New Bal­ance Fresh Foam 1080 v7 £115

Runner's World (UK) - - Spring / Summer Shoe Guide 2017 -

The flag­ship cush­ion­ing shoe in the New Bal­ance range is now even more pil­lowy. There’s slightly more mid­sole foam, but feed­back sug­gests it’s been over­done: this was one of the most-cush­ioned shoes on test in the RW Shoe Lab but the re­sult was a sludgy ride that, when cou­pled with a lack of flex­i­bil­ity, caused run­ners to have to work harder just to pick up their feet. It’s com­fort­able, re­as­sur­ing and durable; just don’t ex­pect to go any­where too fast.
