New Balance 880
WHAT'S NEW? A lower achilles notch for less heel rubbing, plus more blown rubber on the forefoot outsole for a more cushioned toe-off.
WE SAY Following on from the 870, this shoe is all about reduction: of the heel counter height, the midsole height, the crash pad and the heel unit. It's been stripped down without compromising cushioning - and the result is a responsive shoe that successfully treads the line between flexibility and cushioning. Our lab showed it to be one of the most flexible and responsive shoes on test, and our wear testers agreed, with a slightly narrow fit being the only bugbear.
