About this deal

As a result, the first thing you notice when you pick up the Rebel v2 is that it’s unexpectedly lightweight. The unpadded tongue, the thin mesh and the streamlined silhouette all scream speed work, but the plush midsole and grippy outsole hold up to everyday training, too. OUR VERDICT The New Balance FuelCell Rebel v2 is a lightweight daily trainer that's best suited to easy and steady runs. So there you have it - an unedited review of the New Balance FuelCell Rebel V2 from 4 Melbourne runners.

Kat Newton plays VFLW for Hawthorn, and runs most days to keep fit for footy and for the social connection. The FuelCell midsole in the first version of the shoe felt denser than the new model; this second version feels lightweight, soft and bouncy.The only weakness of the Rebel v2 is that its outsole areas which aren’t covered with rubber get chewed up by the ground so I don’t expect durability to be good. Josh McCormack is a professional triathlete who lives in Abbotsford, and Eleanor Raper swims like a fish, is a physiotherapist, and runs most days with her friends around Albert Park and inner Melbourne. Wearing these is like strapping on fluffy angel food cake to your feet, and you just don’t want to ever take them off.

After around 50 miles in the shoe, there’s already very visible wear in the forefoot rubber of the v3 (lower shoe above). I have the impression the heel outsole is a slightly different and more resistant material, so if you’re a heel striker or have a less aggressive toe-off than I do, wear might be less of an issue.

It’s one of the best-looking trainers I own and it somehow feels retro/nostalgic and modern at the same time.
