New Balance 1080v3


  •   January 2013


The New Balance 1080 v3 offers you premium cushioning in a lightweight package. Featuring a responsive ride with plenty of rebound, this neutral trainer will keep you protected from the hard road no matter the length of your run. A breathable upper allows for airflow within the shoe to keep you cool, and no-sew overlays keep your run irritation free.

The New Balance 1080 v3 provides neutral runners comfort and protection in a lightweight running shoe. Synthetic mesh upper with no sew application. Blown rubber outsole with ABZORB® crash cushioning.

Setting the standard for neutral runners, the 1080v3 provides comfort and protection in a lightweight frame. With N2 heel cushioning and an ABZORB crash pad, the 1080 v3 can keep up, mile after mile.

These shoes felt good for mid to long range training runs.  I used them for long runs which the shoe felt solid,  sturdy and my feet felt very cushioned.
