Soft and bouncy to put a pep in your step, the New Balance Fresh Foam X 1080 v13 will be your go-to shoe.
The New Balance 1080 v13 is plush and luxurious to make every run more comfortable and enjoyable. One runner stated "Running in the 1080 v13 feels like running on one of those huge bouncy balls that you’d get as a kid, and the experience is just as exciting as picking a new ball out," in our New Balance 1080 v13 review. The newest version has been fine-tuned to help your runs feel energetic, soft and effortless, making it one of the best running shoes out there.
So whether you are training for your first 5K or putting in high-mileage weeks, the New Balance Fresh Foam X 1080 v13 will make each run more fun.
New Balance elevated the Fresh Foam X 1080 v13 to make your daily runs easier. A new Fresh Foam X compound is lighter and softer, while giving you more pop so your feet don’t sink into the shoe. A new midsole geometry rolls you forward for smoother transitions and gives you energetic toe-offs. The result is a reduced heel-to-toe drop from 8 mm in the v12 to 6 mm in the latest version.
A new mesh upper feels plush on your feet. It is a little stretchy, yet has zonal structure to keep your foot locked in over that cushioning and provide more structure and support. New Balance also thinned out the rubber coverage on the bottom of the shoe to decrease the weight.
