The New Balance 1080 series has consistently delivered a highly cushioned training option for the runner looking to experience a plush, smooth ride. In the sixth version of the 1080, the shoe received a complete redesign that featured an all new Fresh Foam midsole for an even softer underfoot feel and a smoother ride. Now, with the release of version 7, the shoe maintains the backbone of v6 while fine tuning several small details for an enhanced running experience.
The 1080 v7 will continue to provide a plush underfoot feel by utilizing a Fresh Foam midsole. While the midsole geometry shapes have been slightly modified to further enhance cushioning, the shoe should maintain a very similar ride to its predecessor. The hexagon pattern and flex grooves on the outsole have also been slightly tweaked based on data from runners and should provide small enhancements.
On the upper, a new mesh is utilized to increase comfort and offer a more adaptable midfoot wrap. We expect this shoe to continue to deliver a plush and luxurious feel around the foot that will be great at a variety of distances.
