The ultimate cross-trainer, the New Balance 1211 excels at every part of your workout—go from a quick run on the treadmill to your aerobics class without having to lace up another pair of shoes. Lower to the ground than its predecessor the 1210, this superior cross-training shoe utilizes a medial post plus Stability Web® and its lower height to increase your stability throughout all training movements. All this magnificence sits on a cutting-edge platform: N-ergy® and ACTEVA® LITE provide advanced cushioning for sublime comfort that lasts and lasts.

    "I have purchased New Balance shoes for decades, and this is by far the worst shoe ever! It is at least 1/2 inch narrower than others, and much shorter in length. There is no arch support and my ankles roll in constantly. After a couple of hours my feet hurt and are very tired! Do not purchase this one!"

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    "I was trying to replace and older pair of cross trainers that aren't made any longer. After reading other reviews and doing some research I made the decision that the 1211 was the best choice for my needs. I am so glad I did. They are comfortable, fit well and are everything I need. If I had one "ding" against them I wish they had better stability for lateral movements/steps. The stability is good, but I would like a little more. These are light weight, flex in all the right places. I can easily stay in them all day and be comfortable."
