New Balance Collection
The combination of comfort and attraction is hard to discover. Helplessly scanning the high street for a running shoe which possesses both traits will leave you tired and aggravated.
We must all come to terms with the fact that a pair of running shoes will never be deemed acceptable to show off when it comes to going out in the evening. However, it still leaves many of us wondering why do so many big name sporting brands never succeed in finding the holy grail; the perfect mixture of performance and good looks?
Not long ago, New Balance, the American footwear powerhouse, answered the cries of many trainer obsessed spenders. Their new triplet collection provides contemporary designs with familiar traditional features.
A firm favourite at FashionBeans is the 565 Black Classic Suede Shoes – which I will be personally investing in very soon. The technical jargon includes an IMEVA (injection-moulded EVA foam) midsole for firm and flexible cushioning, a moulded rubber outsole and of course premium suede leather.
While most high street fashion stores are running out of Converse All Stars and Vans Authentics, purchasing a pair of New Balance will strengthen your name as a trend setter and keep you well away from the mainstream hype.
As far as running goes, I would much prefer to jog through my local park in a pair of 565 than the uncomfortable and ever so common Converse Hi-Tops.
