New Balance used 3D mapping technology and collected data from many runners to improve the shape and feel of the heel counter on 1080 version 10. From this 3D mapping data the UltraHeel has been developed to offer you perfect comfort and security while you run.
The cushioning in the midsole of 1080 version 10 has also been improved. This time, New Balance used an ultra-soft and smooth material so the new FreshFoam cushioning in the midsole is now lighter and softer, with more energy return properties to provide you with a super soft, luxurious ride regardless your pace.
In addition, Hypoknit, the new lightweight engineered knit upper with zonal function and without any excess seams or layers is featured in 1080. The HypoKnit upper is flexible, adapts to your foot with every step you make but also provides stability and breathability.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE FOR RUNNING SHOES
Your running shoe size will generally be 1 to 1.5 sizes bigger than your regular (‘dress’) shoe size. Bear in mind also that one foot can be slightly bigger than the other.
First, kick your foot back into the heel of each shoe before checking how much space is left at the front. When standing in each shoe with your full weight on the foot, it’s best to have between half and a full thumb's width between the end of the longest toe and the end of the shoe.
When standing in the shoe, it’s best to have a little wiggle room for the toes, but the back of heel should still feel nicely secure.
Sprint spikes are best when a close fit. Distance spikes best when up to a half a thumb's width between the end of the longest toe and the end of the shoe.
