    "I absolutely love these! I am in nursing school and work long hours at clinical and these are like walking on clouds. I ordered the wides and they fit great. I am actually considering ordering another pair for everyday wear."

    "I love the wide toe box of the 1080! LOVE it!! The 8mm heel drop is perfect for me and the cushion is just right. I've worn this model in 2 marathons and no blisters or feet pain. Good job!"

    "Ok, this shoe has GREAT cushioning, and I say that as an almost 50 year old woman that needs it. I do however, wear an orthotic AND a lift in one shoe. Because of this, the depth of the heel on that side is not deep enough and the heel tends to slip, even with special lacing. So, I would definitely recommend these shoes for the comfort, but if you have an orthotic, evaluate that aspect. As for me, i could not make it work-but I LOVE these for walking and standing around, which I have to do a lot in my job as a Fitness Pro. Great shoe!"

    The best NB shoe for the money I've ever had!

    "Width is wider than all other NB's Ive got, which I really need, especially in the heel width. When I wear these for yard work the sole doesn't collect mud and is easy to wipe off to wear indoors again. I've purchased 3 pair … that's how much I like and wear these!"

    "As if the color choices weren't great enough, the comfort alone almost makes me want to purchase a second pair! I'm 23 years old and have been running for years. After enduring a couple stress fractures from being a little over-zealous, these shoes are a great way for an under-pronator like myself to ease back into distance running. Great support while feeling like running on a cloud."

    "These are very comfy. Not as much stability as with the 880s but this is a very comfortable running shoe. I use mine all the time. They get rotated out with my 880s. New Balance is great at shoes!!!"

    I've worn the 1080 since v2 and I hate this version

    - Brooklyn, NY

    MyNB Bronze Member

    MyNB members may earn NB points for writing product reviews

    "I've been running for over 10 years and have worn New Balance 1080 for a good chunk of that time (at least since 2008), size 8.5, medium width. This has not changed in years. I got the exact same size in the v6 and I really, really hate them. They have done nothing but give me blisters on my bunions. The harder plastic on the sides of the shoes go up just a little too far, and it feels like the shoe has narrowed a lot. I still have my v5 for long runs. The v5 are perfect - please please please redesign the Fresh Foam to be more like the v5."

    Great shoe

    - los angeles

    "I love this running shoe, however, New Balance sizing is WILDLY inconsistent. I have this shoe in two colors ( light blue & coral ), and both fit me perfectly. I was so excited to see the new pink & gray model that I ordered it even though the pairs I have are not yet worn out. This pair ( in the same size as the other two, 7 D ) is HUGE on me, I mean, almost a full size bigger. WIGO, New Balance? I definitely recommend this shoe, just try it on in a store to avoid disappointment."

    I am a walker, not a runner

    - Paradise, CA

    "Like walking on kidding. I weigh 180 and am 63 years old. I walk 3 miles every day, on sidewalks and roads. I need cushion, and room for my toes to spread. I can't think of a single improvement I would make to these shoes. Bought 3 pairs of this model and will likely buy more near model year end when price comes down a bit....if there are any left. This is a superior shoe."

    Jul 20, 2016

    Comfortable and handsome shoe, large footbed

    - San Francisco

    "For starters, I'm a size 16D. This shoe provides a lot of comfort, yet they're light and breathable. the footbed seems a bit larger than my other New Balance running shoes (990, 993 & Zante v2). I only wish they were made or at least assembled in the USA. Overall, this shoe is quickly becoming my favorite offering from New Balance."

    Jul 18, 2016

    My favorite long distance shoe

    - Amarillo, TX

    "Super plush! So comfortable for the long haul. Keeps my feet fresh with ventilation. The wide toebox allows my toes to spread out and not get any blisters. The cushion lets me run 26.2 miles without any pain or feet trouble! Best shoe ever."

    Jul 17, 2016

    Love love love. Comfortable. Lightweight. Great combo.

