New Balance 844 - The Next Generation of Walking Shoe

An athletic walker's dream, the 844 walking shoe is the next generation of the very popular 843. If you tend to over-pronate (your feet tend to roll significantly inward as you go from heel strike to toe off) the 844 is constructed to limit and slow pronation in the natural walking gait. But there are many other technologies that make this shoe a great pick:

Features include:

  • The ROLLBAR® with Medial & Lateral TPU Posts for ultimate motion control

  • An Entire midsole made of ABZORB® FL provides unique lightweight shock absorption
  • The Walking Strike Path® stabilizes the foot through the natural gait cycle

  • Synthetic/Mesh upper adds lightweight comfort and support

    If you are a dedicated walker and are in search of a shoe to provide unsurpassed motion control, comfort and stability, then take a stroll in the 844.

New Balance 766 vs. 767

A dedicated runner needs a shoe they count on; something to withstand the rough workouts, long miles and hard days ahead. Right now, during the Really Big Blowout Sale at NB Web Express, the New Balance 766 is on sale for $53.99, that is 40% off the original retail price of $89.99.
The 766* was recognized as the Runner's World Editor's Choice for 2005.

The 766 has been replaced by the 767 running shoe. This running shoe was also given accolades of its own as the Runner's World Best Update of 2006.

How are these shoes alike?
Both the 766 and 767 offer a TS2® Transitional Support System, STABILITY WEB® and
N-Durance™ outsole. They also both feature the ACTEVA™ midsole and an ABZORB® heel and forefoot for comfort and shock absorption.

How do they differ?
Two factors separating the 767 from the 766 is the ABZORB® Strobel and N-LOCK™ Midfoot Support. These features accelerate the performance of the shoe and enhance the fit.

Either of these choices are great picks for the dedicated runner. If you are new to the New Balance brand and want to try out something different, take a run in the New Balance 766. If you are looking for an upgrade in your running experience or want to find out what all of the buzz is about, try out the 767. The endurance runner can't go wrong with this series.

Please Note: The Really Big Blowout Sale Ends January 15, 2007.

*The men's and women's 766 running shoe is no longer available at NB Web Express
