New Balance Fresh Foam 860v11

Features

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.

860 women's shoes

There isn't as much of an arch support as the previous pair I purchased. Also the high rubber back of the shoe is easily broken down after several times of removing and putting the shoes on.

Love my New Balance sneakers again!

I always buy New Balance sneakers with extra support to avoid pronation. Fleet Feet put me into the correct size and innersoles for arch support. I now have four pairs of these sneakers but the bright coral are my favorite and so many people have commented on how cool they are.

Definitely a good buy - New Balance Fresh Foam 860v11​

After getting a customized scan this pair of sneakers were recommended as a good option for my needs. Definitely have to agree. I went a full size up from what I've normally worn and it's been ideal. I am a big walker - at least 7-8 miles a day - so I needed durable, cushiony sneakers as others were falling apart easily and my toenails were bruised and awful. Minor issues with these which is the only reason I didn't give 5 stars. Still get a few blisters but nothing close to what I was experiencing. I think maybe I need new socks - lol. These sneakers are great, very comfortable, and really strong for my daily walks.

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!
