The New Balance 1400 v3 is a versatile racing flat with simple construction, good quality materials and some cushioning (at least more than the radical 1600 v2) ready to tackle from speed work and tempo workouts to distances as long as marathon. This third edition features a softer interior that enables sockless use without irritation.
Biggest change from its predecessor the 1400 v2 takes place in the upper with the adoption of a breathable mesh with welded overlays. Besides increasing visibility under poor light conditions, the well known New Balance's logo is now bigger and has been strategically placed to strenghten synthetic overlays for better fit.
The 1400 v3 keeps what is was working fine: REVlite® midsole delivers responsive and light cushioning while blown rubber outsole provides enough grip (even on wet surfaces or tracks) to support fast runs.
