New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v10 Initial Run Video Review with 6 Comparisons!

Article by Sam Winebaum

New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v10 ($150)

Update: Read our full multi tester review HERE

The New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v10 ($150) launches November 2019. It drops about 0.5 oz in weight coming in at about 9.5 oz / 269g (US size 9).  It has an 8mm offset

It features a new engineered knit upper with trace fiber stitching and a bootie for support.

The knit stretches over the toes and a it has better heel hold for me while using the same last as the v9, so the fit is similar but more refined.

The outsole is redesigned with the shoe more flexible and easier to transition.

Initial Review and Shoe Details
In the video below I share my first run impressions and detail the features of the v10

In the Part II video below I compare 1080v10 to v9 and to 6 other shoes in its class including: NB FuelCell Propel, ASICS Glideride, Skechers Ride 8 Hyper, Nike Pegasus, Brooks Launch, and Salomon Sonic 3 Balance.

Hi NewfDaddy,
Seriously if you liked v9 you should like v10 even better. The heel slip is gone for me, the toe box is now stretchier and more comfortable over the toes and the fit and yes I personally called it a more performance than plush comfort fit is all around improved with the same volume as far as I can tell. The increased flexibility and it seems more rocker is a big plus for me as I thought while improved v9 was still quite stiff and front ponderous. Beacon and Rincon while cheaper and lighter as you say, more "fun" to run but less shoe all around.

I know both shoes are very new, but how does the v10 compare with the triumph 17?

Sam Winebaum said...

Hi Anonymous, no problem 1080v10 is firmer and more responsive and I think it transitions slightly better to toe off. Triumph 17 is softer bouncier and 1 oz heavier so really in a different weight class As a daily trainer T17 a bit to soft for me, 1080v10 a touch to firm for me. Our full multi tester review coming soon with more perspectives and more comparisons.

What about the skechers gorun ride 8 how do they compare triumph 17, 1080 v10, is that somewhere in the middle between soft/firm ?

Skechers official site listed GRR8 as 8.7 oz now. I remember it used to be 9.3OZ. Is that an update due to production vs. earlier prototype difference?

As far as we know no changes as of yet. Guessing web site has a weight without sock liner? They can be run without
