The motivation behind the New Balance 880v4 women’s running shoe is simple: engineer a durable, cushioned shoe that helps runners log more miles comfortably. We started from the pavement up, building this neutral ride with 2 layers of midsole foam: durable ABZORB® cushioning closest to the ground and plush ACTEVA® LITE against the foot. T-BEAM technology in the midfoot provides lightweight support. And for a flexible fit, our FantomFit upper cradles your foot with no-sew overlays.
