There’s a reason New Balance says that if they were only to make one running shoe, it would be the Fresh Foam X 1080. The Fresh Foam X 1080 delivers top-of-the-line performance to runners seeking maximum, premium cushioning in a go-to reliable shoe. And now, the 1080v13 is building on the popular model’s signature qualities.
New Fresh Foam X Experience
New Balance has been at the forefront of cushioning technology with its Fresh Foam X midsole technology. This innovative material is engineered to provide a plush, responsive, and consistent cushioning experience with 3D-printed design.
In the Fresh Foam X 1080v13, you can expect updated midsole mapping, which applies more foam to a wider area of the midsole and increases flexibility at the narrower point, as well as an increased midsole stack height for more comfort. The 1080v13 also has 4mm of foam to stack the heights! The result? The new Fresh Foam X compound provides increased energy return and softer cushioning, all while being a lighter weight.
It’s not just the midsole that’s seen an update. The rubber outsole uses the new NDurance technology, a design based on and development from the New Balance Sports Research Lab. The NDurance outside gives the shoe superior durability, increased forefoot stiffness and an enhanced rocker profile, which makes for smoother transitions.
In simpler terms, the new Fresh Foam X cushioning is perfect for long-distance runners and anyone looking to maximize comfort during their workouts.
The Fresh Foam X 1080v13 is also using new the SmoothRoll Technology design in the outsole template, this helps for the smoothest cushioning ride in the market heel-to-toe, with extra attention applied to transitions for a runner, spending less time on both heel and toe rocker, and an outsole design giving a more energetic toe-off.
