The 1260v6 is a serious game changer for overpronators, delivering premium stability and superb cushioning without sacrificing style. For this new version, New Balance have maintained the support you need while upping the cushioning and upgrading to even better materials. On long runs or short runs, this men's running shoe provides support to moderate overpronators and takes comfort to the next level.
Engineered mesh uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. Perforates in the forefoot increase airflow; promoting a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. Midfoot, TPU overlays hug the arch, reducing in-shoe slippage for a smooth, distraction-free ride. The no-sew details feature for an irritation-free fit; because we recognise how rubbing and blisters can ruin your day. An asymmetrical heel counter cradles the heel and helps to align the foot as it strikes the ground, reaching further down the inside of the shoe to help control overpronation; achieving stability and preventing injury.
A full length Abzorb platform resides underfoot for extreme shock absorption. This foam-based polymer works by dispersing the forces out from the point of impact and reducing the shock that is transferred through the shoe and up into the leg and body (this type of shock is sometimes responsible for heel, ankle, and even back pain). An N2 pod in the heel exists to soften the impact for heavy strikers, and REVlite in the forefoot adds bounce and light weight to the luxurious formulation. The dual density midsole construction means that while the medial side is firmer and helps to curb overpronation, the lateral side cushions and protects; sparing your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving concrete.
T-BEAM support technology functions to provide crucial torsional stability at midstance and prevents the shoe from twisting easily under landing pressure, avoiding injury and further correcting overpronation. A blown rubber outsole completes the 1260v6, supplying another layer of bounce and cushion at toe-off, and grip on every road. For the athletes who crave lightweight stability that doesn't sacrifice cushion, choose the New Balance 1260v6.
