The New Balance 860v4 has been redesigned, and reconsidered. It has had anoticeable change in midole composition to make it softer and more supportive than before, by making it much clser to a full ground contact. However, it is fairly chunky, and has relatively wide heels.
The New Balance 860v4 fils a niche, and offers a little spport for slight over-pronators, however seems to focus on those who are heavier or have wider feet. The heel unit is wide, and a lot of people (myself included) will feel lost in it. The forefoot though has plenty of space, without feeling too big. For those who fit the job description, these will be great. We give it an 8 out of 10.
