Comments: For many years I have run in the Asics Gel-Nimbus series. I was looking to expand my horizons in search for a high mileage daily training shoe that had a slightly lower heel-to-toe drop and was a little more responsive. The New Balance 1080 v3 is a great shoe that provides some support but remains flexible, the 8mm heel-to-toe drop feels great and the cushioning can handle the 20+ long runs. The shoe wraps around my foot in a great way. This shoe could even be used for the faster paced tempo runs. My only complaint is that the tread life is lacking. I was easily able to get 500+ miles out of my Asics Nimbus shoes. But just after a month and 150 miles later the tread is nearly eroded away to the mid-sole. I would consider buying these shoes again once the tread life has been proven better. I’m a 6’0”, 165 pound mid-foot striker that logs 50 – 75 miles per week with training runs at 7 minute per mile pace.

Comments: This shoe was so close to perfect. All the shortcomings of the previous shoe were fixed. V2 wasn't flexible or cushioned well enough up front, and some how they did a great job improving both. All while dropping the weight! The upper feels and fits like a glove - except the heel is enormous. I tried playing with the lacing, but couldn't quite make it work. Just too little grip back there. I'm disappointed I can't run in these.

Comments: A very good fit and a responsive ride. The forefoot is more flexible with a more fluid roll. A sporty ride vs a leisure ride for this type of shoe.
