Read our review of the New Balance Fresh Foam Vongo v5


The New Balance Fresh Foam Vongo v5 blends the best of Fresh Foam cushioning with creatively designed medial stability elements to deliver a supported ride mile after mile. A thick bed of New Balance’s Fresh Foam provides the shock absorption and cushion you need to feel comfortable on any run. Designers updated the Vongo v5 with a segmented outsole to provide dialed-in stability exactly where you need it.

The Vongo v5 uses a unique Hypoknit mesh upper for a smooth, socklike feel that is equally huggy and airy. This keeps the shoe feeling ventilated without compromising on support throughout the midfoot. A rounded toe box accommodates natural toe-splay as you run, adding to the stabilized feel of the shoe.

What's New

New Balance designers added 5 mm of foam to the medial side of the Vongo v5, making the ride feel even more stable without adding weight. A segmented outsole allows more flexibility while strategically placing stability elements exactly where you need them. Finally, an updated knit mesh upper is lighter and more breathable than before for an easy, breezy feel on the run.

Who It's Best For

Looking for a lightweight stability shoe? This is it. A medial post system supports overpronators at the arch to eliminate excess strain and uneven wearing. The thick bed of Fresh Foam midsole foam absorbs shock and keeps you comfortable over daily miles. All of this comes wrapped in a lightweight package built to handle any run.

Why You'll Love It

The updated mesh upper fits like a sock but breathes like you’re barefoot. It blends seamlessly into a bucket-seat heel cup that stabilizes the heel and offers padded support to the Achilles. That means no rubbing and no blisters. Paired with the uniquely flexible stability system in the midsole, the Fresh Foam Vongo v5 is a do-it-all shoe.

Spring in my Step

Plenty of room in the forward cabin the laces and toe box do not interfere with my bunion so these sneakers are extremely comfortable. Plenty of stretch! The mens size is wide consequently it has become my only option. Foot bed is amply cushioned for 4-5 mile walks.

These shoes have helped me get over my PF. I've been fighting PF for a year and while beating PF requires a number of things these shoes are very important. They will probably be my go to shoes when I have to replace my current pair.

I have recently purchased a pair of New Balance Fresh Foam Vongo's v5 and have only worn them for a few days they are very comfortable have plenty of cushion on the bottom of my feet. This is exactly what I was looking for I am an older guy and need that softer bottom and cushion and I really like the way they look. Fermin Garcia Tucson AZ.
