New Balance W1080v8 Women’s Running Shoes (D Width)
The eighth iteration of the Fresh Foam 1080 for women uses data-driven input to deliver premium underfoot support. This model improves upon its predecessors with newly reconfigured flex grooves on the blown rubber outsole. A breathable engineered mesh upper with a moulded foam collar and a no-sew bootie fit offers an extra snug-feel, and NB’s signature Fresh Foam midsole technology provides advanced cushioning mile after mile.
Engineered Mesh Upper
Engineered mesh uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort; perforations in the fabric increase airflow to create a better healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. Used throughout the entire shoe, the mesh allows for custom structure and stretch, adapting to the changing shape of your foot as it moves through the gait cycle. The no-sew bootie construction wraps you in a seamless, sock-like fit, reducing the risk of rubbing and blisters (because we know how those can ruin your day), while a soft midfoot cage swathes the arch in medial and lateral support, helping to control pronation and diminish the risk of injury. An external TPU counter surrounds the heel in improved stability and promotes lockdown, anchoring your foot to the midsole and reducing in-shoe slippage so that you can enjoy smooth, distraction-free strides. The shoe’s roomy toe box encourages natural movement and comfortable toe splay, whilst a moulded foam collar provides lasting ankle support and reduced pressure on the Achilles.
Fresh Foam Midsole
An Ortholite sockliner lies atop a lightweight midsole to cradle the foot in moisture-wicking ease, preventing the development of that distracting clammy feeling to keep your feet happy on longer distance days. An integrated antimicrobial function means the sockliner fights the growth of nasty odour-causing bacteria, giving you and your gear that fresher-for-longer feel. A soft but stable Fresh Foam platform resides underfoot to supply durable and luxurious cushioning. Sparing your joints as you sprint down onto hard, unforgiving concrete, Fresh Foam encourages a smooth heel-toe-transition and reduces the use of superfluous muscle power; this diminishes fatigue, keeping you motivated for longer.
Blown Rubber Outsole
A blown rubber outsole completes this New Balance shoe, providing an extra layer of cushioning and bounce. Anatomical flex grooves, driven by data collected from real runners, contribute towards the smooth and flexible fit of the 1080v8, allowing the foot to bend naturally and move freely, mile after mile. The groove placement and hexagon morphing, a result of science meeting art, produces responsiveness at impact zones. This zoned outsole showcases a pressure mapping example, the result of data and force plate studies, and its refined traction pattern provides grip on wet and dry roads. Choose the 1080v8, for a plush underfoot feel and zero excuses.
