The New Balance 1400 v2 is one of my favorite shoes – simple, lightweight, and affordably priced. It’s also a very popular shoe among readers of this website, so I wanted to share the news that an update is on the way. Yesterday I was alerted in a comment that version 3 of the 1400 has popped up on the Road Runner Sports website, with a release date in early April. Here’s a photo:
According to Sam Winebaum, v3 is just an upper update, with a “softer internal fit, and less areas of vulnerability at flex in the forefoot areas.” I did find the interior of v2 to be a bit rough, so this sounds promising, and it’s good to hear that the sole will remain the same. Very excited about this one!
