Perfect for those looking at hiking long distances with extreme comfort, the New Balance Zante v3s took me the whole 100 miles on the South Downs Way and probably well over 200 miles since purchase. They dry fast and are incredibly light so are ideal for thru-hikers walking a well-maintained trail.
The grip on the Zantes is very shallow, so I wouldn’t recommend these for cross-country or all season walking on wet, muddy terrain. I didn’t get blisters for at least 60 miles on the South Downs Way, so are super comfortable, but the cushioning is so soft it can make your feet slip. So do pay attention in these and tighten your laces as often as possible.
