New Balance 880v9 Men
Big G Says…
The N.B. 880 has been one of the most popular shoes worldwide for a long time. lt has been our No1 seller in both men's and ladies models for the last 2 years. The 880v9 does not break with tradition. The engine room of the v9 is unchanged from the v8 - the midsole cushioning (Trufuse) comprises a softer upper layer over a firmer Revlite base and is a perfect balance ...not too soft and not too hard like a perfectly boiled egg...ideal for longer runs and sufficiently durable to handle high mileages.
The upper has been freshened up to look more stylish and modern. The woven knit mesh has enough structure to control the foot snugly but has enough flexibility for comfort.
So this no-frills shoe is hard to fault...A low-risk dependable option for those looking for a solid stable neutral workhorse.
The cherry on the top of the cake is the existence of width fittings in both the men's and ladies' versions so a perfect fit is almost guaranteed. The standard-fit caters for most but in SA there are many with flatter and wider feet than average...so all in all a very safe choice if you are in any doubt about what neutral shoe to try.