    - Boston, MA

    "LOVE the Fresh Foam 1080. Amazingly comfortable - a great combo of serious cushioning yet really lightweight. Lots of room around the forefoot but seems to wrap the foot really securely."

    Jul 8, 2016

    great comfort and flexibility

    - Duanesburg, NY

    "I have taken Zumba for years and tried many shoes- this is by far the most comfortable shoe I have worn- like dancing on a pillow!"

    Jul 7, 2016

    Love this shoe!

    - Georgia, USA

    "It took me forever to find this shoe, in store and online always out of stock. Finally found them online, ordered them, had them in 3 days. I love the color, fit and the extra think cushioning in the heel. They fit really well, but they do seem to run a little narrow across the top of the foot. I had to go down a whole size, but needed wide width, so make sure you try them on before purchasing them. Again, I love the color and comfort of the shoe. Would buy again, hope they keep them coming in different colors."

    Love the New Balance

    - Spartanburg, SC

    "I have worn New Balance for 30 years. The only ones that I can wear."

    Jun 26, 2016

    Great to look at and extremely comfortable!

    - Los Angeles CA

    "Everyone has commented at how stylish these shoes are! But what is important is how comfortable and lightweight it feels specially when I am at work for 12 hours."

    Jun 22, 2016

    Why mess with a perfect shoe?

    - San Antonio, TX

    "I have always loved the 1080s because of their comfort and wide toe box. This new version is tight in the middle to the point where it literally hurt my arches. It felt like I was running on a plastic arch. The fresh foam forced me to adjust my running which I didn't like. I just don't understand why they had to change a shoe that was perfect. This was my favorite shoe because of the large toe box and now I have to find a new shoe."

    wide sole looks clownish in wide

    - san antonio, tx

    "I've worn 1260 wide for the last 5 versions, this one has been adjusted unforntunately. I've tried every size combo and the wide looks like clown shoes. I love the blue it's so pretty, and have loved the model. Very bummed to have to start from scratch and find a new shoe."

    Jun 12, 2016

    A Winner!

    - Chicago

    "Let me start by saying I'm very picky about my athletic shoes. 3 surgeries on my right foot, it needs a lot of support. These shoes are my favorites! I wish they had them in width 2E when I purchased, although the wide fit works for me. Same great wide toe box, but these shoes stand out with their cushioning! Oh my, have never had a pair with so much cushion. I will get another pair, no doubt!"

    Jun 7, 2016

    Great shoe!

    - Tamarac, FL, USA

    "I'm 11AA and these shoes were the best. Size always being a problem, these fit right out of the box. Only sorry that they don't offer more colors in my size. I would have bought a wardrobe of them."

    May 31, 2016

    Awesome if on your feet all day!

    - New Jersey

    "Runs a bit wide but good for toe wiggle room. I'm on my feet over 11 hours a day on tile surface in Healthcare. These sneakers are soft and buoyant making the hours fly by. I used to speed walk but sneakers held me back. Now I have hope i can enjoy my "relaxation" without pain!"

    May 29, 2016

    So comfortable !

    - Baltimore ,MD

    "I purchased the 1080 for walking. I have walked two days in a row with these shoes. I didn' t need to take them off the minute I walked in the door. So comfortable they made the walk so much more enjoyable that my feet didn't hurt. Wish they came in black so could wear them to work! Love them!!!"

    May 16, 2016

    Never had new balance - won as prize. I will never use another sneaker - LOVE THEM!

    - Killington, VT 05751, USA

    "Love the arch support - spending extra time running because I love these sneakers!"

    Very different fit from 1080v. Not comfortable.

    - Madison, WI, USA

    "Not a good shoe. Have bought many new balance shoes, these are not designed well."

    May 10, 2016


    - Chico, CA, USA

    "I have Mortons Neuroma , plus callouses very bad, My feet hurt all the time, these shoes are WONDERFUL, the cushion is great, I have worn these for my walks, (part run) 12 mi, and I have no problem!!! (and I don't have to soak my feet when I get home)they feel like I am walking on great foam, and they are. I needed the larger toe boxing, that these do have, If you have feet that just hurt? these are great.."

