New Balance Fresh Foam X 880v14 Running Shoes (2E Width)
Whatever your preferred running routine looks like, there’s no shoe that handles it quite like the 880. The Fresh Foam X 880v14 is an evolution in everyday reliability, featuring superior underfoot cushioning and a structured, supportive upper.
Engineered Mesh Upper
The 880v14s are the perfect addition to your running wardrobe, due to their lightweight, stylish design, and a lot of this can be thanks to the engineered mesh upper utilised. The upper is not only lightweight, but the soft mesh also provides excellent levels of breathability to prevent overheating and allow a constant supply of airflow to travel around your feet during intense sessions. The materials have a seamless construction to minimise the risks of rubbing or blisters, keeping you focused on your performance. Finally, the shoes have a traditional lace-up system to allow you to get the best possible fit, whilst ensuring feet are locked-in and secure.
Fresh Foam X Upper
The 14th edition of the 880s utilises New Balance’s Fresh Foam X cushioning. This new version of Fresh Foam X is a one-piece midsole compound that’s even softer, even more responsive and much more comfortable. Fresh Foam X provides you with an excellent level of energetic rebound, giving plush underfoot comfort, and protecting you from injuries during high-impact elements of your race. The full-length Fresh Foam keeps the cushioning consistent and improves the transition in the gait cycle. This midsole uses approximately 3% bio-based content to offer a smaller carbon footprint whilst still providing incredible comfort.
NDurance Rubber Outsole
Providing you grip and traction on your run, the Fresh Foam X 880v14s have an NDurance rubber outsole. The compound provides you with durability and support in areas that are normally high-wearing, therefore enhancing the longevity and reliability of the shoes. The rubber will form a solid bond of friction with varying surfaces, therefore reducing the risks of slipping, and keeping you stable through the duration of your run. Adorning the outsoles are vertical flex grooves to further allow for grip and traction, whilst allowing smoother transitions, allowing you to pick up the pace
