New Balance Men's 250 Sneaker
About this deal
Our expansive collection of New Balance clothing, footwear and accessories is designed to cater to absolutely everyone. Whether you’re looking for serious sporting gear for pro athletes or fashion forward leisurewear to complete your latest look, there’s plenty to explore in the New Balance men’s and the New Balance women’scollections. If you have a proven case of flat feet, complemented by a noticeable inward rolling of the foot (see image below), we recommend NB’s motion control walking shoes. New Balance heritage isn’t just about decades-old craftsmanship, it’s also a celebration of timeless style. Classic New Balance designs have proved to be ageless, but we never stop trying to innovate and take the New Balance aesthetic forward with daring new styles and exciting collaborations.
As we went at it for miles in the New Balance Fresh Foam X 1080 v12, we found our strides noticeably balanced. We measured its midsole to be 113.8 mm at the forefoot and 89.1 mm at the heel. These figures are significantly wider than that of the average walking shoe at 107.5 mm and 85.2 mm, respectively - providing a nice and stable platform for feet. Its upper is also pleasantly roomy! Its forefoot width of 97.0 mm provides more than enough room for wide and swollen feet. However, the choice will depend on your personal preferences in footwear. Here is how these three categories differ: Apart from the dedicated walking shoes, your daily walking needs may also be satisfied by New Balance sneakers and running shoes.Big focus on arch support. Originally started as an arch support manufacturer, the brand has always taken flat feet and overpronation seriously. If in doubt, see the illustration below to guide you. You can also learn more about pronation and arch support in our meta-analysis of 150+ studies on the topic.
For us, the best New Balance walking shoe with arch support should be able to provide a consistently stable ride without any hiccups. After testing the New Balance Fresh Foam 860 v12 in our lab and on foot, we found it to be beyond reliable - having tons of features that put in the work day in and day out. What blew us away was its stability features, its satisfyingly firm cushioning, and its rain-or-shine grip. We also enjoyed the springs on each of our steps in v4. We investigated more and discovered that the midsole is 15.5 HA soft. Compared to the average, this is 36.2% softer, giving us a pillowy platform without the unwanted squish. Even though v4’s super soft, we are still unfazed by the thought of unsteadiness because we measured the base widths at 119.5 mm in the forefoot and 102.1 mm in the heel. They are 5.8% and 13.3% wider than the averages, suggesting stable rides. Some of our notable models include the fresh 247 and our legendary collection of 574 trainers. Each model we design has its own unique style, but always with the recognisable New Balance finishing touches and industry-leading technical detail. For a lifestyle shoe that excels in durability and comfort, go for the classic New Balance 990, which has a thirty-year legacy, and is known for its advanced cushioning and stability. Part of our Made in US range, the shoes are manufactured using the finest craftmanship, and built out of lightweight pigskin leather. New Balance: The historyWhat’s so special about New Balance? Perhaps the most important thing - the characteristic we aim to preserve in everything we do – is heritage. Independent since 1906, we empower people through sport and craftmanship to create positive change in communities around the world. Every New Balance trainer and item of New Balance clothing is the product of time-honoured principles that will never fail to stand the test of time.
In our comprehensive evaluation of NB walking shoes, 530 is without equal when it comes to being retro. It has classic written all over it and we have no complaints as it’s the reason why we looked good on our walks. This might be retro, but the level of foot satisfaction it gave us never felt outmoded.Many of our most enduring styles prove that performance-focused design and stylish aesthetics don’t have to be mutually exclusive. One of the most iconic New Balance running shoes, the famous 990, was designed in the early 80s to a brief that demanded the best running shoe on the market. Four decades later the 990 is more popular than ever and widely regarded as both a first-class running shoe and a modern design classic. That’s New Balance heritage.
