What is Fresh Foam?

Fresh Foam represents a revolutionary advancement in the material that cushions the high impact foot strikes that occur on roads, tracks, courts, and fields everywhere. Informed by 3D motion captured pressure mapping and force application data gathered from real athletes, Fresh Foam is softness quantified.

“We see the 1080 as our absolute best ride on the road, and the signature running experience in our Fresh Foam X platform. When updating the 1080 we always are gut checking ourselves to be sure we are providing an incredibly cushioned and smooth experience that lives up to that reputation. This doesn’t stop with the underfoot experience though. A beautifully designed Hypoknit upper provides breathability, stretch, and structure in all the right places.” - Paul Zielinski Senior Product Manager

"880v12 was an incredible opportunity to bring ultimate cushion and comfort to reimagine our workhorse daily trainer. This is the 12th version of the 880 and our best version yet! We delivered a layer of Fresh Foam X closer to the foot for a better step in and softness at impact and paired it with an energetic foam at the forefoot for toe off. An engineered mesh provides a soft and breathable fit that just melts around the foot.” - Paul Zielinski, Product Manager
