New Balance Fresh Foam Beacon v3
Go farther, faster in the men's New Balance Fresh Foam Beacon v3.
The latest Beacon sports a full bed of New Balance’s premier Fresh Foam technology. The proven foam composition is lightweight and supremely cushioned for an easy ride from first step to last.
An engineered mesh upper is light and airy for a barely-there feel, and New Balance’s Ultra Heel design cradles the back of the foot for a locked-in fit.
On the outsole, designers incorporated abrasion-resistant rubber in high-wear areas—just under the big toe and in the heel. Not only does the rubber give you grip right where you need it, it also adds durability to the shoe without weighing it down.
Runners looking to log big miles in a hurry will love the updated men's New Balance Fresh Foam Beacon v3.

Good, like the original better.
Had three pair of the original New Balance Beacon and they are among my favorite running shoes of all time. Their fit was spot on and felt both well cushioned and responsive. I skipped V2 but decided to give V3 a try. V3 are still cushioned/responsive but don't feel quite as much so as the original. They also are an ounce heavier and fit a tad big. I find myself wearing thicker socks than normal. In addition the heal feels slightly strange, like it is loose although it doesn't slip at all. Having said all that my first run in them was 12 miles with no blisters or other issues. Unlike V1 I probably won't end up with 3 pair of these as recently I'm digging the Brooks Hyperion Tempo better, but they should still be plenty good for knocking out some miles.
