If we only made one running shoe, that shoe would be the 1080. What makes the 1080 unique isn’t just that it’s the best running shoe we make, it’s also the most versatile. The 1080 delivers top-of-the-line performance to every kind of runner, whether you’re training for world-class competition, or catching a rush hour train.
The fresh foam 1080 v 12 is a great shoe for training runs and long runs. It runs wide. The cushion is noticeably softer than other new balance running shoes. The only con is that if I tie them too tight, it rubs on the inside of my right foot.
Out sole is too soft so these trainers don't last. Comfy, lovely wide toe-box (why I run in NB), but have had to go to the 880s because they have a much more durable outsole. I barely get 200miles out of the 1080s so not worth the money.
