This model may still be available on clearance. But we've reviewed a newer version since we published this.
This is a super shoe it reminds you of softly cushioned classics like the old Adidas Supernova. Theres absolutely nothing complicated about it. It has small rear- and forefoot Abzorb cushioning pads, a simple midfoot stability shank, and a nice, light upper with a snug midfoot and rearfoot, and a broad, roomy forefoot.
In terms of weight and ride, it sits in between the deeply cushioned 879, and the 326g performance-oriented 830. Its broader and softer than the 830, which gives it a more relaxed feel that will appeal to longer-distance or less speed-oriented runners (dont worry, though its not pillowy).
Theres not much point in writing complicated evaluations of this shoe its a simple, softly cushioned gem in the mould of New Balances neutral performance trainers. Its broad and supportive, though its not built for anyone with stability problems.
