New Balance Nitrel V4 vs. V3

  • More comfort and bounce. Thanks to the Dynasoft cushioning, the fourth version supplies a more plush underfoot sensation in contrast to its precursor. The lightweight shoe also has better responsiveness to increase the speed of the racer. 
  • Multi-surface grip. Featuring a revamped version of the previous model’s AT Tread outsole, the running platform is not only designed to tackle the trails but also on-road activities. 
  • Improved protection. This is all owed to the enhanced mesh upper of the shoe which dons a more enclosed design to keep debris out.
