New Balance Men's 880 Shoes
About this deal
We try extremely hard at RTR to go beyond often cursory marketing oriented spec sheets from brands and here we could feel the differences so asked. v=1672679436","variant_ids":[43584631701732,43584631734500,43584631767268,43584631800036,43584631832804,43584631865572,43584631898340]},"available":false,"name":"New Balance Fresh Foam 880v12 (Women's) - Bright Lapis with light aluminum - 6. However, some found the foam lacked pop on faster runs and felt like they were struggling to keep up. The amount of softness an individual prefers will vary from person to person and even the feeling of “softness” can be different between people.
Our testers thought the 880 was plenty protective for their daily miles while still offering some ground feel. These shoes have the best rebound of all the On running shoes thanks to the added CloudTec midsole and the springy Speedboard. Thanks to the more traditional features offered in the 880 v12, it makes it a great shoe for beginner runners as it offers a smooth and responsive ride without being over the top. Therefore, it has had its loyal runners since the beginning, looking for a simple, versatile, and comfortable shoe for their daily outings.Designed as a cushioned yet responsive feeling road running shoe, the 880v12 is a great option for those looking for a more traditional heel to forefoot drop but a more nimble shoe for their everyday road running sessions. Mac: I am including this unfair comparison for the simple fact that the 880 is trying to achieve something similar to what the Speed offers, just with less exotic materials. The top-bed foam and Fresh Foam X underfoot construction displaces heel impact and offers a responsive approach to cushioning.
The Fresh Foam X 880v12 is still fitted with the New Balance signature plush, but firm and responsive cushioning. When I headed out for a run without any purpose in the last few weeks, I often found myself reaching for the 880v12. The upper was no longer a snug performance fit and was for me loose and not that secure and the underfoot feel was soft and almost too mushy for me. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.
The upper design creates a second-skin feel which adapts to your feet, moving with you in all directions. I have been fighting some AT for nearly 2 years now, and I just haven’t been able to put in much mileage lately.
