New Balance 880v8 Men
Big G Says…
The 880 is one of the biggest selling neutral shoes in the us and the same applies in SA.
So what makes it so popular? A review by Jack Rabbit said that the reason was "they are like a dependable running partner that sees you through long run days with a smile".
This is a no-gimmick shoe with virtually no changes from the equally popular v7. The TRUFUSE cushioning is neither too soft or too firm giving good energy return. The T-beam embedded into the midsole improves the integrity (stability) in mid-stance and the blown rubber outsole provides good traction on wet and dry surfaces.
The firm heel counter gives good rear-foot stability. But the main feature of the 880 is its comfortable fit. The no-sew engineered mesh uppers allow for a perfect fit which of course can be further fine-tuned with the availability of medium and wide widths in both men and ladies models. The 880 is a true workhorse - to protect and perform for the long run.
