Comments about New Balance 856 WN Men:

This is at least the sixth pair of 856 I've owned, and before them the predecessors back to 852, IIRC. The 856 was the first of this model line that was offered in both white and black, and I wear the blacks for "dress" occasions. I'm distressed to see that the 856 is discontinued; I ordered three more pairs on closeout. These are my everyday shoes, and I go through a pair about every 8-12 months, and keep the used ones for rough work around the house. I've always appreciated the flexible fabric section joining the toe box and the instep, as I have a special need for flexibility in that area; the successor model 857 seems to lack this construction. I only hope that the 857 can equal the 856!

      Comments about New Balance 856 WN Men:

      I wear these daily for walks and work outs. Excellent build quality,comfortable, good traction, durable construction.

      If you pronate or supinate you may want to look at a different new balance shoe or supplement the arch with proper pads.

            The New Balance 856 WN Men is a great walking shoe according to the reviews.

            A:

            Since this shoe is a cross trainer, it is versatile enough for a variety of activities, including some walking. It is perfect as an "everyday" shoe or cross trainer, but if you specifically plan on doing a lot of walking you may be better served to invest in either a specialized walking shoe or even a running shoe.

        • About New Balance
        New Balance has grown to be one of the largest manufacturers of running shoes and they've done this without expensive advertising campaigns. New Balance knows that there is no better press than positive word-of-mouth. New Balance began as an arch support company, but in 1960, they designed the first running shoe with a ripple sole and the first running shoe that came in varying widths. It didn't take long before New Balance running shoes were used by college track teams all over the country. Today, New Balance makes their shoes available in more widths than almost any other company and that means that there's a New Balance that can fit nearly any foot. Although they started by making running shoes, New Balance tennis shoes are an industry staple and are loved by recreational and serious players. New Balance also makes fine running and tennis apparel, as well as a variety of socks and other sporting accessories.
