The New Balance 1080v4 builds on the previous version in offering a light, flexible, neutral shoe, with soft yet responsive cushioning. This version feels slightly softer, and more flexible, making it a great shoe for transitioning to forefoot running, or for lighter neutral runners.
The New Balance 1080v4 is an excellent neutral shoe for the runner looking for a lightweight, fast and flexible shoe. I would be a little concerned if I was a heavier runner, or one who is just starting, as it isn't the most heavily cushioned shoe, however if you're lighter on you feet, or are looking to transition to forefoot, this is an excellent choice. We give it an 8.5 out of 10
