The New Balance 860 is another popular running shoe from New Balance that is designed for runners who overpronate. Overpronation occurs when the foot rolls too far inward during the gait cycle, and the 860 is designed to help correct this issue and provide a more stable ride.
Like the 880, the New Balance 860 features a full-length ABZORB cushioning system in the midsole, which helps to absorb shock and provide a responsive ride. However, the 860 also includes a medial post, which is a firmer section of foam on the inner side of the shoe that helps to prevent excessive inward rolling of the foot.
The upper of the New Balance 860 is made from a combination of breathable mesh and supportive overlays, which help to provide a snug and secure fit. The shoe also features a padded tongue and collar for additional comfort, and a durable rubber outsole for good traction on a variety of surfaces.
The New Balance 860 is available in both men's and women's sizes, and is offered in a range of colors to suit different tastes and preferences. It is a versatile shoe that can be used for a variety of running activities, from long-distance training runs to shorter, faster workouts, and is particularly well-suited for runners who need extra support and stability.
