First of all, I would start off by saying that this is not a stable shoe. It is not meant to be either, but the lack of support in the upper mesh, the thinner heal cap and the softness of the Hyposkin makes this a shoe mostly for neutral runners. I am close to not being able to use it myself but have spent the last twelve months actively training stability in order to start using this category of shoes in the future.
As a fast interval shoe or maybe a race shoe this instability doesn't matter that much, the most important thing if you need stability, is to use this shoe for the really fast runs and let other more stable shoes handle the heavy workload. That way you'll have benefit from the lightness and responsiveness of the shoe, with a smaller chance of injury.
Overall, the stability isn't really there, so if you are looking for a stable and lightweight shoe there are better options out there. The new New Balance 890v5 has both a firmer sole and more stability features. If you are looking for a soft and less intrusive shoe, this is surely a good shoe to try out.
The Zante is a very comfortable to wear. The soft and unsupportive upper mesh combined with the Hyposkin makes for a shoe that feels like the cozy slippers you wear when you're home. It's also very light, and it is very easy to notice how lovely it is to run fast in.
Most of my runs with this shoe has been the faster and shorter runs, and I believe that this is the best use for this shoe as well. You shouldn't be put off by that though, as the feeling of this shoe has given me a new perspective of what a fast shoe should feel like. I would much rather have a shoe like this in my arsenal for intervals and races, than too many of the long distance trainers.
Despite having used the same type of foam as the 1080 v8, the shoe feels a lot more responsive and a lot faster. The Fresh Foam in a thinner sole is also a little bit reminiscent of the Altra Escalante EGO sole, which is very flexible. This results in a good freedom of movement for every stride and it makes me feel like I'm flying.
6mm heel drop is the standard for many of the faster shoes from New Balance, but compared to the 1080, which is 8mm, I can't say that I notice the difference too much.
The grip of the shoe suits for running on dry gravel and asphalt. It doesn't have a deep pattern on the bottom sole, and looks to be more designed to get the most amount of surface contact for every stride. Running on wet or slippery surfaces could be a challenge.
