New Balance Fresh Foam 860 v12
The New Balance 860v12 provides reliable support and cushioning runners and walkers love.
[Looking for the latest version? The New Balance 860 v13 is available now.]
The New Balance 860 v12 is refreshed with a sleek 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.

This is my third pair - white, lavender, and now black! They are very comfortable and they aid in my balance. They were recommended to me by the biomechanics therapist working with me. I am walking better. The shoes are structurally sound, the material allows your feet to breathe and the foam insoles are very supportive. I will be buying another color soon - fashion is not sacrificed with these shoes..
shoe runs small, had to return and get half size bigger
Have worn this model for years. It’s perfect for my feet issues. Love this new blue/green color. This year’s shoe is also easier to slip on even though I have a shoe horn.
Great shoes! Totally satisfied!
My regular running shoe brand narrowed their toe box, so I went in search of a cushy, stable women's shoe. The women's New Balance shoes I purchased came in extra wide, and it made a tremendous difference in my run! Issues I had been having with my knees subsided. I subtracted one star in my rating because the shoes are not as cushioned as I am used to and the arch support is less than I had in my Saucony shoes. Still, the extra wide option will make this my go-to shoe when I need a new pair.
