One of the things consumers love about New Balance is they give you the ability to pick up your favorite style year after year. It’s nice to have some stability from a brand that in the design department, and your feet will be stable on the court with the New Balance MC806 tennis shoes.

The first type of tech we want to talk about in this shoe is called ROLLBAR. It’s basically a TPU medial or lateral post with a plate built into the shoes towards the rear. It helps minimize foot movement by controlling the motion. This prevents pronating or supination as it reinforces the midsole sidewalls. In layman’s terms, you’re not going to break your ankles trying to cut on the court with the MC806s.

Motion control is nice, but it won’t do you a whole lot of good if the shoes are uncomfortable. That’s one area that has never been an issue for New Balance, and we’re pleased to say these shoes are as comfy as they come. That’s due in part to the ABZORB cushioning system and the C-CAP midsole. Compression-molded EVA is never a bad thing when you want flexibility and support.

As for the style, this shoe isn’t too wild and looks like a traditional tennis shoe. It’s cut at just the right height with a full-grain leather upper, and a reinforced long-wear drag tip on the toe. The herringbone pattern ensures you’ll get plenty of traction, and while there isn’t much venting, most consumers found these shoes to be comfortable and cool.

One interesting feature…

The New Balance MC806 aren’t necessarily expensive, and you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck with these shoes. They come with a cool perk as well if you’re on Medicare as this particular style is approved with the HCPCS code A5500 which means they are “eligible” for Medicare reimbursement. That’s a nice bonus, and so is their Lightning Dry tech which wicks water away from your feet on those hot summer days.

We’re big fans of anything New Balance, and the MC806s are a nice alternative to flashier brands like Nike and Adidas. If you have a narrow or wider foot, you’ve just found your best option as well considering you can purchase these shoes in different widths. There is no extended warranty with these shoes, but you can scoop them up from a 7 to a size 16 from narrow to extra wide.
