The New Balance Fresh Foam 980v1 is considered to be a minimum feature shoe, so it is expected to see less midsole technologies. The fact that it is a neutral trainer that promotes a natural gait should convince you that it needs no cushioning technologies to become a hit among barefoot and minimalist runners. The New Balance Fresh Foam 980v1 pursues a lightweight concept, which is why it only has one midsole technology in the form of Fresh Foam.
Neutral trainers that are designed for the road are usually incorporated with a standard outsole technology, which functions well on even surfaces. The New Balance Fresh Foam 980v1 is not exception to this. Despite the funky sides of the sole, the under surface has a non- aggressive treading style with snake-skin like design. It is made from a blown rubber compound. Its under surface is almost flat and shows no sign of lugs. The outer sole of the New Balance Fresh Foam 980v1 is a new development of New Balance.
