Pros

  • Without increasing overall weight, the Fresh Foam X midsole provides more cushioning for energy return
  • Great for everyday running and suitable for long race days, as well as recovery runs
  • A smooth heel-to-toe transition, encouraging natural running style
  • Good for stable neutral runners
  • Product of Green Leaf Standard – we love an ecologically-conscious approach!

Cons

  • Cushioning may be too soft for some runners who prefer a firmer landing

In Testing

I've tried the New Balance 880v13 which was great for short easy runs, but I wanted to try something with more cushioning, so I tested out the 1080v13.

When running and even walking, the 1080v13 felt comfortable, lightweight, and bouncy. It fits my foot like a glove and barely feels like I am wearing a shoe! I could wear them for a long time, and they will still feel great on my feet.


Verdict

In conclusion, the Fresh Foam X 1080v13 is a great everyday neutral road running shoe. It is perfect for long walks and runs, providing a lightweight, natural, soft, and bouncy feel whilst remaining quite stable on those longer runs. New Balance has truly captured a great balance between comfort and performance with these shoes.
