Introducing Fresh Foam X

Building on the launch of New Balance’s hugely successful Fresh Foam, the Boston-based brand have launched a further upgrade with Fresh Foam X, offering even better performance and comfort in a wide range of shoe choices. Using data collected from thousands of runners, New Balance have developed a lightweight cushioning system that cushions just in the right spot.

Fresh Foam X shoe models

The Fresh Foam X collection is built smartly, to cover every trail, every step, every kilometre with these six models:

> New Balance 880v10 – Road performance
> New Balance 1080v10 – Premier cushioned road
> New Balance Tempo – Response on the road
> New Balance More v2 – Softest underfoot feel
> New Balance Hierro v5 – Trail
> New Balance 850at – All terrain

Meet the first in the collection: the New Balance 880V10

Fresh Foam X meets the longtime favourite of New Balance fans, the 880. A soft carrier of Fresh Foam X brings a premier cushioning platform into a premier technical cushion shoe. In a nutshell, data-driven geometries and crucial forefoot flexibility have resulted in a supported shoe built for the long run.

Key features include:

> Hypoknit Upper: Engineered flat knit with strategically placed lockout threads through the quarter to tighten down the upper for a secure midfoot fit.

> Highest Profile: A 10mm drop from heel to toe is higher than the 1080v10 – 8mm drop, and the Tempo – 6mm drop, but well suited to the data-driven geometry of the 880.

> Expanded Blown Rubber: Extended coverage underfoot results in a smooth heel-to-toe ride

> Heel Counter Support: Molded external heel counter helps control heel movement

> Responsive Midsole Topbed: Layering on a responsive and reoriented forefoot foam completes the TruFuse formula so popular in the 800 Series. The results are a measurably soft and more responsive ride than the 880v9
