Born of science, the Fresh Foam 980 Trail is unlike anything you’ve ever stepped into. Developed using specialized design software, this men’s trail running shoe features a full-ground-contact outsole that grips uphill and downhill for great traction. And while you’re on the move, the gusseted tongue helps keep trail debris from getting into your shoes. For a secure fit, the breathable mesh upper features simple no-sew overlays that wrap your foot in all the right places. The New Balance Fresh Foam 980 Trail: incredibly soft yet stable…even on tough terrain.

    The almost perfect trail shoe with one fatal flaw.

    "Almost everything about this shoe is excellent. The first trail shoe in 20 years I could say that about. Then the "almost" part. The fine mesh in the top of the toe box wears out between the rubberized panels. Less than 100 miles and I have holes in the top. the rubberized panel cause friction between them and "cut" the mesh. New Balance, find a way to correct that and you have an awesome shoe! Dave"

    "I only ware NB and was really excited that NB designed a cushioning shoe that had a low mm drop. I am a larger guy and typically use minimal shoes for workouts but am concerned about injury with them on runs longer then 1 mile...I hoped this shoe would open doors. I found however The shoes is tight and uncomfortable. It makes my our foot fall asleep and I wish I could return them for the 1010v2 trail."
