Best New Balance shoes for Men with average builds

Over 100 years old and deeply rooted in New England manufacturing, New Balance has evolved to become one of the top running shoe companies on the planet. Based in Boston and proudly producing many products in the US, New Balance today continues to innovate by making high quality running shoes, such as their Fresh Foam and Minimus models.

Having an average build has its advantages: you can fit in most clothes, fly most airplanes, and ride most roller coasters. Running shoes are no different. Some shoes are meant for lighter runners; some for heavier runners. Average build runners can fit in the large bell shape curve in between. But just like it's important to understand your build, it's also important to understand what shoe you need. That's why the following sneakers are meant for runners who are neither heavy nor skinny.
