New Balance Shando: Ready for "virtually any terrain"

Engineered with New Balance's AT Tread outsole, the Shando does not skimp on traction. So much so that it can handle both hard-packed and loose terrains, and can even take on some road segments. With its supportive features, there's also no need to worry about slipping, given the shoe's chunky silhouette. This shoe is as stable as it gets.

What you'll love about the Shando 

  • It's not rigid like most trail shoes but it still offers ample protection, thanks to its DynaSoft midsole. The foam is also very cushy, making the shoe comfortable for all-day wear. 
  • The mono mesh upper is not only light, but it also supplies sufficient ventilation. 
  • The shoe's split crash pad allows for it to tackle some paved sections. 

Who is it for? 

The New Balance Shando is a trail shoe that's made for neutral runners. However, the shoe can also accommodate orthotic inserts, making it suitable for runners who suffer from Plantar Fasciitis and flat-footedness.
