The New Balance Fresh Foam 1080 has been making waves Everywhere. Outsize Magazine featured the New Balance 1080 as the cover shoe and as a great buy for anyone that loves cushioning and a plush ride.
The Test: The Fresh Foam totally revamps New Balance’s tired 1080 line, and we loved the new look and feel. With its fat, bootie-construction tongue, extra-thick slab of springy foam, slow-cinching, stretchy laces, and streamlined upper, the 1080 won our vote for best slip-on comfort of the test—think Ugg boot for the workout set. On the road, it’s definitely slow and sluggish (“More squish, less rebound,” said one tester) but also deliciously smooth and not overstacked. A great alternative to some of the massive shoes out there.
We think it’s a must-try, find it in a New Balance store near you. We’d love to hear your feedback. -New Balance Tampa
