Read our review of the New Balance Fresh Foam 880 v12


The workhorse New Balance Fresh Foam 880 v12 gets reimagined with its softest foam ever.

When you step into the NB 880 v12, you’re lacing up one of the best neutral running shoes out there. New Balance upgraded this go-to daily trainer so its softer underfoot, has an amazing step-in feel and gives you an energetic ride.

For easy landings and a snappy transition, the 880 v12 is soft in the heel with a punchy toe-off. New Balance’s Fresh Foam X is softer than ever and makes up the foundation of the midsole. A denser layer of foam sits on top of the forefoot. The result is an amazing combination of cushion and energy return.

This reliable daily trainer is durable and stays comfortable over long miles. The 880 has a lot of outsole to hold up to a lot of running and the plush upper uses a stretchy double jacquard mesh that has strategically placed zones for support and ventilation.

Softer than ever and upgraded for an even better fit, the New Balance Fresh Foam 880 v12 continues to be a daily choice for runners of all levels.

Smaller than I remember

Bridget F 6 months ago Verified Purchase

I typically wear a size 6.5 but am finding that this 880 v12 runs small. I wish I had ordered a 7.

I’ve worn the New Balance 880 size 10D for the last decade. I had foot surgery 10 years ago and these were the only shoes that allowed me to continue running. I loved the past fit and the design. I’m so disappointed with the latest version. They feel like a completely different shoe! They are so sloppy large and soft that I can’t get any heel lift when running. Unfortunately I assumed they would be the same as my other 880’s and threw the box away on the day I received them. Otherwise I would return them. New Balance what happened? These aren’t running shoes any longer. Why change a product that has been so successful over the years????

I love my new shoes and would have given 5 stars except for 2 items I have loved on past shoes.Wish you had the Lace Lock which you tuck your laces in after they're tied and they never come untied or loose to trip on.Also wish you had the pull tab on the heel area around the back of the foot to pull up the shoe without using my hands to push from the bottom of a dirty shoe.

Soft and light

Ann D 1 year ago Verified Purchase

I love my new shoes! They feel like walking on a cloud (although I’ve never experienced that and think it could be pretty wet). The shoes are lightweight and don’t weigh down my backpack when packed for traveling. The sales staff in Bloomington can’t be beat!

The style seems to run small around toe box area compared to other styles.
