About this deal

I have attempted to crank down tighter on the laces for a more secure fit, but let’s just say this shoe runs wide. The upper has also been reworked: it's now made of an engineered mesh with no-sew overlays to increase airflow and reduce chafing.

Peter: I’ve been told for years that I might like the 880, but have always gravitated to other shoes in the NB stable. Weighing about the same with a somewhat higher stack height of 34 heel / 26 mm forefoot you get 4mm more forefoot stack height and thus more front cushion in the 1080.

Sam: The midsole is made up of 2 foams both of the same hardness but of different densities and compounds. This twelfth edition presents changes that not only affect its midsole, but also its upper and outsole. For racing flats we ensure that we have completed intervals, a tempo or steady state run run as well as a warm up and cool down in each pair prior to review.

My advice here is to get both: the 880 is a nice Recovery Day complement to the faster Speed, and the ride of the former is at least an echo of the latter. This wasn’t too much of an issue at an easier pace but led to some sloppiness when running faster or down hill.If you're looking for an everyday training shoe, even for your occasional running outings, this model is one of the safest options you can choose. So this shoe will win you over if you’re looking for a traditional road shoe with a softer and fairly bouncy ride for daily training. Sam: One of the last of the classic high drop trainers with a thinner more flexible forefoot, the 880, after some over mellowing in v12, leans back towards its predecessors with a snappier ride, a nice forgiving combination of foams, a firmer outsole and a more secure upper.

This friendlier edition should prove more versatile for a wider range of runner types especially those seeking a bouncier softer feel in a daily trainer.This was not a factor when running in the shoe, but when lacing up, I didn't feel confident that the tongue wouldn't tear or slide down when running. Version 12 retains the same 10 mm drop with a dual-density midsole with a new softer Fresh Foam, and added upfront FuelCell which is a slightly more dense upgrade giving a bit more energy through toe off.

Overall, the New Balance Fresh Foam X 880v12 is a daily workhorse shoe reserved for daily mileage but is able to pick up the pace during a mild tempo run.The midsole is also able to follow the natural bending on the foot, allowing the feet to move comfortably in a range of directions. v=1672679436"}},"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]},{"id":43584631865572,"title":"7. Enhanced softness – A new dual layer midsole featuring top-bed foam cushioning and underfoot Fresh Foam X makes for a soft step in and heel strike.
