The Fresh Foam 980 provides a revolutionary approach to neutral running by combining ultra-plush cushioning with a reduced drop from heel to forefoot, and offering a super soft, bouncy ride that protects runners without sacrificing speed.
Stability and Cushioning
By combining the intelligence and experience of a human designer with cutting edge computer software, New Balance is able to manipulate the midsole on the Fresh Foam 980 to give runners plush cushioning properties and inherent stability in a more minimal package.
For an excellent heel to toe transition, a blown rubber outsole offers durability and flexibility in a 4mm natural drop while providing both a light and stable ride.
Breathable, Lightweight Construction
Weighing 249g for a men’s size 9 ½ and 206g for a women’s size 7, the Fresh Foam 980 is grounded in bright colours and vivid accents, and offers runners a naturally cushioned yet light neutral running shoe that can also walk a runway.
The Fresh Foam 980 has a lightweight, breathable construction paired with a simple, plush upper to keep your feet comfortable and protected. A unique spray paint finish and fresh, eye-catching design provide a lower to the ground running shoe ideal for any workout or wardrobe.
