    1080v6 durability

    - Huntsville, AL

    "After wearing these for 4 months, the outsole is completely crushed. I thought the slightly firmer foam would hold up, but it hasn't. My old 880s lasted over a year. I'm really disappointed. Very uncomfortable because the lateral foam has no support I'm walking on the sides of my feet (supinator)."

    Left vs Right also

    MyNB members may earn NB points for writing product reviews

    "I have the same issue that the person below commented on. I have put about 20 miles on these shoes and the left one is causing arch pain and fatigue on the outer part of my left foot. The right shoe is perfectly fine however. This is the first pair of NB's where I have had this issue. I have been buying the same size and width for over 10 years. I am going to try and break them in some more but I think this is a defect of some sort."

    left VS right

    "Left shoe causes arch pain and the right shoe is fine ; I only use this shoes to walk indoors and have only put about 4 miles on them. In fairness I have two other pair of NB fresh foam's and they are comfortable. I have not contacted NB about returning the shoes of possible defect of left shoe."

    Beware the 'sock eater'!

    - Birmingham, AL

    "Initially, I had a hard time getting these shoes to fit properly. They just didn't feel right. I had removed the stock insoles and replaced with pressure relief insoles. These shoes would literally pull an ankle sock right off my foot. I considered returning them, but before I did, I took a second look at the stock insoles. The insoles that come with the shoe are paper-thin. I put the stock insole back in these shoes. After giving the 1080 a second chance, the shoes were a perfect fit. No more 'sock eating', heel slippage, or poor comfort. One last thing: this version of the 1080 has an interesting feel from the heel outsole. This creates a kind of rocking motion which helps provide a more natural heel-to-toe articulation in each stride."

    Lightweight and comfortable

    - Knoxville, Tn

    "These shoes are lightweight and the have a good amount of padding to make them comfortable. The only thing I don't like is the the back of the heal does not come up high enough for my liking. But they are comfortable enough that I will get used to it. I've ran twice in them now and don't regret my purchase of these running shoes."

    Expensive but worth it if you are an active runner!

    "It is an expensive shoe and would recommend it if your are an active runner/jogger. It is always better to order a size which is 1 bigger than your usual shoe size."

    Comfy shoe that is heavy.

    MyNB members may earn NB points for writing product reviews

    "This shoes is a very comfortable shoe with great cushioning. The hardest part for me was getting used to running in these heavy shoes after running in the 1080v5's. There is a big difference in the weight. I also have flat feet so I had to order a 2E shoe that I did not have to do in the 1080V5's that fit my flat feet perfectly with a D width. The length was fine, just a 1/2 size smaller than my normal size. After you adjust to the weight you will love the comfort this shoe provides."

    Way more narrow than V5

    - DC area

    "I've worn the last 4 versions of the 1080. This is a completely different shoe. I like it so far, but long-time New Balance customers should be aware of the differences. Context: I average 10-11 miles a week (3-4 miles 3x a week). I've always (20+ yrs) worn B or narrow width, size 11-11.5 depending on the last. This shoe runs very narrow. I have the regular medium width, size 11 and it fits perfectly. I really like the low rise of the sole and the cushioning. The only complaint I have is the seam where the material covering the front of the show joins the the thicker part of the show on the outside (near the outer ball of the foot) is poorly done and creates a friction point. I've minimized this with how I wear my socks and tighten the lacing, but it could be a problem for those running greater distances or longer times."

    Good shoe but wears down fast

    "This is a great shoe but with training for marathons I felt as if the shoe broke down quick (200-250 miles). I have had other shoes last close to 400 miles before they were replaced. Also like most NB shoes they run narrow."

    "I have owned these for about 6 months now. I had completed a few 10k's and the last RunDisney event. Although this ina a great running shoe for the price, my feet were starting to ache around mile 9 in the mid sole area. I strictly use these for smaller runs."

    "My son in law ,who is into both running and fitness recommended the 880v6,which he swears by for comfort and long lasting, I tried these and after only a few months ,My 70 year old feet feel pain free! My 1080 feel like they are going to be great. also."

    not a great fit

    - Ohio

    "Its seems like the 850 foam fit more comfortable but the toe box was to tight and i got a hole were my little toe was. these are ok but I do not like the tongue was attached and not free moving so I have trouble having them loose enough to get my foot in so it wont catch my sock and make it tight around my toes."

    Back on track.

    - Milford, OH

    MyNB Bronze Member

    MyNB members may earn NB points for writing product reviews

    "New Balancer 1080's used to be my favorite running shoe, with an occasional pair of 880's if funds were low. Then an update with a narrower toe box changed all that and I moved on to other brands. Reading reviews of the newest 1080 convinced me to risk my money and give them another try. These shoes are what "smooth transition from heel strike to toe off" is all about. The fit of the EE width is perfect for me and the shoe is nothing but cushioned comfort on the road. New Balance is back on track, at least as for as the 1080 is concerned. I can't comment on durability yet, but I am hopeful that I will not be disappointed."

    Most comfortable shoes ever

    - Florida

    "Just bought a pair of these at my local running store. I had been buying size 11 in the New Balance lifestyle type shoes, but they were too small to workout in and my toes were hitting the end of the toe box. My SA had me sized up in no time and let me know the 1080s run a bit small. After settling on a 12 as the right size, I tried a number of models (Vongo, 980, even some other brands), but kept coming back to the 1080. Super lightweight, ample room in the toe box, good support and comfortable like walking on clouds. Couldn't be happier."

