Move over Balenciaga’s Triple S

If you’ve been living through self-isolation in fitness gear and your trusted sneakers, then you’re in luck as there’s a brand that has been grabbing our attention.

Sitting comfortably between the classic adidas Stan Smiths and chunky Balenciaga Triple S, the New Balance 990v5 sneakers are ideal for anyone who likes to make a subtle statement.

Originally created in 1982, the sporty look is surprisingly easy to mix with any outfit, from oversized tailoring to feminine dresses. Spotted all over Copenhagen Fashion Week, the 990v5s have a wearability factor that is a little more interesting than the classic kicks, but not as over the top as we have seen previously from the likes of Louis Vuitton and Gucci.

The accessible price point also plays in its favour as does it’s wildly reported comfort factor – the 990v5s specifically feature suede with mesh panels, set atop a cushiony ENCAP® midsole to provide structural ankle support.

 

Designed to hug your feet, New Balance sneakers feel like the next best thing to your bedroom slippers, and let’s be honest look significantly better. Think we just found the perfect shoes to #WFH and take our daily two hour walks in.

See how some of our favourite style stars are rocking their kicks from home.
