    "I have been wearing the 860's for several years now and these are NOT like the others. These are super stiff and I had knee and back pain right after running. I DO NOT recommend these. Maybe the v7 are better???"

    Not what I expected

    "They looked different online, when I received them I wasn't as impressed. I wear a size 6 they were way too small and so unbelievably narrow. Within minutes of putting them on my feet started tingling and by ten minutes my hip and back hurt. I have a lot of feet issues plantar fasciitis, bursitis, mild bunions and fibromyalgia that affects my feet. I've had new balance sneakers in the past so I returned them and tried different ones and the fit was all wrong, so I returned those too."

    "I use this stability running shoe for walking and it is quite comfortable. I usually wear a wide but had to order a regular width and it's still wide but comfortable with thicker socks."

    "I ALWAYS buy new balance. I was excited to try these sneakers but in less than a month they ripped returned and 2 weeks in with my new pair they are ripping. I run 3x a week - very disappointed!!"

    Total support and comfort

    - WA

    "Got these initially in Australia, wore the pair out and glad to be able to purchase a second pair. Totally great for wide feet. Very pleased."

    Tip of shoe tight when sprinting

    - New York Coty

    "When I do long distance runs, these are perfect. But if I transition from the pavement to the track to end a long run hard, you will feel the tightness on the toes. Not extremely bad, but it isn't meant for speed transitioning."

    NB 860 Fit is too loose in the heel

    - MA

    "I need to wear a wide size with heavy socks and the heel on this model seemed too loose. The toe box seemed roomy and the support/cushioning seemed comfortable but heel is too loose."

    Jun 21, 2016

    Awesome shoe!

    - PA

    "My mom & I have numerous pairs of this shoe. We walk several miles a day and this is the perfect shoe for us. Both order a 10 2A for our narrow feet & they fit perfect ever time."

    Love these shoes!

    - Greensboro, NC

    "Looking to replace my 580v4, I ordered these and loved them from the moment I put them on! I run 20-25 miles a week and am prone to shin splints...through years of trial and error I have learned New Balance stability runners work best for me! I feel a very very small difference in toe room and might contemplate a half size larger next time but having a wide foot-- I did not need to order the wide width! Awesome support and very little leg and foot fatigue! HIGHLY RECOMMEND you try these! Purple is my fav color so BONUS points!!!"

    Love NB Athletic Shoes

    - Chicago, Illinois

    "While I love NB athletic shoes and am a loyal buyer, the 860v2 runs short; i would recommend ordering ½ larger. After taking these shoes on holiday, I had to leave them behind because they were uncomfortable. I ordered the 1540v2, hopefully, these will give me the NB experience I have grown fond of."

    May 27, 2016

    Very comfortable. Second pair ordered this year.

    - Green Bay, WI, USA

    "Last month I purchased a pair of 860v6's and was so pleased that I ordered a second pair this month. The model was the recommendation of your employee after I asked about an old pair I had worn out. It was an earlier 860. My granddaughter thinks they are cool--not at all "old lady" looking! That's a bonus for me! Thanks."

    Great walking/running shoe

    - MIdland MI

    "Love NB!!! Great colors to choose from, not boring!"

    May 4, 2016

    Should have been 5 stars

    - Vancouver, WA, USA

    "Ordered these twice. The first pair ran small which is a first for New Balance had to send back and re-order a half size bigger. Love the looks like the feel and would have given 5 stars if New Balance didn't use the cheapest laces available. it seem like this is one place they are saving money. Years back I had shoes that had a type of ribbed lace that did not come undone and did not have to have a double knot. This pair does not even have a round lace but it is flat like a dress shoe and very light in weight. For the money I would expect to see a full quality shoe. Hopefully this is not the trend for the future with their shoe line."

    Cute and very comfortable.

    - Medford, NJ, USA

    "They are cute and very comfortable. I always buy New Balance running shoes, because they fit better and feel better than any other major brand I've tried."

    May 1, 2016

    Not good arch support. Very soft footbed.

    - Reno, NV, USA

    "After walking around in these shoes for a couple of hours, my feet began to ache and I could not wait to sit down. I will not buy this shoe again for longer walks. I love my NB 860WB4 shoes made in the USA, but you do not carry them anymore. The above shoe is cheap in comparison"

    NB 860 series

    - Vermont

    "This series and the ones before are the only NB sneakers I have worn for years."

    The 860 has great colors and very comfortable

    Great Fit for Plantar Fasciitis

    - PA

    "I moved to minimalist shoes over the last 3 years and developed Plantar Fasciitis. I just bought this shoe after researching shoes good for this condition and the recommendation at my local running store. I have a narrow foot and it fits me well with lots of room in the toe box. They were comfortable in the store from the first time I put them on. Now I just got back from my first run in my new shoes (5K) and I love them. My arch pain was almost non existent. Hopefully I will be able to heal completely now."

    Apr 22, 2016

    Very uncomfortable for high arches and wide feet

    - Miami

    "I do not like this sneaker at all. I have high arches and it does not give me firm support. I have been getting pains in my knees. Also, i've realised depending on the thickness of my socks i get a lot of pain in my feet and they feel like they are turning numb. The inside is not soft enough. Not worth it in my opinion and i have been using it for about 2 months now because i wanted to break it in before i gave a review. As soon as i can afford it i will be going back to my fresh foam zante."

