    Comments about Womens New Balance 860 Running Shoe:

    Very stylish and great for my needs. I over-pronate and haven't had any issues or pain in my feet or knees since buying these. My arches are very high, and while I could definitely use more support, it hasn't caused any pain in joints, feet or muscles since running in these. The wide size fits well, wide near the ball of my foot but not overly-wide anywhere else. Love them!

      Comments about Womens New Balance 860 Running Shoe:

      I have been wearing the asics 2100 series for YEARS...but the most recent 2160 was a real disappointment. After swearing I would never run in anything but asics, I went out on a limb and ordered the New Balance 860's based on a recommendation from the great staff at RRS. Am I sure glad I did!! These shoes are light, comfortable right out of the box, and simply a joy to run in. I have a knee issue as well, and these shoes definitely provide enough cushioning. I think I have found my new shoe!

      I run 15 to 20 miles/week. Comfortable and lightweight. Toe box narrower than I expected. Had to go up a 1/2 size. Had foot surgery and need roomy toe box. Don't know whether I will buy this shoe again. Only have had them a couple of weeks.

        Comments about Womens New Balance 860 Running Shoe:

        I hate the fact that New Balance changes their shoe models every year, but this reincarnation of the NB760 is a great improvement. I have been in this New Balance series since the NB767 and this one is the best so far. Perfect balance of support and cushioning, at least for my feet. Going to order a few more pairs to have in reserve, just in case the next manifestation is not so satisfactory!

          I have very mild overpronation when I run so I went with these stability shoes. They were comfortable and easy to run in from the first time putting them on. No irritation points, great support and stability. As always, New Balance has it right.

                  I run 24 miles a week on a paved trail and run 10K road races. I'm always worried about trying a new shoe and was pleasantly surprised how great this shoe is. Can't think of anything that's not so great.
