New Balance 850 and why it rocks
There are many running shoes in the market right now. Manufacturers cater to a wide variety of budgets and needs, which range from light to heavy, to expert runners. It is very difficult to find a notable pair of shoes from so many available choices. The New Balance 850, nevertheless, manages to stand out in the market with its features. It is an update of the New Balance 859 (the company always had an interesting numbering system for their shoes). Although they call it an update, the New Balance 850 is more of a complete makeover of the 859. It aims to accommodate moderate to severe over-pronators, among other things.
The New Balance 850 women and mens shoe is a highly improved version of its predecessor. It is a high-stability model that has premium cushioning and features the company’s trademark Stabilicore medial posting to provide advanced support and comfort needed for long runs. The shoe offers advanced midfoot support, increased stability and mild pronation control, which, when combined with the external support system, makes sure that the shoe fits snugly around your foot. New Balance 850 also has a synthetic/mesh upper that makes it very light and comfortable.
The New Balance true balance 850 also features forefoot flex grooves that allow extreme flexibility. The 850 also has a blown rubber forefoot for lightweight cushioning. The two above features make the 850 very easy to use and great for running long distances. Additionally, it makes use of the company’s trademark Lightning Dry liners to keep your feet dry and comfortable when training or running. This is very helpful for professional runners who need to run, be it raining or not.
The 850 also makes use of a dual density collar that offers support for cushioning of the foot; it also provides firmer density foam for support. More importantly, it integrates a strobe board for the full length of the shoe to maximize shock absorption. This New Balance true balance version is very helpful when running on country roads that have uneven surfaces. Additionally, it has 360 degrees reflectivity for added safety. This makes the shoe an even better proposition than it is.
The 850 is an interesting model because it focuses especially on the heel and forefoot, offering advanced cushioning capabilities for those regions of the foot. It makes use of Acteva Eva foam as the main midsole component; it provides a stable but cushioned ride that is aimed squarely at medium weight runners. Heavier runners may need a softer shoe. As stated above, the outsole makes use of forefoot flex grooves. They have been extended in order to provide better forefoot flexibility and a more reactive toe liftoff.
New Balance 850 carries some more clever tweaks and design upgrades over its predecessor. While it carries the same mesh as its previous version, the overlays have been redesigned in such a way that it wraps the new heel counter around the midsole. More stability and comfort for the user comes from these changes. Adding to this is the Phantom Liner lining that is built seamlessly in order to reduce chafing and abrasion. On top of this is the lacing, which has been engineered so that it helps prevent untying of shoe laces by accident.
Those with wider feet will love the 850, which is a welcome relief. Runners who have flat feet will absolutely love the New Balance 850 true balance for its features and ingenious use of design to offer stability, support and cushioning without sacrificing on quality. The NB 850 is available from reputable retailers both online and offline. It is available in white with navy and lime green. It is a great choice for medium weight runners. Any 850 review you can find will agree, this shoe rocks.
