The men's New Balance Fresh Foam 880v10 is the latest in the long line of New Balance running shoes to take on the 880 name—and it’s the best one yet.
A new bed of soft Fresh Foam gives the 880v10 a buttery ride, and a refreshed upper gives the shoe a premium feel. The design overhaul lends the 880v10 a more aggressive look without losing the dependable feel of the previous generation.
In the New Balance 880v10 review, Fleet Feet testers praised the feel of the Fresh Foam midsole, saying it’s softer and bouncier than ever before.
While making major updates to a beloved running shoe can be daunting, designers nailed the upgrade in the men's New Balance Fresh Foam 880v10.

Good Looking and Good Running
This is arguably the best looking running shoes I have ever owned. They're subtly cool without being garish. They are comfortable to walk in (alas, my running days are over due to age and knee issues), and they feel very supportive. They run true to size, too. It's a lot of shoe for a reasonable price.
New Balance Fresh Foam 880 v10
Assuming 5 is the choice for highest quality and most satisfaction, I chose 5 on these shoes. I've worn them rucking for a few weeks now and have really enjoyed them. They cushion the feet extremely well and are breathable. I've also been impressed by the durability. I alternate daily with a pair of Brooks Ghost 13 and am hard-pressed to tell a significant difference, which is good for my feet. I can usually tell when I'm nearing the end of the line with a pair of shoes when I start to notice some foot pain towards the end of a normal ruck. So it was, which led to this purchase. I'm glad to report since working the New Balance Fresh Foam 880 v10 into my shoe rotation, I've not dealt with any foot pain. Thanks to Fleet Feet staff for conducting a thorough fitting, understanding how I use the shoes, and making the recommendation to purchase these shoes. I am a satisfied customer.
New Balance Greatness
New Balance Fresh Foam is a great combination of cushion and descent stability. They are great for either that longer run or just a walk in the park!
Great Shoe, very comfortable, use it for Pickleball
Not as comfortable as earlier versions of the 880
I've had at least five pairs of 880 v8/v7, several still in use, and really like them. Unfortunately, the v10 is just not as comfortable, especially in the forefoot, On the positive side, the shoes (green) are very good looking, and right now they're heavily discounted given that v11 is out.
