The MV3 is the update to the MV2, the 3 advancing the MV2 name, a reference to the formula for momentum. The MV3 addresses the upper and maintains the five lug technology which were both done well in the MV2, but have been upgraded, performance-wise in the MV3.
The upper trades the gauzy mesh matrix of the original for an open mini-mesh, that is both more durable as well as sturdier, including a stretchy arch band that combines to hold the foot better at top speeds. Significantly, the weight shed from the upper is more than a 20 percent weight loss in a men's size 11. The midsole has a responsive feel, very minor tweaks to its predecessor dial in the shoe a bit, and it retains the zero drop geometry, welcome news on both counts to fans of the shoe. The outersole also continues with the same carbon rubber lugs, and carbon rubber in the heel that made the traction and durability of the original an effective and efficient racer. Runners looking for a reliable, zero drop racer should consider the MV3.
