Special Edition New Balance Fresh Foam 1080 v9 London Marathon
The one in London is a marathon that competes with the "destroy records" of Berlin for showing off the informal title of best European marathon. Not in vain is, along with those of New York, Boston, Chicago and the aforementioned Berlin, one of the five "Majors" that have traditionally been considered the most important marathons in the world.
And as the world is changing, there are other marathons that fight to enter this trio, mainly Tokyo, although in Spain there are three marathons: Seville, Valencia and Barcelona, which do not stop to climb positions in terms of quality of organization, brands and participants , having become, little by little, international referents.
And well, the big ones precisely enjoy the privilege of having slippers of special commemorative editions and this Virgin Money London Marathon 2019 could not be less.
New Balance, repeating as one of the main sponsors of the race, presents, one more year, its iconic Fresh Foam 1080 as an official sneaker. This New Balance Fresh Foam 1080 v9, for neutral tread or plantillera, and of which we have already done a complete review in the Stock Exchange of the Corridor, has all the characteristics that define it as a great option to improve our performance and protect us from injuries . And what is changing in this London Edition? Well, since it maintains all the technologies and materials that make it one of the best models of New Balance and all the daily training shoes, what is presented differently is basically the aesthetic. As it can not be otherwise, the exterior finishes have been made with colors and details related to this race.
Among them dramatically highlights the rear inscription on both heels: "Run LDN", where the verb is inserted in the left foot and the city in the right. We have all the details of this model in this specific article of 1080 v9, but we advance here the main characteristics:
