Shoe Review – New Balance 768

Reader Andrea asks “Could you please review the New Balance 767? I have a relatively narrow foot and wear orthotics for my high and collapsing arch.”

I’m not familiar with the NB 767 model, but I am familiar with the 768 which is the next version. My problem with the 768 is it has a very deep toe box even in the narrow width.

On the plus side – it will work with an orthotic and it won’t strangulate your high arch. Just make sure it doesn’t fail the pinch test: https://drshoe.wordpress.com/2008/01/15/pinch-test-shoe-toebox/

If it does, then you might want to try Asics 2130 in medium, since this has a shallower toe box, fits the narrow foot with a high arch nicely and will work with an orthotic.
