Joe's New Balance Outlet has a 25% off deal, with 1080v11 and 880v11 being included in the promos for the first time. Most sizes are available, wide widths included, but not in all colors
Your comment cannot be blank.
- I'm a 9.5 wide and the 880v11 fit very well. Just a very solid all around daily trainer shoe, the Fresh Foam is soft and bouncy, but you get some ground feel on this shoe because of the lower stack height in the forefoot (18mm if I recall correctly). This is the "safe" shoe as I think it is the jack of all trades, but master of none. Would work well as a walking shoe. Oh, and it's built like a tank there's so much rubber on the outsole that it still seems to not be super worn after 550 miles
- 1080v11: personally have not worn this shoe, but there are some people out there who really hate the heel counter on this shoe, so beware. The newer v12 and the stability version Vongo v5 have a more standard heel. Lots of foam underfoot (but less than the More v3), so I'm assuming it will be a nice, cushy ride.

Personally this is my recovery shoe and saucony speed 2's are my daily trainer.
I got the Ultraboost 19.5 last month while on sale, and will use that for my steady long run. And I plan to use 1080v11 for tempo, recovery and occasional speed works. I will use my Saucony Speed 2 exclusively for just speed work/hill.
On the lookout for one last pair of shoes for race day. Those are usually not on sale, but hopefully will find one during Thanksgiving.
