New Balance 860v10 Ladies
Big G Says…
This is our No 1 selling stability shoe. lt is only year 10 of this model, but it feels that we have been recommending these excellent shoes for longer than that. Reliable as ever, not a lot has changed, generally a good thing with a popular shoe.
N.B. stays with its TRUFUSE responsive cushioning carried forward from the v8 and v9 with the medial pillar still in place ensuring the stability necessary to control medium pronation.
So what are the changes? The heel counter which is so critical in a stability shoe has been re-designed, the molded Ultra 3D heel cup has been streamlined to give excellent rearfoot support. The T- beam in the midsole, long a feature in N.B.'s stability models has been removed, but evidently with no loss of structural support because of the additional ground contact. The medial posting has been tweaked to provide a smoother transition of support. The up-graded double jacquard engineered mesh with minimal stitching creates a supportive but comfortable fit. Having said all that, this workhorse will again serve up many miles of happiness just like its predecessors.
This is one of the New Balance models that come in different widths and we stock the standard (B) and the wide (D) so that a perfect fit can be achieved.
Prediction - This will still be our most popular stability model when we come to review the v11 in late 2020.
