A look at some of the special edition footwear and apparel celebrating the 2022 TCS London Marathon
New Balance – TCS London Marathon Fresh Foam X 1080v12 – £160
This special edition of the brand’s premium cushioned running shoe, the 1080 retains all the great features of the regular model but gets a fresh new coat for the marathon with striking design features.
The shoe retains the same plush ride as previous versions so regulars will be happy. It’s minor tweaks that update the shoe and all prove to make it a little better. A new knitted upper provides targeted support around the foot and helps to create a more secure fit. Along with slight changes to the shape of the midsole the shoe feels a little more stable while retaining that super-soft feel.
The outsole has newly mapped flex groves which, along with blown-rubber inserts enhance that smooth riding sensation.
The striking new colour has neon highlights and of course the ‘LDN’ logo to the lateral side of the shoe to make this version extra special.
New Balance – London Marathon Jacket – £100
Made with recycled polyester, this wind and water-resistant jacket is perfect for the training throughout autumn and into winter.
Packed with useful touches, the jacket features zip pockets, reflective details and of course, the 2022 TCS London Marathon logo.

The ICEx fast drying fabric used in this t-shirt is ideal for any workout. The soft touch, breathable fabric is made from 95% recycled material and has a striking design.
