New Balance describe the men's 1080v12 road running shoe as: "The 1080 is the pinnacle offering from New Balance’s running lineup. A combination of top-of-the-line performance technology and wide-ranging accessibility offers runners at every level of intensity more comfort over more distance. Simply put, there isn’t another shoe quite like the 1080. The 1080v12 fine tunes the cushioning, weight, and flexibility ratio that makes the 1080 so adaptable to the stresses that occur during the course of a run. Signature Fresh Foam X cushioning technology is paired with a lightweight, engineered knit upper, focused on breathability and stretch, and strategic supporting elements.
1080v12 Compared to an 880v12?
Compared to the 880v12, the 1080v12 has a larger amount of softer cushioning, making it a great shoe for new runners and experienced runners during recovery days. The 880v12 is a little more responsive and is considered a more versatile shoe for those wanting to run faster, perhaps during intervals and other types of training, plus racing.
1080v12 Compared to an 8608v13?
Compared to the 860v13, the 1080 is neutral and higher cushioning, whereas the 860v13 offers support for mild to moderate overpronation.
If we made only one running shoe, it would be the Fresh Foam 1080. Not only is it our pinnacle running model, it’s an exercise in versatility. Its data-informed construction coupled with statement style makes for the best option for serious and casual runners alike.
