    NB 860v5 -versus- 860v6

    - Atlanta, Ga

    "Note: Recommend option "MAYBE" was not available. Quality & durability of my NB 860v6 is still-to-be-determined. If these have similar problems to my 860v5, I'll never buy this series again. My 2 yr old 860v5 's that were lightly-to-medium used for walking have experienced sole separation from the upper, and mini tears on upper fabric. A first for me w/NB running shoes. My v5's coulda been a lemon, but, I did see one other reviewer who had similar issues. v5 color combinations appealed to me; v6...not so much. But 'no color' was not an option. v5 & v6 are 'very' comfortable and fit well. Bought the v6 online due to a pending trip and because it was a known entity (hoped so anyway). Ok so far after 2 months."

    Great Shoes

    "I have been wearing 880's for 5 or 6 years now. I never buy any other kind of athletic shoe anymore. They are wonderful. The most recent purchase was for my husband. He feels the same way. Once I got him to try a pair, he was sold! What we both really like about the 880's besides the fit is the flexibility. They are not stiff like other athletic shoes we have tried. Great shoes!"

    Where it started for me

    "These shoes are the first style of the 860's I owned. I originally tried them out a year ago and that is when I began to see where these were the right shoe for me. I had suffered a few injuries prior to running with these. Then one weekend, I ran in a Ragnar relay and these were the only shoes I wore. The injury I had been dealing with continuously, suddenly disappeared. They are the perfect fit for my foot (2E) and they are going to be the shoe I choose always."

    "Bought 860v6 4E. Previous was 960v2 4E which fit great. The v6s were narrow, especially in the mid-foot area. After wearing all day, could hardly walk the next day my feet were so sore."

    "6'2", 230 pounds and runs on average 20 miles a week. I bought one pair of these and came back for a second after 3 months. These have provided the support others have been lacking while not adding much weight to the shoe. I am sure I will be back for a third pair before the year is over."

    "After daily use for about a year, they still look good and are comfortable for daily wear. The stability has held up well, just starting to see signs of heel wear. They've been washed a couple times and dry quickly. NB makes the only shoes I've found that consistently fit and wear with quality and that's why I'll be buying another pair of NB to replace these."

    Love my 860's

    "This updated version of the 860 works great for me. The fit is very close to the older 860's I've owned but the shoe has a lower profile. This helps the shoe look more stylish. I definitely recommend it if this is the type of shoe that fits your foot."

    Only bought it because it was 1 of the few in my width

    MyNB Silver Member

    MyNB members may earn NB points for writing product reviews

    "I only bought the model because it was one of the few New Balance and every other tech running shoe manufacturers options in a narrow width. There are other shoes marketed by New Balance and other manufacturers that I would have preferred but were not available in narrow widths. Why are men with narrow width feet discriminated against. Evey shoe should be available in Men's B."

    So different to the V5 . . . Why?

    - Berkley, Mi

    "Comfortable shoe unless you have an Achilles problem. The V5 had a cut out in the Achilles area but the V6 doesn't and it's way over padded. This causes pressure on the Achilles tendon and therefore a painful run. Back to the V5s for me I'm afraid."

    860V6 is a comfortable shoe

    - Syracuse, NY

    "The 860V6 has a stylish look and is a comfortable sneaker. The support is great for how I walk and run. I use it as an all around sneaker to play sports like Pickleball and as a walk around shoe. Of all the sneakers I have bought, I always come back to this shoe."

    Jul 12, 2016

    Very comfortable shoes, the V6 is the best so far.

    - Tulsa

    "Happy with these shoes. I buy a pair about every 9 months as I walk on concrete most of the day in my job. Also great for walking the dog."

