The New Balance 860 is known for providing stable, reliable support and this latest version is no different.
A two-layer Fresh Foam midsole was added to the 860 for the first time last year and continues in this latest update. Shoe designers used a slightly softer foam compound on the bottom layer of this version, creating a more flexible ride.
While the midsole gives the shoe a smooth and cushioned feel, it remains firm enough to feel stable.
A dual-density medial post helps reduce the effects of overpronation, providing stability during every stride. You can feel confident and secure in the New Balance 860v12.
Reviewers noticed how supportive the shoe feels while still remaining responsive.
“I think that longtime fans of this shoe will be happy that the firm, stable, responsive ride you expect from the 860 is back in the latest version of the shoe,” one reviewer says. “The v12 offers all the firm, responsive cushioning that you need on a nice stable platform.”
