The Comrades Fresh Foam 1080 delivers the teams’ long-awaited undertaking of bringing Fresh Foam to premiere neutral; a substantial midsole with an inherently stable footprint and careful attention to areas of flex.

The Comrades Fresh Foam 1080 gives runners a pinnacle neutral shoe that can handle any amount of mileage.

With a one piece Fresh Foam midsole the Comrades Fresh Foam 1080 gives runners a continuously smooth ride without interference. An intelligent emboss on the top bed of the midsole in conjunction with data driven flex groove placement, combine to complement flexibility in this tremendously cushioned underfoot shoe.

The Comrades Fresh Foam 1080 features a bootie-construction specifically designed to accommodate various instep heights and foot volumes to wrap the midfoot securely. An engineered mesh in the vamp adds to the luxurious, premium appeal, designed to give runners room for natural toe splay as they log long miles.

The Comrades Fresh Foam 1080 looks to take care of a runner’s feet from top to bottom, 360 degrees. Runners looking for premium technology and lux cushioning can turn to the Fresh Foam 1080 to deliver an innovative high mileage running shoe with a plush, soft ride.
