New Balance Fresh Foam 1080 v11


[Looking for the latest version? The men's New Balance Fresh Foam 1080 v12 is now available.]

The men's New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v11 delivers premium cushion and top-notch performance to enhance your training.

New Balance loaded the new 1080v11 with a full-length Fresh Foam midsole. The choice cushion feels soft and bouncy under your feet, and it provides the smoothest ride at any distance or pace.

Designers knit a dynamic upper for zones of stretch and structure. The stretchiness in the toe box accommodates different foot shapes, while the structured midsole ensures a locked-in fit.

In the New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v11 review, Fleet Feet runners say the Ultra Heel design feels like it molds around your foot for a good fit, and the soft cushioning remains lightweight for an easy ride.

The Fresh Foam midsole in the New Balance 1080v11

The 1080 legacy continues with New Balance's updated iteration of a cushiony classic. An updated upper for added support meshes (pun intended) with the soft and supportive Fresh Foam midsole.

Fleet Feet reviewers took to the streets to put the 1080v11 to work. Here's what they thought.

New Balance Review

These shoes have performed very well. I’ve purchased two pair in the past two months and have about 150 miles on each. They’re stable, light, & provide plenty of support & cushion. The sole has held up very well. I’m 5’10”, 155lbs.

The shoe was recommended to me by my podiatrist for planters fasciitis. All I can say is it that she was awesome and enabled me to be active while having plantars fasciitis

Absolutely love these shoes. Soft enough to be comfortable the entire run but stiff enough to feel like it has support and will last several hundred runs!! Love them would get them over and over!!

Great fit and feel!

The New Balance Fresh Foam 1080 v11 is the best running show I've worn. The fit and feel are great. I run 7-8 miles each day, and I look forward to each run everyday. Thank you Fleet Feet for sending me a gem!