    Apr 6, 2016


    - Northern California

    "Comfortable shoes--great support. Walked all over Disneyland in them 2 days in a row. My feet did not hurt. I was tired, but not because of ill fitting or uncomfortable shoes. Will definitely buy again. Wish colors were more subdued since I wear them a lot of places and would like them to blend into slacks. By the way I needed wide for my wide feet. New Balance is the one in that respect. Thank you thank you for helping us folks that have true wide feet."

    Apr 5, 2016

    Still the best!

    - Raleigh, NC

    "Oh wow! The 860 remains my favorite sneaker. I have been wearing them since v4 and my only complaint was the occasional runner's toe during v5 use. The v6 feels absolutely perfect. The toe box is wide enough to accommodate my flippers, there is no heel slippage and absolutely no pressure on my toes. Within a week of wearing v6, I purchased another pair. I plan on stocking up because they work that well for me."

    Best all around work out shoe that I have ever found!

    Model 860 - Support & Comfort

    - Worcester, MA

    "My wife runs 5 k, 10k 1/2 and full marathons. SInce the 860 came out she has owned several pair of each version. V2, V3, V4, V5 and now V6. This particular model is AWESOME and she will not wear another."

    great prod. Need more available in women's size 12aa

    "Really like the added cushioning for my aerobic classes."

    Great Shoes

    - Dublin, CA, USA

    "I have purchased (and worn out) pairs and pairs of New Balance shoes, and this recent purchase is an excellent example of why I continue to be a New Balance fan. Great fit, great looking, love the colors, very comfortable and true to size. I highly recommend these shoes!"

    I love these shoes.

    - Liberty Twp, Ohio

    "I love these shoes. This is my second pair of 860's and they are awesome, light and durable."

    This product has everything I need and love in a sneaker!

    - Falmouth, Ma

    "I have a wide foot and bad knees. I have used this particular sneaker for several years and can find no other model or brand that is so perfect for me. I always am looking for the #860 and only purchase this! I was once told by a salesman at a local shoe (and running) store that that model was discontinued! Therefore, I decided to check it out and learned that I could purchase this on line, which saved the day!"

    Mar 5, 2016

    No longer a wider toe box

    - Maryland

    "I loved the 860v5 model. I went through 2 pairs and hundreds of miles of running. They were the only shoe I've ever ran in that didn't pinch my toes or rub hot spots and blisters. I have very wide feet, 8.5 EE. Unfortunately, with the revisions made to the 860v6, they feel more narrow (yes, even in the EE width). My toes felt cramped and I immediately felt rubbing on my toe. Now, they've been returned. I wish the toe box width would have remained the same. Now, I'm going to have to find a new shoe that fits properly:("

    Feb 23, 2016

    My second pair.

    - Indianapolis

    "This is my second pair of the New Balance 860v6. I wasn't ready for my second pair yet, but I wanted to get one to have on hand before the newest model comes out."

    Feb 20, 2016

    Much better than v5!

    - Wilmington, DE

    "I have been running in the New Balance 860 since it was the New Balance 760. Each model is slightly different but has worked for me.... Other than the v5. The v6 is back to being my favorite shoe around and I'm about to buy my second pair!"

    Feb 20, 2016

    Fit great

    - Newburyport, MA

    "These running shoes really feel comfortable, I don't run, but I do walk a lot, and they are great for walking also. And a plus, I love the colors."

    Feb 18, 2016

    Most comfortable sneaker for wide feet

    - Tacoma WA

    "I am from USA and was In Australia for 6 weeks, walking everywhere all the time. It was hot and my feet must have grown in the time I was there!!! I went to Athlete's Foot and was so impressed with the expert service. I bought the NB 860 V6 in a D width and I have been in foot heaven since. I have worn them 8-10 hrs a day and will purchase a second pair for sure. The colors are different in Australia, so I can purchase a new pair in the US color!"

    Feb 16, 2016


    - San Diego CA

    "Love the colors --fit, comfort, and support, too. Good pricing!"

    Feb 12, 2016

    great fit, wears well, colors are fun

    - New Mexico, USA

    "great fit, wears well, colors are fun, feet feel as good at the end of the day as in the beginning"

    Feb 8, 2016

    Not bad but needs work

    - NYC

    "I wish NB would make a stability shoe for low arches , deep,wide toe box and decent cushioning, honestly this has none of those things but out of desperation because none of the sneaker companies are any better I am keeping this shoe. It is cute and looks good on and isn't uncomfortable but it could be better If you have medium arches , and thin feet you will probably love this"

    Jan 23, 2016

    Needs a bit of work

    - NYC

    "A bit less arch support and a bit more toe box width and depth and it would be perfect for low arch, 2X wide width women . So far new balance doesn't make a shoe like that but this is close!"

    Jan 20, 2016

    These sneakers are perfect in every way. The toe box is fairly wide - perfect for me.

    - Syracuse, NY, USA

    "New Balance #860v6 is a perfect fit for me. The toe box is wide, arch support is good, fit is great. I usually wear 8 1/2 but I buy sz 9 sneakers for exercising so that an extra shock-absorbent pad fits in there too. I think this style number may be "last year's" model, so I am glad I could wtill find them at the New Balance website. Thank you for a great sneaker."

    Jan 18, 2016

    Love These Sneakers!

    - Silver Spring, MD, USA

    "I did not need to break in my new 680v6s. The minute I put them on they made my feet feel so comfortable and well supported. No complaints from my fallen arches (I wear orthotics), corns, and bunion. I will be buying another pair of these!"
