The New Balance WX856 is a classic workout essential, perfect for the gym or outdoors. This women's training shoe features a leather upper with a seamless Phantom Liner for chafe-free comfort. ENCAP® cushioning in the midsole enhances support and durability. The non-marking rubber outsole of the New Balance 856 athletic shoe offers reliable traction.
I walk in a rural area with hills so I needed a shoe with support in both the heel and toe area. I have a wide foot and always have problems finding a shoe that fits and supports. Much to my surprise I didn't even have to "wear them in". Just slipped them on and they fit perfectly.
I wanted this shoe for my many exercise classes, including zumba and step and cycling. Found that the shoe is comfortable, but my foot slides around in it when working out. If you try to adjust it to tighten it, it is then too tight at the mid foot and my foot becomes numb. Find myself adjusting the shoe all through the class and can't seem to get it right.
These sneakers are good for cushioning impact when I workout in my basement with home videos. I have 3/4 inch rubber puzzle mats over concrete, and I need good heavy duty cushioning in my sneakers. This is my second pair and they really serve the purpose well. They are heavy with my orthodics inside but I feel they protect my knees, feet and back, so I'll deal with that. And they are made in the USA!!
