New Balance Fresh Foam 980

Most recently making headlines in the running space is New Balance’s Fresh Foam technology. An innovative approach in the super-plush category, the midsole is comprised of a single piece of lightweight foam that provides both cushioning and stability. A more maximal approach, New Balance utilized cutting-edge 3D printing technology to create a cushioning system that supports the natural geometries of the foot, all while providing soft and stable crash pads in the places you need them most. With a 4mm heel-to-toe drop and a simple breathable wrap mesh with no-sew overlays, your foot will be one with the shoe. These feel great the second you get them laced up, but more importantly, they remain soft and responsive over many miles.
