New Balance Fresh Foam Beacon Shoe Review

Back to New Balance Fresh Foam Beacon

Long time fan of the Zante and the Saucony Kinvara, I was looking for something with a bit more cushion for longer runs without being too heavy. I heard some good things about these shoes so I gave them a shot. They are AWESOME - super comfortable at slower paces and have amazing energy return, making them good at faster paces/harder efforts. They hold up better than any shoe I've run it at longer distances too. On my last long run, they felt almost better the longer I ran in them.

Last ran in the Saucony Kinvara 9.

Reported liking the Saucony Kinvara 9 more than the New Balance Fresh Foam Beacon.
