New Balance 817 - Runner's World Summer Shoe Guide

Don't weigh your feet down this summer with heavy materials and stiff soles, try on something more suitable for those hot summer runs. Runner's World presents their Summer Shoe Guide and among the picks is the New Balance 817.

Although the 817 is a great stability running shoe, Runner's World does tell us that it is not a shoe for everyone, their wear testers explain this shoe is "recommended for heavier runners with flat arches looking for maximum motion control."

One really 'cool' thing about the New Balance 817: the updated sock liner is constructed with memory foam cushioning for a more customized fit; sounds pretty comfortable for those long runs.

So, anyone wearing the 817 for the summer? Runner's World says it is a great motion control shoe but how does it perform on the road?
