Advice for Road Runners: Comfort is of the utmost importance on daily runs at easy to steady paces. Particularly when you're running longer. The New Balance Women's Fresh Foam X 1080v12 have a lot of cushioning to maximise comfort levels.
The 1080v12 cushioning feels soft and bouncy. While this is normally difficult to achieve, Fresh Foam X delivers on both fronts. This means the New Balance 1080v12 cushioning performs over a range of paces.
As the midsole has a prominent curve from heel to toe, you should enjoy smooth transitions. By transitions, we mean the time from when your foot hits the ground to take-off.
While the stand out sensation is softness, the midsole also optimises support. The medial side of the cushioning is engineered to deliver more stability throughout the gait cycle.
The New Balance Fresh Foam X 1080v12 upper fits like a second skin. That's because the material, named Hypoknit, is almost a seamless construction. In our experience, this type of upper usually feels very comfortable and reduces the chances of friction.
Flexible upper materials, such as this, also adapt well to various foot shapes.
We recommend choosing the New Balance Women's Fresh Foam X 1080v12 if you're looking for maximum comfort. The ultra cushioned midsole should feel great for slower to steady paced runs.
If you're aiming to run on consecutive days, it's likely this level of cushioning will help you achieve this.
Shoe size is a personal preference and everyone's feet are different, but we want to ensure you avoid any pain or discomfort from bruised toenails, rubbing, blistering or pins and needles.
Your running shoes should have enough width to allow you to spread your toes and should have some space at the front (we recommend having a half to one thumb's width of space from the end of your longest toe to the front of your running shoes).
This usually means that your running shoe will be at least a half size bigger than your regular shoe size though this can vary from brand to brand.
