In Testing

Immediately upon wearing the 880v13, I felt secure and locked into the shoes. Despite it being a neutral trainer, it harbours stability in its core structure. During longer a test run, I felt the effects of the soft cushioning when my feet were tired and hitting the ground harder. The plush foam worked effectively in absorbing the shock from my landing, and maintained the responsiveness and bounce of my shorter runs.


The New Balance 880v13 is an excellent choice for neutral road runners seeking both cushioning and durability. Its plush and breathable structure offers superior comfort, while the secure fit and effective shock absorption make it an improved version of the 880 range. It's perfect for those who want a reliable and comfortable shoe for their daily runs.
