New Balance Fresh Foam 1080 v11


The women'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.

Not as good as previous version

I loved my old 1080’s! They had great cushion and felt good on my wide width/ high instep foot. Well, this new version still has the nice cushion, but they changed the upper. It is now a booty fit with an elastic piece on the sides to hug the top of your foot to the bottom of the shoe. It was too tight for my high instep. I returned my side D with and got a size EE width. Never had to do that before. The EE feels better, but because of the “booty”, it’s just not as comfortable on the top of my foot. There seems to be less padding on the top. Also, the laces don’t go down as low, so I can’t adjust for my high instep as easily as I could on my previous model. Overall, I’ll keep them because there isn't anything else out there that will fit my foot, but I really really miss the old version. New Balance, why mess with a good thing?

The best athletic shoe I've ever worn

These shoes fit my wide feet perfectly and the cushy sole provides just the right amount of arch support. Breathable and light, I've been using these for pilates, running, and weight training and they haven't let me down yet. True to size.

they look good

I love the look and finally found a great color. The comfy foam was awesome when I tried it on, but long walking or any running makes it feel like there is no foam under the ball of my foot

What a relief!!

So very grateful to your salesperson Kim for being so awesome! She helped me through all the testing and fitted me with the perfect shoe. I had been suffering with awful blisters and was wearing the wrong size shoe (who knew?). Now I am able to walk in full comfort and no more blisters! I highly recommend her and your staff!

This is one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever purchased! I especially love the upper heel where it turns out. It never digs into the back of your ankle.
