't move around.” Brenda Martinez, Team NB Athlete

“What I like about the Fresh Foam Zante is that there is nothing on this shoe that doesn't need to be there; it feels like an extension of my foot.” Kyle Strek, Product Designer

“It’s super form-fitting, especially around the arch, which I think is the most important. It feels softer than the original Fresh Foam.” Abbey D'Agostino, Team NB Athlete
