The New Balance Fuelcore Coast V3 is a neutral road running shoe. It was designed to be both comfortable and sporty. It has an ACTEVA midsole with a laser engraved logo. It also features a contact ground EVA outsole that adds cushioning and bounce to each step, as well as good traction and ground feel. The NB Response 2.0 Performance insert adds, even more, cushioning to the footbed and returns energy back to the wearer. Its textile, synthetic and upper is constructed to easily slip on and is flexible enough to accommodate different foot shapes. The bootie construction creates a sock-like feel that's comfortable enough to wear all day long. The synthetic saddle around the heel and midfoot provides support and light stability. It also has a no-sew application to prevent irritation and a breathable upper to allow ventilation. The 8mm drop means more cushioning in the heel for comfort and forward momentum. If you are a neutral runner in need of a cushioned gym or competition shoe, continue reading to see if the Fuelcore Coast V3 is right for you.
The upper was constructed to easily slip on and off and has a sock-like feel. The no-sew application prevents irritation and blisters. The speed laces and synthetic saddle provide a comfortable fit around the heel and midfoot. The lightweight, breathability, responsiveness and support also make the shoe more comfortable to wear for longer periods of time. Testers did note that the cushioning tends to stay crushed if worn on longer runs, so this is not a good half or full marathon shoe.
