Another update comes to the New Balance 1080. The update will bring runners lower to the ground because its heel height is slightly lower. Additionally, a new heel technology called N2 will appear on the upcoming shoe. It includes Nitrogen-injected TPU creating a cushioning yet durable feel. Both styles are expected to launch in spring 2012.
