The New Balance 870 v4 is a standard support running shoe best suited for daily training and a moderate overpronated foot motion.


The New Balance 870 v4 offers stability and cushioning for everyday training in a lightweight package.  A plush ABZORB crash pad cushions the foot upon heelstrike, transitioning into a responsive REVlite midsole with medial posting to put some spring in your step while combating overpronation.  Seamless overlays on the upper provide a secure fit, and a durable carbon rubber outsole allows you to put in high mileage on the roads.