    Comfortable but lining wearing out

    - Atlanta, GA

    MyNB Bronze Member

    MyNB members may earn NB points for writing product reviews

    "This is my second pair of 1080's. They are very comfortable and well designed. The only problem is that the material used to connect the inside of the shoe to the outside is too thin. As a result, a rather large hole has developed for no apparent reason on the inside edge of the shoe just below my ankle. I have never had a shoe wear here before, so have to believe it is the material used. Eventually, the entire lining (inside filler coming out) will become exposed, while the rest of the shoe hardly shoes any wear. I am a little surprised in NB having a design flaw like this."

    Wish I had my old 1080s

    - Peachtree City, GA

    MyNB Bronze Member

    MyNB members may earn NB points for writing product reviews

    "The new 1080 with the new foam is a disaster. There is less support to the forefoot since you moved the shoelaces up and all we have is the mesh. Also, the heel feels like only a half heel and very unstable. Please bring back the old 1080 as an option."

    So comfortable, but...

    "From an Adidas convert, the have lost me to New Balance. This is the most impressive, comfortable shoe I have ever put on my feet. It took 2 days to break in and seemed a little clunky at first. But that ended. So I was moving with my three-time a week two mile walk and happened to flip them over and saw they were flattened on the toe-box near my pinkie toe and on my heel. Flat like a pancake in two places. I went to the NB store and talked to my friend Shay, who is amazing, by the way, and she says I am "Supernating" and I have to use the 990. But I did NOT want to leave this pair of shoes. So far I am so very happy with the 990s. Alec in Atlanta"

    Bad Blisters

    MyNB Silver Member

    MyNB members may earn NB points for writing product reviews

    "I'm a big fan of the 1080 line, having purchased the last 4 models. Unfortunately, these fresh foams are poorly engineered. There is a stitching on the inside part of medial side of the shoe which is brutal if you're running anything past 4-5 miles. I've tried everything, from using Bandaids to blister cushions and it hasn't worked. This shoe is way too expensive for this kind of frustration. Didn't anyone at New Balance try these sneakers out before putting them on the shelves??? Very disappointed"

    Jul 24, 2016

    The most recent 1080 pair i bought has given me blisters anytime i run past 4 miles or am on any kind of trail. For $150 this should not happen.

    - Boulder, CO

    "I have ALWAYS worn a 10.5 with NB running shoes. But the Fresh foam 1080 does not fit like the previous models. The sock inside makes it extremely tight around mid section of the foot and the big toe box area allows my toes to slush around - i have a blister on each foot in the exact same spot where the sock area ends. I ?have run in these shoes around 10 times but finally have to give in and not run in them - can i exchange or do i need to go to the shop i purchased"

    Jul 14, 2016

    Sock like

    - Bend OR

    "The fit is great right out of the box. Very sock like. I also really liked that the toe box is wide enough for your foot to spread a little when running. My toes got jammed up in the Zante's."

    This is my third pair!

    "This New Balance shoe (Fresh Foam 1080) is the best running shoe they have produced, in my estimation. I have purchased three pair to date."

    Great shoes

    - Texas

    "I purchased these in a New Balance store and I love them. The associate who waited on me was awesome. She used the machine to fit me properly . The 1080s are comfortable and fit very comfortably."

    Shoe is too narrow, to the point of pain

    - New York

    "Have been through several pairs of 1062s, a 1063 and a 1089v4. All shoes were very comfortable and supportive. The new1080 was very painful in the arch area from the start and has not gotten any better. I removed the insole and this has helped some but the shoe still becomes fatiguing eventually. This shoe is the first in this series I have used that has not fit comfortably. My size has not changed during this time. Not sure why this was made so narrow."

    May 11, 2016

    cushioned and responsive shoe

    Apr 30, 2016

    Sooooo comfortable

    - Apex, NC, USA

    "I recently had both of my knees replaced and was looking for the perfect new shoes for a new walking/running program. These shoes totally fit the bill. The size was true and the comfort level is superb. I finished my first post surgery 5K with no problems. I actually talked my husband ( a long time runner) into trying a pair and he also loves them. Hopefully they will still be in production when I need a new pair. AMERICAN MADE !!!!!"

    Apr 27, 2016

    Not the old 1080

    - Alexandria, VA

    "I have gone through four previous pairs of 1080s over the last ten years: a pair of the originals, two v2s and one v4. They have all been spectacularly comfortable out of the box. Sadly, this new version is not. They start to chafe severely on the inside of both feet after after about a mile, and with about 20 miles on them so far, the chafing has not become any less bad. I got the same size as all my previous pairs, and have neither gained nor lost any weight since my last pair, so the fit of the new version really is different, and, for me, much worse."

    Apr 14, 2016

    good

    "To get the maximum benefit from your run, put more in. More cushioning, more support. More comfort to cruise along for miles without stopping.

    Poor Quality

    - Manchester NH

    "When I first looked at these shoes, I could see the quality was poor. The left shoe was substantially wider that the right. After trying them on. to ensure I was not wrong, I put them back in the box and returned them. This is the first bad purchase I have made through New Balance. All other purchases have been 5 stars."

    Good fit but not very cushiony

    - Las Vegas

    "These shoes fit me well but don't feel very cushiony. I'm happy enough with them to keep and wear them but I don't think I'd recommend or buy another Fresh Foam shoe."

    Midsole Blunder

    - Norcross, GA

    "I assume with any major change in a popular show, some folks won't be happy. Sorry NB, but count me as very displeased with your excellant N2 midsole getting replaced with "Fresh Foam". While the Foam may be a bit more durable, its noticeably stiffer and much less comfortable out of the box compared to your previous version. I walked around the house for a few days with a NEW V6 on one foot and a NEW V5 on the other. There is no comparison - so if you favor these shoes, buy the V5s while you can. I've sent back the V6s as you probably guessed by now."
