    Comments about Womens New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v6 Running Shoe:

    I keep 3 pairs of shoes in a rotation since I run almost every day. I noticed that after five miles with these the bottom of my feet were hurting. Doesn't happen with my Brooks Glycerin or Saucony ISOs. A couple days ago I took a different route where there are the little bumps on the sidewalk whenever the sidewalk meets the road (as the sidewalk goes down to meet the road). In these shoes I can feel those bumps. Took my Glycerins 14s on the same route and I can't feel those bumps at all. I thought I might keep these for runs < 5 miles but I also realized that these are causing me ankle pain. They only have 150 miles on them and my Brooks have close to 300... so they obviously don't last. I don't think I will run in these any more. Going to try Glycerin 15s. Sadly, it has been more than 3 months since I bought these so can't return them.

      I've been wearing the New Balance 1080 series since at least version three, but I still haven't gotten used to this update. The shoes feel much stiffer and less comfortable than my previous ones, even after several runs. They also seem to run slightly larger than the prior version.

      very hard and there was no bounce..i wear the asics nimbus
      which i love just wantwd to try something different
      but now i know Asics are the shies for me and my loooong runs

      Comments about Womens New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v6 Running Shoe:

      Bought on the New Balance folks' recommendation as a replacement for my 870v4 workout shoes that no longer are available. So far they are supportive and good for walking and gym work. Roomy toe box, too. Litmus test: they don't slip when I'm planking or doing push ups. Insole could be more padded so I'll probably remove them and slip in a pair of Superfeet insoles.

      Totally wrong size mailed, returned at store, sneakers OK

      By Ann

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Womens New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v6 Running Shoe:

      I ordered these via mail, and a totally different size and width were sent to me. When I called, I was told they had no more of that size. So did they send the wrong size on purpose or was it a mistake??? I opted to return them at the store where I tried on a slightly different size, that worked great. These shoes fit different than my prior Brooks shoes. In any case, the store did a return and new sale, so at first, they charged me more than the mail order price. When I complained and asked to be reimbursed, they did so nicely. Ran a few miles with them today. Seem to be OK, just not as cushioned as the Brooks.

      Perfect cushy shoes for my midweek runs. I tried wearing them in a half marathon and something hurtthe side of my foot. It was very downhill, however,so that could've been part of the problem. They've never had hurt me any other time. They are wide enough in the toebox and feel great in the upper as well. I always get lots of compliments on how cute the shoes are!

      This shoe does not fit as well as previous versions. I have worn 1080s for a number of years and have been happy with them. This V6 has a shallower toe box which makes it feel too narrow. I returned these.

      Comments about Womens New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v6 Running Shoe:

      These shoes fit like a glove and provide an excellent amount of support, cushioning and overall feel like I am running on a cloud! I used to wear Asics, and I thought they were great but then I tried these and they are phenomenal. I would recommend these to anyone, but particularly anyone who needs that extra comfort and support. I have hip/sciatica pain, occasional knee pain and I am extremely flat-footed so finding a shoe that can not only accommodate me with walking, but running as well is a good shoe in my book!

      Also, I would highly recommend Road Runner Sports Company because they have excellent customer service, shipping was free for standard 5-7 days and I got it in two, with up-to-date emails letting me know my shoes were on the way etc.

      New Balance messed with a good thing

      By Elizabeth

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Womens New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v6 Running Shoe:

      I've been a big fan of the 1080 for the last few versions. I bought 4 pairs of the 1080v5, which had to be my favorite running shoe ever. The "fresh foam" 1080v6 is an AWFUL upgrade. The arch is absurdly high, the foam is less comfort, more squishy, and now my knees have started to hurt after running.
