Comfort Meets Performance - New balance 1080 v13 Review

New Balance just released the newest member of the Fresh Foam X family, the Fresh Foam X 1080v13.

The soft and comfortable yet light and bouncy Fresh Foam X 1080v13 represents a significant leap forward in New Balance's innovation and craftsmanship.

Designed to redefine the running experience of the widest segment of the market, the new shoe offers supremely soft cushioning, elevated comfort, and an improved fit for all runners. It combines a fusion of comfort and high-performance features, making it the preferred choice for a wide range of running scenarios, from everyday training to competitive racing.

Research and development from the New Balance Sports Research Lab includes the introduction of a new outsole design that increases forefoot stiffness and features an enhanced rocker profile. The combination improve your transition between strides, allowing runners to roll forward through their stride with greater comfort than ever.

At only 265 grams the higher stacked shoe boasts more cushioning for a soft and lightweight feel. The Fresh Foam X compound, paired with increased midsole stack heights, ensures a comfortable run, regardless of the distance.

New Balance proudly sits at the intersection between sport and culture, and this ethos is reflected in the Fresh Foam X 1080v13. The shoe features a new engineered mesh with reflective details and a structured fit, making it a worthy choice for both performance and all-day wear. The amount of cushioning in the sole and comfortable support in the upper are achieved at a surprisingly light weight. That’s a win for runners.

Danny Orr, General Manager for Tech Running at New Balance, emphasized the significance of this release, stating, "The Fresh Foam X 1080v13 truly is a manifestation of research, development, and design innovation for the brand. As one of the most popular running shoes New Balance has to offer, we wanted to improve the overall experience, cushioning, and style. Through these innovations, we made the Fresh Foam X 1080v13 the perfect shoe for all types of runners."
