New Balance Women’s WX711 Cross-Training Shoe Review
Pros: Flexible, comfortable, precise fit, good traction, supportive, stable, well padded, breathable
Cons: Not enough arch and sole support for some, especially those with high arches
Best Uses: Everyday training, lightweight walking, running, jazz exercise, indoor boot camps
New Balance believes in quality products and name is synonymous with the best athletic shoes you can buy. We’re happy to report that the WX711 is no different. It’s a great all-round cross-training shoe at an affordable price. Top-quality athletic shoe? Reasonable price-tag? Love it!
New Balance has, however, departed from New Balance tradition, as it goes for a less bulky looking appearance with a lower cut. Nevertheless, it has all the great features that we’ve come to expect from New Balance, as well as some new ones.

What People are Saying about the New Balance 711 Cross-Trainer
“I am a big fan of New Balance and have been wearing their shoes for years. I love that these ones are low-cut, not bulky looking and are very lightweight. They feel very comfortable, even during a long workout, mainly due to the excellent heel cushion. My only complaint is the lack of arch support, so much so that I’m considering putting my orthotics into them.”
“I haven’t been using them for very long, but for now, I LOVE the New Balance 711 cross-trainers. I use them for workouts at the gym, and the occasional jog. The things I love are how light they are, their flexibility and also the decent amount of support that they provide. I love the fit with the wide option.”
“They don’t really have a ton of support, but the insole is very soft and squishy and they feel very comfortable on my feet. I love how breathable they are too.”
New Balance 711 Comfort
Even for those who have been choosing New Balance for years, the WX711 packs a few surprises. Made from mesh fabric, it comes with a fantastic heel cushion that makes the shoe so comfortable. In fact, the heels have extra padding and the cushioning makes this a very comfortable cross-training shoe.
Fitting and Traction of the WX711
With the forefoot flex groove, Cush+ midsole, and overlays made of thin film, you get a perfect, comfortable fit. It also comes fitted with a rolled collar, plus an impressive level of traction thanks to the outsole made of durable rubber.
