New Balance 1080v8 Fresh Foam Women’s Running Shoes
The eighth iteration of the Fresh foam 1080 for women uses the data-driven input to deliver premium underfoot support. This model improves upon its predecessors with newly reconfigured flex grooves on the blown rubber outsole.
Engineered Breathable Mesh Upper
The upper of the 1080v8 running shoes are constructed of a breathable mesh. The mesh allows air to fully permeate the entire upper, providing a constant supply of fresh, cool air while simultaneously pushing out hot, muggy air. The upper also employs synthetic overlays which provide added durability and a more wrap around fit. The overlays work with the traditional lacing system to wrap around the foot providing a locked-in fit, preventing any slipping in the shoes. Additionally, a moulded foam collar and a no-sew bootie fit offer extra comfort, eliminating any chafing or skin irritation that can occur during the longer miles.
Fresh Foam Midsole
The full-length Fresh Foam keeps the cushioning generally consistent and improves the transition in the gait cycle. The innovative technique of making the medial side a bit firmer and more elevated smoothly and gradually holds off overpronation. The Fresh Foam 1080v8 is still fitted with the New Balance signature plush, but firm and responsive cushioning.
Blown Rubber Outsole
The outsole is dominated by blown rubber in most parts. There are various lugs of different sizes and shapes that afford excellent traction on the road and groomed trails. A noteworthy inclusion is the deep and substantial cuts that run from the heel to the midfoot which increases flexibility and helps with the movement from the heel to the forefoot.