    - Charlottesville, VA, USA

    Tru to 1080

    - Wisconsin

    "I purchased these early this spring for 1/2 marathon training. For the last two years I have been running through 4 pairs of 1080 v4's because I loved them. I like this new version but a little less. They are different. The fit feels comfortable to size and I like the tread better. Cushioning is great for long runs. But i feel there is a little less support for the inner part of the heel ( I know these are a neutral shoe, but so were the v4's) and on both feet i have gotten large blisters at the start of my arch, just behind the ball coming from a seem. Because i like most eveything else about the shoe I have continued to run in them but likely wont get another pair until the next design change."

    Apr 23, 2016

    Love these shoes

    - Florida

    "Loved these the minute I put them on. Toe box is wide so if you have wide feet you will be pleased with these. I have had other NB shoes in D wide width and these are so much better..they actually are wide!!!! They are comfortable and cushioned and feel great when in use. There is room in the toe box so your feet can breath and be comfortable...I have used other fresh foam shoes but these are so much better with the extra cushioning. They felt like they were broken in the first wear. Great design Great colors too. Nice light weight If you have wide feet, these are the shoes for you"

    Apr 16, 2016

    Overall Great Running Shoe

    - United States

    "The 1080's are fantastic! After three runs, the shoes broke in and felt incredible. My old shoes had a lot of miles logged on them, and my knees and shins were beginning to bother me. Since I started running in these however, my legs feel great! The ride is so smooth and comfortable. The shoes have support, but are still flexible. The toe box is a tad wide, but I quickly got used to it and now enjoy the extra breathing room. I have worn many other New Balance sneakers, mainly the 890v4 and 890v5s, and loved them, but these are my favorite!"

    Fresh Foam 1080

    "loved the look but gave me BAD blisters, 1st wear."

    Apr 2, 2016

    Love my Fresh Foam 1080

    - Highland Falls, NY

    "This was the first time I was fitted for a running sneaker. I am so pleased with the 1080. I feel like I am running on a treadmill even outside! I did use an insert and the added support is amazing. Added bonus is the colors, love them all."

    Mar 31, 2016

    These are the most comfortable shoes I've ever had!

    Excellent Neutral Shoe!

    - Richmond, KY, USA

    "New Balance has struck gold with this supremely cushioned neutral runner. Great comfort whether on my feet at work or exercising after work. Colors are good too!"

    Mar 22, 2016

    Excellent shoe. All time great!

    - Annapolis, MD, USA

    "Description says it all. Will go down as an all time great shoe for users. New balance got it right. Simply put. 1080 was a great shoe and introducing fresh foam into it made a lot of folks nervous that it would be vastly different, but it is an unbelievable blend. Right out of the box the shoe is ready to go. Extremely light for how much cushion there is, and it gives back a little bit when you need to run faster. Great everyday trainer that covers a range of speeds and abilities."

    Mar 18, 2016

    Beautiful fresh foams

    - Wellington, FL, USA

    "Great color and style. I've been wearing fresh foams since they appeared. However, I noticed that the tongue of the shoe, both the men's and women's, was irritating my lower shin just above the ankle. I've been wearing NBs almost exclusively for 4+ years as my everyday shoes. [Bad knees: now good after TKR shurgery.] And there was a slight indentation where the tongue hit the leg. And voila, I realized it was the exact imprint of the tongue. I thought I'd take a chance on this pair, but the high tongue was still not good for all the walking I do. These will go back. Sorry."

    NB tennis shoes

    - Tulsa, OK, USA

    "The shoes were extremely uncomfortable. I felt unstable walking in the shoes. The store wouldn't refund my online purchase, I had to purchase another pair. I won't be shopping at New Balance again!"

    Mar 10, 2016

    This shoe feels great!

