New Balance Fresh Foam 1080 v9 Men’s Running Shoe
After collecting data from runners, New Balance have updated the 1080 to give it the best cushioning yet, thanks to the Fresh Foam full length midsole, which gives a more natural feel when you run. It also includes an improved, roomier toe box to help your foot move more freely and a double jacquard, engineered mesh upper that provides maximum breathability. Data grooves on the outsole deliver great flexibility with every stride. Inside the shoe the Ortholite® sockliner helps towards a great fit that feels secure on your foot.

In a Neutral shoe the midsole is made up of a high cushioned material with no extra medial (arch) support to lessen the impact that legs have to endure when running.
Neutral running shoes are for those who have, what is regarded to be, the ‘ideal’ running motion. Initial impact will always be towards the outside of the foot, whether you heel strike or land towards the forefoot. For a Neutral gait the foot then rotates inwards to help absorb shock, but stops when the foot is positioned straight from the heel up through the achilles to the lower leg. This better alignment puts no, or very little, stress on the lower leg muscles and joints resulting in less joint related injuries.
Neutral Shoes are also recommended for Under Pronators. Underpronation occurs when the foot doesn’t role inwards enough from the initial impact. Underpronators should look for higher cushioned neutral shoes to help with the lack of natural shock absorption.
