New Balance Fresh Foam 860v11


Fresh Foam, meet the 860.

The women's New Balance Fresh Foam 860v11 brings the brand’s premier everyday foam to the legendary 860 for the first time.

Thanks to the Fresh Foam midsole, the 860v11 delivers a soft landing and energetic response—perfect for racking up big mileage. But the switch to Fresh Foam didn’t change the defining feature of the 860: its stability.

New Balance used a firmer piece of foam under the arch to develop a stable feeling. The medial post helps reduce the effects of overpronation and keep you running smoothly.

An engineered mesh upper adds comfort and durability, while a flared heel collar and slightly more aggressive look enhance the shoe’s speedy feel.

The updated women's New Balance Fresh Foam 860v11 is a confident, stylish stability running shoe that provides all the standout features you need for your training.

Love these shoes

Have 2 pairs of New Balance Fresh Foam 860s. Work great for daily walks and hikes. I average about 6 miles a day, mostly on hilly terrain. These hold up great. Only one small complaint: the deep tread catches bits of gravel that can be hard to pry out.

Not the Most Comfortable Shoes

I bought these online because I didn't want to bother with an appointment, but I probably should have. They just aren't nearly as supportive and soft as my aesics Fleet Feet matched me with last time. They hurt when I wear them just ask walking shoes, something strange is going on with the tongue and while the shoe doesn't cut in the same way when I run it just isn't nearly as cushioned. I felt the run in my feet after just 2 miles. I can usually go around 5 before that starts to even register. These could just not be a good fit for me though, I would recommend going into a store to test shoes. It worked out a lot better for me in initial experience at fleet feet. On a high note, they are super cute!

I bought a pair of these shoes for me and my daughter. The comfort and style are great.,however the top eyelet on my daughters shoes tore through the 2nd time she wore them. Will return to the store.

best pair from Fleet Feet yet

Bought a pair of Asics in October 2020 after visiting a Fleet Feet store and having a foot scan, loved them - now in 2021 visited Fleet Feet again and had a rescan and was introduced to the New Balance - amazing shoe for me, the Asics now feel way too hard on my feet I walk 15 miles or more a week on a pavement surface. I love the style, comfort and the white and gray color match all of my outfits. I would definitely recommend. Fleet Feet employee suggested I get one size up from my normal size since I was going to be using these for my exercising shoe - brilliant idea! No rubbing or pinching my feet in any area.

At first I didn't like the change from the 860V10 because I was very happy with the show I purchased last year. After giving the 860v11 a try I was very satisfied with the shoes.
