Extra stable outsoles

The outsole is made of solid rubber with deep, horizontal grooves. It is built for heavy-framed runners and serious overpronators; the full contact outsole gives another element of stability to the shoe.

ABZORB foam in the midsole

The proprietary ABZORB foam adds a dose of flexibility to an otherwise very stiff shoe that is designed for heavy runners with excessive overpronation. It makes the run a bit softer with decent rebound features.

High-density foam in the New Balance 587

Maximum control is delivered through a high-density foam on the medial side. A TPU shank extends from the lateral to the medial side to hold the heel, stabilize the ride, and provide superior structure in this shoe.

Upper’s enhanced structure

New Balance uses breathable mesh with synthetic overlays all over the upper to add support and structure. An external heel counter works with the lateral and medial posts to lock down the foot from excessive overpronation.
