Finally, a strappy shoe that’s as stunning as it is stable. Meet the Portia, the mary jane with a rubber outsole for traction and a built-in steel shank designed for stability on the 1 ½” heel. Brimming with comfort features like padded heel collars, forefoot gel pads, removable memory foam footbeds with stability cradles and the signature New Balance technologies of Abzorb® shock absorption and Dri-Lex® moisture-wicking linings. All this support comes with the style you appreciate. Buttery soft leather with snakeskin side-detailing. Eye-catching leather overlays. And stunning details like the asymmetric hook-and-loop closure that’s cleverly disguised with an elegant decorative button. You’ll feel confident with every move, whether you’re out dining… or dancing!
