The heel counter features UltraHeel technology. The data of many runners has been collected to design the tuned and precisely shaped UltraHeel heel counter. Softer than ever, it adapts to your heel and holds it, while providing soft comfort.
Due to its ultra-soft and lightweight feel New Balance’s Fresh Foam cushioning has become extremely popular. That is the main reason New Balance implemented it in this latest version of 860. It also adapts to your foot and offers you a smooth ride regardless of your pace.
The unchanged, well functioning medial post in the midsole of 860v11 prevents excessive inward movement of your arch (over-pronation) to keep your body in straight alignment, and to help reduce any discomfort.
The redesigned engineered mesh upper is softer and more durable, while providing breathability and support.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE FOR RUNNING SHOES
Your running shoe size will generally be 1 to 1.5 sizes bigger than your regular (‘dress’) shoe size. Bear in mind also that one foot can be slightly bigger than the other.
First, kick your foot back into the heel of each shoe before checking how much space is left at the front. When standing in each shoe with your full weight on the foot, it’s best to have between half and a full thumb's width between the end of the longest toe and the end of the shoe.
When standing in the shoe, it’s best to have a little wiggle room for the toes, but the back of heel should still feel nicely secure.
Sprint spikes are best when a close fit. Distance spikes best when up to a half a thumb's width between the end of the longest toe and the end of the shoe.
