Comparison Review: 2021 New Balance Fresh Foam 1080 v11 vs Fresh Foam 880 v11

 Article by Sam Winebaum

In the video I compare the Fresh Foam 1080 v11 to its predecessor (in an A/B test) and to Fresh Foam 880 v11 (also compared to its predecessor).  

The 1080 is has a rocker based geometry with 4mm more forefoot cushion and 2mm more heel cushion than the 880 and weighs just a bit less at  9.55 oz / 271g vs 9.7 oz for the 880. Both have Fresh Foam X midsoles. The 880 has a more flexible geometry and 2mm more drop at 10mm than the 1080. Both are performance neutral trainers in the New Balance line.

The 1080 v11 ($150) releases February 2021.  The 880v11 ($130) releases March 2021
