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.
- Upper: A completely new upper gives you a plush and luxurious feel with a stretchy mesh that has zonal structure and support to feel great on your foot. There is also a gusseted tongue to wrap around your feet and keep you secure.
- Midsole: A lighter, softer and more energetic Fresh Foam X with Bio Eva cushioning has been elevated to help you perform your best. An updated rocker profile makes transitions smoother and toe-offs more energetic. The forefoot is more responsive and a bit more structured than previous versions to help those miles roll by.
- Outsole: NDurance rubber outsole is durable to keep up with your mileage. New Balance made it a little thinner to reduce the overall weight of the shoe and keep you ticking off those miles.

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.

“The New Balance 1080 v13 are soft and responsive. Great for those easy recovery runs. Post run, I tried some strides in them and they aren’t as fast as other shoes. However, they are a great trainer for everyday use and maybe even for tempos.”Jessel P.Outfitter
