The Fresh Foam 1080 Boston and the Fresh Foam Zante V2 Boston will be available for purchase April 1, both online and in select stores.

According to a release, the sneaker, “embraces the collegiate heritage that brings creative minds from all over the world to Boston.” Performance-wise, this shoe is built from engineered mesh to maximize breathability, and a toe spring for extra push.
The Fresh Foam 1080 Boston a sleek spin on the classic New Balance running shoe in the most Boston way possible.
The release describes the sneaker as, “paying tribute to the multitude of elements that Bostonians face each year while training.” This is also apparent in the color selection, which blends snowy whites and greys, with chevrons on the outsole that point forward.
The sockliners on both sneakers features the outline of Massachusetts with a heart over Boston. The Fresh Foam 1080 Boston costs $164.95, while the Fresh Foam Zante V2 Boston will retail at $114.95.
