New Balance Men's 1080 v12
The New Balance 1080 has always been that high mileage shoe offering premium cushioning but with updates from top to bottom we feel that the version 12 might be the best yet!
Last years version offered a great underfoot feel but there were some struggles with the upper. The Ultra Heel was a great idea, but it just didn’t fit all feet. The upper was super comfortable, but perhaps had just a little too much stretch. Those issues have all been answered with the version 12.
The redesigned heel and upper provide an improved fit that is slimmed down through the midfoot for a more secure lockdown without losing its roomier toe box and the new Fresh Foam X midsole provides a softer ride and more bounce than ever before.
Whether it be for logging big miles or going for short jogs, the 1080V12 seems to be a winner but do consider sizing down a half size from your regular size as the V12 does seem to fit a little long.
