The New Balance Fresh Foam 980 releases tomorrow, 2/12! This lastest shoe from New Balance is revolutionary its design. The technical description from the New Balance website entails, “Feel the science of soft with Fresh Foam, a performance midsole with hexagonal geometries that delivers plush cushioning without sacrificing a lower, more natural underfoot feel. Developed using specialized design software, this lightweight men’s running shoe also features a no-sew breathable upper and a full-ground-contact, blown rubber outsole that complements the shoe’s cushioning. The New Balance Fresh Foam 980: incredibly soft, incredibly stable.” To summarize, its a 4mm drop shoe with full/constant ground contact, exceptional cushioning (our store manager Pat was given an early pair and he loves them) and increased durability over most minimal shoes. Also, the cushioning system is so light and springy, it is very comparable to a Hoka with a great cool look! Here is a sneak peak video of the shoe!
