I can comfortably get 400+ miles out of the shoe. Even though it is lightweight, the rubber is extremely durable. As for the propulsive feeling underfoot, it does tend to fade after 100+ miles but I have not noticed this feeling to be significant enough for me to throw in the towel so to speak. The rebel was a great shoe because it proved that lightweight shoes don’t have to sacrifice durability. I hope they stick with this concept with the V2, and I hope the v1 will still be available once the v2 is released.
I do want to officially confirm that the New Balance Rebel v2 is slated to come out in 2021. We have it as an April launch. However, with the challenges in shipping the industry is facing, that date may move. Stay tuned to RW Social and TR message board. We will be putting out more information on the new Rebel soon!
