NEW BAL­ANCE FUELCORE QUICK V3 TRAINER

Canadian Running - - FALL SHOE GUIDE -

Uni­sex 280 g (8.9 oz.); Drop ra­tio: 6 mm; $120

The FuelCore Quick v3 is aptly named, as it’s de­signed for shorter, ex­plo­sive ef­forts. While the shoe is re­mark­ably ver­sa­tile, it’s aimed pri­mar­ily as a solid in­tro to run­ning, and can do dou­ble duty in the gym per­form­ing well in a va­ri­ety of tasks. Where the FuelCore Quick v3 re­ally ex­celled was in short in­ter­val train­ing, and dur­ing easy 30– 60 minute runs.

The up­per em­ploys a ver­sion of New Bal­ance’s ex­cel­lent Fan­tomFit de­sign that both looks sharp and sup­ports the foot dur­ing ag­gres­sive move­ment. The shoe also looks great, with a clean mod­ern at­ti­tude that works well as a ca­sual shoe as much as it does a trainer. The mid­sole is rather thin and firm, which is of course ideal for what it’s de­signed to do: move pow­er­fully and quickly for shorter pe­ri­ods.
