[Looking for the latest version? The New Balance 860 v13 is available now.]

The New Balance 860 v12 is refreshed with a sleek look and more comfortable upper while giving you the same reliable support and stability runners and walkers love.

The newest 860 is a stability running shoe that feels slightly softer underfoot compared to previous versions yet is firm enough to prevent excess overpronation and ankle rolling. New Balance’s two-layer Fresh Foam midsole and firmer dual-density foam located under the midfoot and arch give you soft landings in the heel and responsive take-offs that make this shoe a perfect daily trainer for anyone looking for a little more stability or guidance out of their running shoe.

Your feet will stay cool and comfortable in the 860 v12 thanks to a breathable double jacquard upper. Strategic embroidery on the sides of the upper also give the shoe extra foot support while a refreshed heel design with reflective detailing cradles the heel for better ankle stability.

New Balance is often known for a roomy toe box, and the 860 v12 is no exception. A snug midfoot keeps the foot secure, and the generous space up front lets the toes wiggle during long runs whether you like running in thicker or thinner socks.

Durable and reliable, the New Balance 860 v12 is perfect for runners looking for a soft and stable ride for everyday miles on the road.

What's New + -

New Balance replaced the ultra-heel design found on the previous version with a softer heel collar that gives the shoe a more accommodating fit and extra ankle support. Loyal 860 wearers who preferred the more structured heel of the v10 will enjoy the extra security and style the new heel counter adds to the v12. While the shoe utilizes the same two-layer Fresh Foam midsole, our reviewers found that the newest version feels slightly softer and flexible enough in the forefoot to keep the shoe from feeling too stiff.

Who It's Best For + -

Similar to many other shoes in New Balance’s lineup, the 860 v12 features a roomy toe box that runners with wide feet or bunions have come to appreciate. The 860’s dual-density medial post puts a firmer foam under the arch of the foot gives runners extra stability and prevents your ankle and foot from turning inward. The combination of responsive cushion and support make the New Balance 860 v12 perfect runners looking for some stability out of their daily training shoe.

Why You'll Love It + -

Updated with fresh colorways and a modern design, runners and walkers that land on the New Balance 860 v12 will love its stability, cushioning and durability. A two-layer Fresh Foam midsole and wide toe box keep the feet happy and the ride slightly softer than previous versions without sacrificing the firmness or responsiveness that gives the running shoe inherent stability and support.

I bought these shoes recently from Fleet Feet and I have to say the service was quick in getting the product to me and the shoes are fantastic. I'd been ordering shoes off Amazon, but the shoes never seemed to be right, so I decided to try Fleet Feet as I had bought shoes from one of their stores locally several years ago. I can say that buying the shoes on Fleet Feet has been a far better experience. They ship the right size and the shoes are great. My next order will definitely be with Fleet Feet or I will purchase them at their store here in Fayetteville.

Good Shoe and Good Price

New Balance Fresh Foam 860 v12 is a great shoe for the dollar. Cheaper than the Hoka's. The toe box is large. I would like to see NB have a few more color options like offered for the Women. I plan to buy another pair when these wear out.
