The New Balance 680 running shoe is available in both men's and women's styles. The shoe combines technical details such as flexible cushioning with cosmetic features, making the shoe functional and attractive.

Type

The New Balance 680 running shoe provides a comfortable upper shoe combined with patented materials for heel, forefoot, mid-foot and mid-sole for extra cushioning, durability and support.

Design

Patented ABZORB® in the heel and forefoot offer extra cushioning, making for greater shock absorption. Synthetic leather and mesh make up the upper shoe while the N-Durance® rubber sole is designed for endurance.

Men's shoe colors are red, white and gray, and the women's come in either a blue, silver and white combination or a gray and purple style. Reflective details add to the cosmetic appeal of this shoe. The heel and forefoot width, instep height and toe box depth of all 680 models are standard, per New Balance's official website.

Price

New Balance 680 running shoes are selling at online auction sites such as eBay and at online retailers such as Overstock. As of September 2010, a women's pair cost about $41.99.
