We offer a wide variety of running shoes. Each shoe has its own characteristics. Then how to know what is the difference between various models? To help you out, 21RUN presents the Our Expert’s Opinion column. This column helps you get a better insight into the different characteristics of specific running shoe models and helps you find your perfect pair.
In the Our Expert’s Opinion column our running experts rate shoe models on a number of decisive elements. Do you already know which characteristics your new running shoes should have? Use Our Expert’s Opinion to check if the model you’re looking at meets your demands.
The degree of pronation indicates the extent to which a model provides support for overpronating runners. If the orange bar is on the far right, the model gives a high degree of correction. If the orange bar is on the far left, the model does not correct. Neutral runners don’t need a correction, overpronating runners often do need a certain degree of correction.
The level of support indicates to what extent the shoe supports your foot arch. The amount of support needed is closely connected to ones weight. If the orange bar is on the far left, the shoe provides little support, making the shoe more suitable for lighter runners. If the orange bar is on the far right, the shoe gives a lot of support; thereby making the shoe very suitable for heavier runners.
The level of cushioning indicates the extent to which a shoe absorbs shocks that occur during landing phase. If the orange bar is on the far left, the shoe provides little cushioning. When wearing running shoes that provide little cushioning, you experience a lot of ground contact and responsiveness. If the orange bar is on the far right, the shoe provides a lot of cushioning. When wearing shoes with a lot of cushioning you will experience a softer running feel, but less ground contact and less responsiveness.
The level of responsiveness indicates how energetic a running shoe feels. This often is also referred to as the degree of reactivity. If the orange bar is on the far left, the shoe is less responsive. If the orange bar is on the far right, the shoe is very responsive. When a shoe is responsive the energy of the landing phase is returned to you during take-off.
The New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v11 for men are neutral running shoes. 'Never change a winning team' is what the designers must have though, because these 11th versions of this very popular running shoe only features a few updates. The largest of which is found in the upper: the Engineered Hypoknit upper provides a soft and supportive fit.
These changes make the upper more flexible and more breathable. The stitched structure from the previous version has been replaced by an N-logo which provides this same structure to the foot. The 1080v11 still features a full bootie-construction. This, together with the moulded heel counter, the UltraHeel with memory foam, provides an excellent fit.
The Fresh Foam 1080v11 features a Fresh Foam X midsole. This renewed Fresh Foam material feels lighter and softer, while it also returns more energy during your runs. The laser incisions in the midsole - which provide more cushioning - have also been improved.
The outsole also has been updated. Added underneath the toes and the heel is Endurance rubber. This material is wearproof and has strategically placed grooves. This material is flexible and provides grip and a smooth transition. Underneath the forefoot there's also some Blown Rubber material, which provides grip and was already there in the previous version. The outsole is lightly rounded, thanks to which it follows and supports the foot through heel-to-toe transition.
