I had the opportunity to take the FuelCell Prism V1 on a couple runs. I come from the land of wide toe boxes and zero drop, but with that being said, the miles I put on the Prism were enjoyable. I went on a short fartlek run of four-ish miles. The 6mm drop did change my gait on the normal and slow paced portions, so I would not be able to use the Prism for long runs or recovery paced runs. (A second run of about seven miles confirmed this, and that the toe box is still too narrow for me). When I cranked up the speed, (mid foot/forefoot strike only) the 6mm drop was no longer an annoyance, and the midsole felt great, plush with some good responsiveness. The toe bevel turns you over quickly. The FuelCell Prism V1 is a worthy shoe for plush speedwork. New Balance came up with a really good shoe, especially considering it's the first version! If I was used to the high(er) drop and pointy toe box of most running shoes, I could see the Prism being one of my go to shoes.
After my favorite trainer of all time (New Balance Vazee Prism) was discontinued I was very happy to see the Prism make it's comeback with a great update to the midsole with New Balance's FuelCell foam. The FuelCell Prism is one of the few shoes I can confidently say I could use for any type of run whether that be a workout, easy run, or recovery run. As someone with a wider, flatter foot this definitely helps support my foot nicely for an entire run. Excited to put more miles in these shoes!
I like how the shoes look with a sleek upper design. This light weight shoe is perfect for daily miles and workouts.
Really enjoyed taking the Fuelcell Prism out for my tempo efforts. The shoe is very lightweight with a firmer feel to it. Love how the upper hugs your foot. The 6 mm drop makes your stride feel efficient and effortless. Cant wait to do more runs in it.
This is a very comfortable performance shoe. The upper is very lightweight and breathable with a cool design. The 6mm drop allows you to feel low and close to the ground. I usually wear neutral shoes but enjoyed the medial post on this shoe for the added support. I use this shoe for tempo runs and Orangetheory workouts and feel fast doing so. I would definitely recommend this shoe on all of your speed days!
