    Great shoe, but flawed

    "I got on board with the Fresh Foam 980 last year and loved the shoe with a few exceptions in the laces and the seams on the tongue shoe. The Fresh Foam Boracay has improvements, but overall, it's still a flawed shoe. Pros: 1) the sole feels more responsive than the previous model. It's a bit more lively yet still remains heavily cushioned. 2) the upper is very breathable - helps on long runs and battling 90+ degree weather 3) laces are a big improvement over the Fresh Foam 980 Cons: 1) the seams inside are wicked. I don't have a huge foot in volume, but I can't wear these shoes without socks or with thin socks and be comfortable. They disappear at times, but are very noticeable most of the time. 2) While the upper is breathable, I actually preferred the upper in the previous model. To me, it felt like it flexed a little better and the shoe didn't quite feel as stiff after the break-in period. Overall, I would not buy the Boracay with the Zante being another similar option. The Zante is more comfortable, lighter, yet still cushioned enough for long runs. While the Boracay has a great platform, I think adjustments to the seams are needed before I would choose these over the Zante; I think the Zante is an all-around better shoe."

    GREAT SHOE VERY STABLE BUT FLEXIBLE. NONBINDING UPPER HOLDS FOOT IN PLACE BUT ENCOURAGES NORMAL ANKLE MOTION. FITS BETTER THAN A GLOVE

    "BETTER THAN EVER. ENCOURAGES FORWARD MOTION BUT COMFORTABLY HOLDS FOOT IN PLACE. THE LACE SYSTEM WITH CUTAWAYS ALLOS FOOT TO MOVE FULLY WITH NO PRESSURE ON THE TOP OF THE FOOT. tHE PREVIOUS EDITION HAD A POOR LACING SYSTEM. VERY COMFORTABLE SHOE YOU HARDLY KNOW YOU ARE WEARING IT."

    This is the epitome of a new shoe revolution.

    "I've been a fan of the New Balance Fresh Foam 980 since it first hit my store. The original Fresh Foam 980 was comfortable but there was a hint of stiffness in the foam. With the new Fresh Foam Boracay, I now realize that might have been due to an unanticipated result in manufacturing. The new Fresh Foam Boracay are an excellent addition to any runner. I run 1.5 miles every other day, but with this shoe, I intend to kick up my mileage exponentially and know that my shoes will provide the adequate shock absorption."
