Description

It does offer mild stability through the heel thanks to the firm counter and heel flair, but this is a shoe best left for those individuals without major stability needs. Sam: The 880 is a safer all around bet with now a touch of the energetic fun of the Rebel on a more stable platform than Rebel given the geometry, Fresh Foam rear and copious rubber. They are not the bounciest or most dynamic feeling shoes in my quiver, but the ride is very enjoyable.

But, just by looking at the numbering of their versions, the 880s are just as long-lived as the 1080s.It got a wider platform and a combination of Fresh Foam for the main midsole and FuelCell as a front lower layer. With v12 the 880 gets a big underfoot upgrade with a softer main Fresh Foam midsole and a front slightly denser FuelCell insert on what appears to be a wider rear platform. Almost all New Balance shoes run very true to size for me in a Women’s 8, but this 880 v12 (and possibly the Rebel 2) might serve me better in a half size up; I don’t know if the shoe is actually a bit short, or if my foot is so loose that it is sliding around and hitting the front of the toe box while running. The latest evolution of Fresh Foam X foam is present both in the heel area and in the forefoot for shock absorption and softness during landing phases.

Is it a steady performer for regular day in day out running and walking that should last a long time?The top-bed foam and Fresh Foam X underfoot construction displaces heel impact and offers a responsive approach to cushioning. As well as delivering exceptional comfort, the upper also actively and efficiently wicks away the build-up of excess sweat and moisture to leave you feeling cool, dry and comfortable as you strive for the best results and performance. The cushioning system of the Fresh Foam X 880v12 works well, and I enjoyed the flexibility it had to offer: I could go at whatever speed I wanted, and the shoes were there to support me. Before beginning any running program, it is a good idea to participate in a strength or walking program as you prepare your muscles for the high muscular demand necessary while running. New runners should look for shoes that are comfortable in the heel and forefoot, provide adequate stability to the foot, and have a secure but not too tight upper.

Thanks to the more traditional features offered in the 880 v12, it makes it a great shoe for beginner runners as it offers a smooth and responsive ride without being over the top.The tongue is just the right thickness to protect the top of my foot without feeling stuffed and uncomfortable. I found this midsole to be soft and somewhat forgiving without being mushy, and definitely not as bouncy as a Rebel V2 or Fuel Cell Elite.

As for improvement (New Balance if you read this): a more breathable upper with a snugger and more precise fit would go a long way!The front rebound is not explosive as the Rebel v2’s is but there is a clear softer impulse off the front. Maybe the forefoot rubber and arrangement could be toned down, thinned out a bit with cushion added above to soften and flex the front more at the ball of foot. It is not only firmer but 5mm thick so it delivers a final layer of response and stability to the shoe. The runners reported a soft and responsive underfoot feel, a bit like the effect of a plate but without the carbon.
