For the past 7 years, New Balance has always been my go-to running shoe. These shoes are replacing my 1224's which I used for 2 years and totally loved. I was able to get these shoes on Amazon for $10 cheaper than anywhere else, so I was glad to find a good deal. I also appreciate that these shoes were made in the USA.
I walk/run 3 miles at least 3 days a week. I have a bad knee and a bad ankle, so I need to have a stability shoe. These shoes got me covered. Brand new, right out of the box, these shoes felt great. They seem lighter than my 1224's while still giving my arches some support. New Balance shoes tend to run a little small, so I always buy 0.5 size larger. While I'm usually a 6.5, size 7 fits me perfectly.
I recommend these shoes for anyone looking for a reliable, well-made pair of shoes for moderate exercise.
This is one of the best shoes I've worn. I have high insoles and have trouble finding shoes that actually fit. For me, this was a perfect fit, so I bought 3 pairs for the future as we all know, shoe styles change like the weather, you find one you love, they change it! These are great for the gym, treadmill, personal training, everyday wear and even gardening. I have one pair for everyday wear (which was my gym pair for 1 year), and one for the gym, only one left in reserve and are hard to find. My feet feel great in these when new. No slip or slide. Size is right on. I have had my first pair for 2 years, daily wear and the sole inside is compressed somewhat and finally starting to get a bit uncomfortable, but the outer sole is 90-95% intact. A very hardy shoe!!
I especially like the Pink Breast Cancel coloring as the mesh appears whiter. The soylent green is nice but the grey mesh looks a bit dingy right out of the box.
I ordered these 860 running shoes as a replacement for my 760 shoes. I got them for a great deal and was excited to start running in them. I ordered them a half a size bigger like I always do. I expected to love them as much as my 760's. However, I am about 150 miles into the shoes and I am rather disappointed. The toe area of the shoe is not as wide as my 760's were and as a result I am battling blisters. Also, the support of the shoe, I feel, is not as good as my old 760's. They seemed fine while I was running 5-10 miles a week in them but as I have increased my mileage my feet have not done well with them. I am averaging 15-20 miles a week and am now looking for a different pair of shoes. I am bummed that these didn't work out as well for me as the 760's.
