From New Balance: Switch into high gear in the lightweight design of the New Balance 1400v3. This competition running shoe is built for top speed. It features a barely there upper for a secure fit, REVlite® responsive midsole and overall enhanced stability without compromising on performance whether you’re doing speedwork or heading toward the finish line in record time.
The New Balance 1400 has been my go-to racing flat for 2.5 years. It feels light, fast, and comfortable for track workouts and tempo runs and provides just enough cushioning to get me through a marathon. I use it regularly for speed workouts and races, but I like a little more cushioning for recovery days. My only wish is that the toe box was slightly roomier. FYI, after about 200 miles, this shoe is done for me, even when the tread looks okay.
