Get low, light, and fast for ultimate performance in the New Balance 851. This low-profile tennis shoe was specially engineered for a close-to-the-ground ride that makes it a smash on match days.
Upper: Synthetic and mesh upper provide a sleek, comfortable fit without adding bulk. Long wearing drag tip enhances durability for toe draggers. Molded "N" logo adds stylish flair. Padded tongue and heel collar for additional comfort.
Midsole: Low profile midsole puts your foot close to the ground for smooth, speedy footwork. ABZORB®, New Balance's top of the line foam, provides a superior blend of cushioning and compression set features with DuPont™ Engage® and isoprene rubber for the ultimate ride. ACTEVA® ULTRA LITE is 32% lighter than standard midsole foam and provides optimal compression set features thanks to DuPont™ Elvaloy®. A lightweight, nylon shank improves the midfoot integrity of the shoe and helps prevent torsion. PL-1 performance last. Removable, perforated insert enhances comfort.
Outsole: NDurance rubber compound is used for maximum durability in high wear areas. Herringbone tread pattern provides traction on a variety of court surfaces. Non-marking outsole won't damage court- or household-surfaces.