    Great Shoe That Keeps Getting Bigger

    - Mustang, OK

    "I have run in the last 3 versions of the 860, and they have all been great shoes! However, they seem to keep getting bigger. In v4, a 10.5 fit me perfectly. In v5 it was a 10. When v6 came out I started with a 10, and it seemed too loose. So I went with a 9.5 and it fit perfectly. I still have all 3 pairs (v4/5/6) and they all fit perfectly even though they are 3 different sizes! So my foot isn't shrinking, the shoes are getting larger! I definitely recommend being fitted at a store before buying online."

    Excellent fit, comfort, stability.

    - Santa Cruz, CA, USA

    "Overall performance of this shoe has been superb like all NB shoes I have owned. The 860v6 is comfortable, it is well fit to my feet for both running and walking and is has excellent stability for trail running. I highly recommend this product!"

    Very Comfortable Shoe

    - Gainesville, FL

    "I got this shoe for my husband as we were looking for a new sneaker for him and it can be difficult because of his shoe size. We got this for him in a size 13 width 2E and he says it fits great and supports his flat feet very well and it is wide enough for him (even through the middle of the foot around the top of the arch). We used to buy him the Asics Kayano in a size 13.5 4E and he says these fit much better and are more comfortable."

    Great Service and Shoes

    - Pittsburgh, PA, USA

    "I regularly get New Balance shoes for running, but never ordered directly off website. Process was smooth and easy, and shoes came very fast. They were exactly what I wanted - a second pair of the shoe I am running with now, just a different color. Perfect."

    Great long distance shoe with stability

    - Los Angeles, CA, USA

    "I've been running in New Balance shoes for many years. The new 860v6 shoes are my favorites. I recently ran the LA Marathon and completed all my training as well as the race in them. They are super comfortable right out of the box and exceptionally durable. I recently bought a new pair, not because my originals felt spent, but because I liked the color scheme. I will buy these shoes again and again until it's time to try the new 860v7's.....even then, it will be hard to change."

    Nice comfortable shoe

    - Lake placid ny

    "Nice comfortable shoe. Had the m890gr5 prior which till this day are my favorite. These are comfortable also but a little bulky compared to other style I wore."

    Not enough padding for support.

    - B, VA

    "This shoe looks good on the foot. I haven't run in this shoe just several hours of causal walking. It doesn't have enough insole padding to protect the heel. For the price I was disappointed in the support."

    Apr 30, 2016

    It has a great appearance

    - Carson, CA, USA

    "The shoe isn't as comfortable as I had hoped it would be."

    heel area

    - Tucson, AZ, USA

    "I have had this same problem with NB before where the heel kind of get pushed down and creates a problem area that rubs when you run. I have tried to rub it out but it seems to be a manufacturing defect. Unfortunately, I've already thrown away the box and mainling material."

    Great fitting workout shoe!!!

    good cushiony poor fit

    - Oklahoma

    "I have always purchased new balance shoes. I have large feet (size 15). A lot of running shoes I usually go up a size. New balance I do not have this problem. I purchased these 860 v6 and the fit is poor. The mid foot and toe box are what I expected. However at the heel it is very loose. These shoes run very large. You would do well to try them on in a store and if you plan on using these for running, run in them first. Not sure why these are so much larger. I took insole out and tried to put them in my 810 v3 and the heel rolled up on back of shoe a half to 3/4". That is quiet a bit of difference. Definitely not the fit I am used to from new balance"

    Shoes are great, fit well and service was very fast

    Keeping. Them

    - Nyc

    "The 860v6 is a good stability shoe. The podiatrist hates the cheap thin foam insole that comes with new balance shoes so he gave me an orthtotic insert and they feel great. I wish new balance would go back to wider and deeper toe boxes. The toe box on the 860v6 is not great, better then a lot of others but needs a bit more depth and width in the women's EE"

    Feb 11, 2016

    New Balance has hit a home run with this shoe!

    - Sand Springs,Ok

    "After 6 years of running & many styles & brands of shoes,Bingo! These shoes are very comfortable,fit perfectly,& No blisters after a long run. I just purchased a second pair for my next marathon as I have put over 300 miles on these awesome runners!"
