The NB 847v2 is the successor of the New Balance 847, one of the most popular motion control shoes of this brand. I'm a fan of the color combinations, you will have no problems wearing this shoe with a casual street outfit. Some users report problems with the sizing, so make sure to order multiple different sizes.

When we go out to buy a branded shoe, we generally go for the ones which are endorsed by famous celebrities and flashed on television screens hundred times a day. But when athletes look for a shoe that can give them total comfort along with 100% performance, they inevitably opt for New Balance shoes. New Balance never spends money on roping in big names to endorse their products.

Instead they do what few other shoe companies have done in the past. They focus on research and development to come up with better technologies for the athlete’s feet.
