The tried and tested—and tested and tested and tested—New Balance 880 is back.
Designers created the women's New Balance 880v9 to be your everyday training shoe, and it doesn’t disappoint. The engineered mesh upper stretches where you need it to in the forefoot but provides breathable support in the midfoot to keep you secured over the footbed.
New Balance didn’t change much from the 880v8, so the ride and fit are familiar to runners who have worn the shoe before. The most noticeable tweak is the look of the mesh upper: The new version uses fewer overlays for a cleaner look.
Flex grooves cut into the outsole allow your foot to bend naturally as you roll from heel to forefoot, and grippy outsole rubber keeps you under control even when you pick up the pace.
Fleet Feet testers loved that the shoe stayed true to form. In our review of the New Balance 880v9, runners said it matches an accommodating fit with an easy ride.
So whatever goal you’re planning to tackle next, the New Balance 880v9 will help you reach it.
