New Balance RC1400 v3 Coming Soon

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!

  1. If they managed to take the v2’s mid/outsole and put it on a less rough and better-fitting upper, I’ll buy 10. The upper was a show-stopper for me.

    I have a question for you?
    Where the store at Daytona beach for new balance 1400 V3 please.

  3. These are now available on NB’s website. The outsole looks identical. Otherwise, I see fewer overlays, better laces, and maybe a somewhat different heel counter.
