The New Balance 968 walking shoe features a seam sealed, water resistant leather upper. Dual Density Collar uses both a softer density foam against the foot for cushioning, and a firmer density foam for support. Molded external heel counter offers added rear-foot stability. C-CAP® midsole adds cushioning and support. ABZORB® cushioning in the midfoot gives exceptional shock absorption. STABILITY WEB® delivers midfoot support and reduces the weight of the shoe. Premium insert brings high density, open-cell foam to gently conform to the foot and disperse pressure. Solid rubber, slip resistant outsole provides long-wearing durability. Wt. 14.3 oz.
