FITS GREAT. WOULD ORDER SAME SHOE AGAIN.
When compaired to other comp Tennis shoes these do not have the same ease of pivot. I am an active Doctor of Physical Therapy in her late 30s. I usually am absolutely loyal to New Balance. New Balance is excellent for my flat feet, ankle instability however with the small pivot point at the inside ball of the foot that stuck more than other brands. I don't want to increase strain on my bilateral meniscus tears due to the poor pivot vs others.
I wanted to give these shoes some time before I wrote my review. Break them in and see how they felt. I have been buying NB now for 16 years, and these are the worst. The toe box keeps rubbing on my small toe with any amount of walking. It gets extremely uncomfortable, and I run the risk of getting a blister (both left and right feet) . They are the same "size" and "width" of all my previous NB shoes, but they have really let me down with these ones.
I have a lot of issues with my feet - the latest being plantar fasciitis. I needed to find a pair of sneakers with a neutral heel (not the kind like brooks that lean to the right) and cushioning! I've tried over 20 pairs of sneakers - yep 20 - and most were just not working for me. The best up to this point were the Hoka Constant, which has a lot of support and cushioning. But I couldn't wear my orthotic with it. However, I think I've finally found a good shoe in the NB 1080! It's cushioned, supportive, and will accommodate my orthotic without it being too much on the arch. My only 'nits' - I wish they had the tongue strap for the laces so that the tongue doesn't move. It keeps shifting to the side..very annoying. I also wish the toe box was just a bit deeper so my toes didn't hit the top of the shoe. It's not a deal breaker, just a bit annoying. I usually take a narrow, but found the medium width to be perfect so I'd have the wider toe box. Ankle still feels secure. Really liking these shoes! PLUS - they are fun looking!!
Fits well and looks sharp. The reinforcement over the top of the big toe is nicei.