    - Central Illinois

    "I wear my New Balance shoes to the Y and they are great for walking. Light and comfortable, I feel like I could walk all day. Also wear them if I am headed to the mall for a long day of shopping. Very comfortable!"

    New Balance comfort

    - NJ

    "I love Fresh Foam. They are comfortable and look great. Keep in mind that they are made for running. If your intent is too train in them, then do not use them as a casual shoe and vice versa. This can be said about all New Balance and you will get the best out of them."

    Feb 25, 2016


    - San Antonio, TX

    "I am a huge Nike product advocate, but couldn't find a shoe that fit my needs for long distance comfort. A coworker referred me to New Balance, stating they did in-store fittings. I was fit for this shoe, in a wide, and would never look back. I'm not saying that I wont use my Nike's for shorter runs but for longer distance runs this is my go to shoe. Very comfortable, toe box is roomy, and the arch support is amazing. I did get inserts for my high arch and it made the shoe feel even better. Thank you New Balance for making a shoe that fits my wide and long feet perfectly!!"

    Feb 22, 2016

    First time New Balance user

    - Tiffin, OH 44883, USA

    "My first New Balance Running shoe has been successful so far! I have had these shoes for about a month.I usually have trouble getting shoes that feel good on my feet. These felt great out of the box, and I was super comfortable in them by my second run!! Very cushioned with good support. The toe box is not very tall, but is nice and wide. With the super soft fabric on the top of the toe box, the lack of height is not even noticed. Ill keep buying these shoes for running!!"

    Feb 17, 2016

    Fell in love at first sight but...

    - Birmingham,Alabama

    "Fell in love with this shoe tried it on and loved! But after a couple weeks just the front fit of the shoe I hate. They feel loose in front and cant really run in them. Wish I could get a smaller size but it is what it is!Just went bought another brand running shoe that fits a little better!! Still like New balance just didnt like these!"

    Feb 13, 2016

    Comfortable and lightweight. Good fit.

    Holes within 3 months

    - kalamazoo, mi

    "I loved these shoes. Super comfortable and looked great. However, a hole began forming in the top of both shoes very early on. Within 3 months, the holes were completely through, and large, which is completely unacceptable. Steer clear unless you plan on replacing frequently."

    Jan 25, 2016

    Great support

    - Denver, CO, USA

    "I've had trouble with shoes fitting my feet for years. This products fits well and has great support. I will be a repeat customer for sure."

    Jan 24, 2016


    - Miami, FL, USA

    "Incredibly cushioned. I have severe pronation, and moderate flat foot, and running with these shoes has been incredible. I feel like floating on air and flying"

    Jan 21, 2016


    - Nyc

    "Nice and lightweight, but not made for low sensitive arches, the arch support is high and hard. The toe box is shallow so if you don't want your toes rubbing against the top these also are not for you. Too bad they wer really cute on"

    Jan 19, 2016

    spring in step, enough support for my bad ankles and knees

    - zurich

    "Love them. They are light, but provide spring and enough support for my bad ankles and knees."

    Jan 17, 2016

    This is a comfortable, lightweight shoe and the design seems to make them a little more blanced when I walk.

    - Florida

    "It is a comfortable, lightweight shoe and seems to have a little more balance than my previous pair of New Balances."

    Jan 7, 2016

    Excellent cushioning, couldn't ask for better from NB!

    - Wausau, WI, USA

    "I was hesitant to try the newest Foam, never having had a pair of NB. I was not disappointed! I couldn't have asked for a better neutral cushioned shoe! Comfort and cushioning with moderate support is what I look for and this shoe did not disappoint. Very excited to call this shoe my fav!"

    Dec 21, 2015

    Best NB shoe yet!

    - Haines City FL

    "For the past couple years I haven't been as pleased with NB shoes as I used to be because I've started running as well as walking. The fit has varied and I couldn't find running shoes that were "just right". No longer! The first time I put on these shoes I ran 5 miles and hardly knew they were there, yet alone new. I immediately ordered another pair."
