The New Balance 996v4s have shed some weight compared to previous versions, making them super speedy and even more comfortable for 2020. To mark the release of this fourth version, the Boston-based company launched a bold, bright guava color that had our team instantly enamored. Injected with the cushioned yet responsive FuelCell, the midsole feels soft, but not too mushy underfoot. The Hypoknit upper adds support, while the outsole features a modified pattern for traction and comes with a six-month durability guarantee. Available in many colors and a wide width option, the 996v4s impressed our playtesters across the board. By the end of the playtest, our team agreed that these just might be some of the lightest and most comfortable shoes on the market today.
