Title: New Balance 643 Running
Post by: NC on August 04, 2006, 07:20:08 PM
Hey guys,

About a month ago I ordered some New Balance 643's.  They're a running shoe produced by New Balance.  They incorporate the abzorb pad and don't have a plastic support arch between the heel and the foot.  However, I am dissapointed with their grip.  They have fairly good cushioning as well as support, but the grip is sub-par.  I don't feel that I would reccomend these shoes to anyone for Parkour, but perhaps for a low mileage running shoe.

Thanks

Why didn't you rate them using a scale? Like the one i made up  ;D. Well i wouldnt buy those shoes mostly because the bottom of the shoe looks entirely flat. There are little gaps in between the big flat places but other than that all flat.
