Arriving in March, the newly updated 880 continues to be a versatile, reliable everyday trainer with a traditional 10 millimeter heel-to-toe drop. Fresh Foam X in the midsole provides great cushioning and a noticeable pop in the forefoot. The outsole remains the same, while the upper has been completely retooled. Gone is the Hypoknit upper, replaced by a soft, well-fitting double jacquard engineered mesh upper. Version 10’s rather stiff heel counter has become more pliable. If the New Balance 880 is your shoe, you will love the update. If you are looking for a versatile everyday trainer with good cushion and a traditional “drop” you need to try the New Balance 880 v11.
