Video reviews and unboxing
- The 6th version of the New Balance 860 features an updated upper. It comes with an improved padded neoprene tongue that holds the lace in place while giving addition support and comfort. The midfoot and forefoot is a lot wider, giving a roomy toe box.
- The forefoot was also enhanced to increase toe spring. It also has added cushioning and improved dual density post for stability and support in the early stages of the running gait.
The New Balance 860 v6 has a standard running shoe length. The midfoot, heel and forefoot are of standard measurements, just like the New Balance 860 v9 running shoe. This shoe is also available in both narrow and extra wide widths, accommodating a wide range of feet.
The outsole unit utilizes the brand’s Ndurance Carbon Rubber technology that delivers reliable traction on both wet and dry surfaces while giving added cushioning and responsiveness. This carbon rubber is highly reliable and offers optimal durability in high wear areas.
This New Balance shoe uses the ACTEVA LITE midsole foam that is extended to the entire midsole, giving a durable underfoot cushioning. This works impressively well with the shoe’s Medial Post that is strategically placed in the midfoot to correct overpronation.
The ABZORB Crash Pad is another midsole foam that delivers great durability and additional cushioning needed during heel strike. It efficiently absorbs impact for a more stable ride.
The upper of the New Balance 860 v6 uses an open mesh that is breathable and lightweight. It performs efficiently together with the TPU Skin Upper that gives second-skin fit while securing the foot for a much better performance.
The shoe uses the traditional sockliner that gives more underfoot cushioning while the Asymmetrical Heel Counter offers heel lockdown and aids in addressing overpronation.
