The Women's 1080v5 Running Shoe is New Balance's most cushioned ride for high mileage runners. Its Abzorb midsole attenuates shock with thick foam for comfort whether you're on mile one or ten. The shoe includes a nitrogen infused heel for a lower midsole height without compromising all that cush, and N2 Burst allows forefoot flexibility for a great spring and a consistent neutral feel. The 1080v5's T Beam lightweight shank and asymmetrical heel counter offer a touch of stability for a smoother heel to toe transition. New Balance attached all these comfortable features to an equally comfortable air mesh upper for a cool run. At the bottom, blown rubber keeps its traction over sidewalks, cobblestones, and rainy asphalt.
