Comments about Mens New Balance 850 Running Shoe:

This is a great shoe with a great fit and works awesome with orthotics. I am a female that needed a smaller heel with a wider toebox. This shoe fit the bill. Only reason for 4 stars is cushioning doesn't feel that best considering I am a heavier runner. Love the cushioning in the 1225s, but heel to toe transition must be different, cuz the ride isn't that good.

    Comments about Mens New Balance 850 Running Shoe:

    I have run in these and every succeeding model since the original 850 came out. They have the right combination of stability and durability for my narrow feet and knock-knees. I usually put a pair of RRS stability or Sorbithane arch runner insoles in them (partly to fill up the space in them a little more (my feet are really narrow).

      These are my 2nd and 3rd pair. Very good value, last through their mile lifespan in good condition despite winter time use. Feel "lighter" than some other shoes I use, but this could be a positive or a negative. They have not broken down or caused any injuries.

      A great trainer shoe. I have been using this new balance line for the past 15 pairs of shoes and they work great. I have been at 30-45 miles/week this year and run on a track team.

        As a long-time runner and Military Member, I need to stay in top condition. I also need to stay healthy, with emphasis on a ability to rapidly deploy. The New Balance 850s definitely help me get there, by providing a stable, yet fast platform. Only buy these shoes if these are the attributes you desire from a shoe. Stay Motivated!

          bought shoes last August, put in 200 miles and just completed Portland Marathon last Sunday. Nopain.Good compressbility, traction and stability. Shoes still in good shape though the heels are a bit worn. Fit nicely though I still prefer the old 801s series with the rollbar. Have 2 pairs ordered.Happy trail.
