    Sadly Too Narrow for Me

    "After lots of research I decided on these shoes. When I wore them they felt comfortable but they were too narrow. I usually wear the standard (b) width shoes but these were just too tight which led to an over all tight feeling. While I would recommend these shoes it would be for those looking for a narrow fit."

    Always my go-to shoe

    "The new Zante has a little bit more cushioning than the original. The toe box has flattened out a bit making it more comfortable for longer distance running and longer casual wear. I love this shoe, it fits my high arch comfortably and stays comfortable all day. I have several pairs and this addition to the Fresh Foam collection is amazing!"

    "This shoe is OK for summer wear, but I'm always getting my socks wet through it and have to change. Like the color but I don't wear it very often. Mostly wear my Fresh Foam 1080's for everyday wear and walking."

    Great Shoe

    "I've been training for a marathon and this has been my latest go-to shoe. I've put over 200 miles on it already and they're still standing strong (if not a bit muddy from the last race!). Very comfortable for me with no weird pressure points and the arch in the right place. I've never tried the Zante v1 so I can't compare, but I'd say that this is a good daily training shoe for most runners."

    "I selected this shoe in a d width to provide support and comfort; and it does both. They provide good support during exercise. It is an excellent all around shoe."

    Zante1 is better

    "I loved the Fresh Foam Zante 1. The cushion in the toe bed was the reason I ordered three of these shoes! When the Zante 2 came out, I immediately ordered. Alas, I will return them because they do not have the same cushion. Actually, compared to the Zante 1, I feel there is none. So bummed..."

    "The Zante is my active family's Goto shoe. Between me and my 3 kids in cross country we have 10 pairs. Nice balance of weight cushioning support and feel with a sharp style as well."

    Shoes ran way too short

    "I am a very true size 8.5 and these shoes ran so short that my toes were hitting the tip of the shoe. Barely any room to stand in them, never mind run. Ended up returning them."

    Good shoe

    "This shoes are comfortable, but they definitely have a very tight fit to them. They contour to the shape of your foot. If you like more room in your shoes, I would not advise buying them."

    Great Feel and speed, poor toe construction

    - Oahu, Hawaii

    MyNB Silver Member

    MyNB members may earn NB points for writing product reviews

    "I've been wearing these shoes for the past year and I really love the feel. The shoe is light, makes you feel fast, and they are extremely comfortable. I've gone as far as to log over 200 miles in one month without pain. This is the only shoe i've ever taken from the box and run a marathon or 1/2 marathon the next day without blisters. However, the construction, especially at the toe is poor. Living on Oahu, it rains a lot. Sometimes I have to run in the rain or stand in wet grass for military formations. The glue used to seal the front of the shoe is extremely susceptible to water and therefore peels away from the rest of the shoe quite easily. There are other things I find wrong with the construction, but I can forgive those; just not the front of the toe because that's embarrassing. IT's still my only running shoe but it's me a lot of money to constantly replace them. I've purchased 9 or 10 in the past year."

    Slightly Disappointed

    - St. Paul, MN

    "I love the feel of the shoe, however, it wears extremely quickly. I put 30 miles on them the first week I had them and It looks like I ran 100 miles."

    - Indiana

    "I own many pairs of NB shoes and usually wear a 10 - 10.5 N. This shoe was so short and tight that I couldn't even get my foot in it. I reordered a 10.5 and it was still way too short. Sending both pairs back!"

    Product has great feel when running

    - Henderson, NV

    "This is my third pair of Zante , They make me run faster because of their light weight and foam . Someone said they are the corvette of running shoes, I do agree."

    Jun 13, 2016

    This is my 3rd pair of the fresh foam zante's, love them!

    - New York, NY

    "Fit well and are very lightweight. Help me strike mid/forefoot. I've tried on several other pairs of running shoes (New Balance and other brands) and these are by far still my favorite!"

    Jun 11, 2016

    Second Pair and will be purchasing more!! I'm in love!

    - Raleigh, NC

    "Same great original fit with fun new colors!! I have wide fit and these are amazing. Light weight and cushioning!"

    Cute Shoe But Not Neutral

    - Boston, MA

    "These shoes are cute with great colors, but, as a slight overpronater these shoes really encourage a STRONG overpronation, at least for my foot. I think these would work best for an underpronator or with use of an orthotic. I have small, narrow feet, with low arches and so the scale, proportion and dimension of these, compared with other NB shoes, work great for me because I find many NB styles to be way too wide on my narrow foot, and imagine this would not work well for a wide foot. I normally wear a 6-6.5 in dress shoes and a 7-7.5 in athletic shoes, and the 7.5 is a good, if slightly roomy, fit for me."

    Zante has great "long run" feel

    - Colorado

    "Love, love , love the Zante for the "long run". It's light, yet cushy and responsive. I do most of my long runs on gravel roads which can sometimes hurt when you strike a rock....NOT with the Zantes....!!!"

    Feels like running on a cloud

    - Burlington, VT, USA

    "Love these shoes. Put them on right out of the box and ran 12 miles without a hitch. Haven't taken them off since!"

    Great shoe! Very light but still a strong sense of stability!

    Too small

    - Washington, DC, USA

    "I wore the first version of the Zante and loved it. I tried the second version on at a running store before ordering it online. When I got my order - size 8.5 - the same size I wore in my first Zante's and the size that fit in the store, they were too small and fit differently. I'm really disappointed there was such a discrepancy in the size. I won't be ordering a new size, as I have no idea how they will fit, as it seems they all fit differently."

    - Montebello

    "This brand was recommended to me by my podiatrist. Honestly, I hated the idea because they're not really my style, except for these! They just came in and they are SO cute! The most exciting part is that they are extremely comfortable and lightweight. My first thought was ordering another pair to add to my collection. Great purchase!"

    great shoe

    - Toronto, ON, Canada

    "This shoe is light, bright and most importantly comfortable!"

    Apr 4, 2016

    I love these shoes!

    - Denver, Colorado

    "This shoe combines a minimal drop with a light weight foam cushion that makes it comfortable for longer runs. I bought it in the D width to allow for my high instep and love the roominess in the toe box. I'm confident they'll still feel good when the summer heat arrives and the feet swell. Definitely my new fave!"

    Comfortable Shoe

    "Love the color, very lightweight, comfortable from day one and no need to break it in."

    Fresh Foam Zante

    "I have a wide foot and I love that I can order a wide shoe. Very responsive neutral shoe"

    Fantastic, flexible shoe

    - Phoenix, AZ

    "After having two bunions removed and an ankle ligament replacement within a three year period, the scar tissue in my feet was causing a lot of cramping during workouts, and the style of shoes I was wearing pre-surgery were aggravating the situation. This shoe is amazing! Very comfortable and allows enough flex so your foot isn't "frozen" inside the shoe. Being able to use more of the muscles in my feet while wearing a shoe has helped tremendously with keeping my workouts pain free."
