The pinnacle of performance technology, the New Balance Fresh Foam X 1080 v12 works well whether you are running a marathon, walking your first mile or standing all day at work.

The signature Fresh Foam X midsole foam in the 1080 v12 is New Balance’s most cushioned Fresh Foam experience for ultimate comfort. It features 3% bio-based content that is made from renewable resources to help reduce the carbon footprint. New Balance tweaked the cushioning, dropped weight and improved flexibility so you can adapt to all of the different stresses that occur during a run.

The Hypoknit upper is breathable and stretchy to accommodate many foot shapes, making it a great shoe for those individuals with bunions or who like a wider forefoot. It is designed with strategic areas of stretch and support for a more dialed-in fit. The gusseted tongue and bootie upper hugs your foot for a snug, supportive fit.

New Balance redesigned the heel shape and reverted back to a more traditional, padded heel collar, so you get a more lockdown fit. The heel does still have a bit of a flair to make it easier to put on and get out the door.

Consistently listed as one of the best running shoes, the new New Balance 1080 v12 continues on the tradition of excellence.

Not as good as the old model

Fresh foam X More v4 are softer and have better support than these new models. Short term they are decent but not awesome - we’ll see on the long term. I will admit that in this price range the new balance shoes have been the best I have found

A Satisfied Customer

I bought the sneakers for my son. He likes the New Balance necause he has wide feet. I introduce him to the Fresh Form 1080 v10 a couple years ago and he likes how it feels on his feet and when walking.

Solid and consistent performance, many pairs over!

My husband loves these shoes to run in, and i have purchased him pairs in red, black, and bright yellow in the past. this is another classic black with white pair that perform perfectly. P.S. I also buy a pair for myself to walk/hike in and love them, but don't tell the runners.

Comfy at first, feet hurt now

Shoes were stylish and comfortable on first wear. Working in healthcare and being on my feet all day, my feet hurt constantly with these shoes.
