The New Balance Fresh Foam X 860 v13 offers key updates to an already popular daily stability running and walking shoe that will provide a more comfortable and energetic experience. The revamped midsole setup establishes a fantastic blend between softness and energy return. There are two layers of foam in the midsole that work together to bring a supremely plush, step-in feel as well as a snappy toe-off that will keep the legs moving more efficiently.
With this version, New Balance focused on providing a system of stability rather than just the medial post. Here, the midsole geometry, upper design, and medial post work harmoniously together to deliver a truly supportive yet comfortable ride. Additionally, the 860 v13's upper is structured with a breathable engineered mesh that works with the internal gusseted tongue to give a secure fit that assists with stability. Overall, the 860 v13 improves upon a classic by rebuilding the midsole and outsole setup to deliver a more balanced ride, but sticks to its core principle of being a go-to everyday stability trainer.
