1. New Balance Men’s 237, $64.99 (Orig. $79.99)
New Balance describes the men’s 237s as “deceptively simple,” and, based on how popular these are, that’s pretty spot-on. First popularized in the 1970s, these simple, no-frills sneakers feature a comfortable EVA midsole, a herringbone outsole and streamlined upper for a classic launching point and overall fit. You can’t go wrong with these.
2. New Balance Unisex 327, $89.99 (Orig. $99.99)
This running shoe sheds new light on the 1970s as “a time of innovation,” New Balance explains. Its angular reworking of the tried-and-true wedge silhouette paired with its outsize and asymmetrically applied “N” branding make this a classic New Balance staple that signifies the brand’s first major rebranding.
3. New Balance Unisex XC-72 Lunar New Year, $129.99
The unisex XC-72 Lunar New Year is the brand’s newest release. It pushes its classic sources of inspiration even further with what the brand describes as “a time-bending design inspired by the speculative technological optimism of 1970s concept cars.” This one definitely sees New Balance push the envelope with more intentional fashion inspirations.
4. New Balance Unisex XC72, $109.99
Eerily similar to the XC-72 Lunar New Year, this pick features a sleeker and more neutral color palette. It also meets New Balance’s green leaf standard, with an upper made of 50% or more recycled content.
5. New Balance 327 Lunar New Year, $109.99
The Lunar New Year collection 327 helps usher in the Year of the Tiger with its bold design and contrast color palette. Its neutral upper is overlaid with suede and mismatched embellishments at the eyerows.
6. New Balance Unisex 57/40 Lunar New Year, $119.99
The unisex 57/40 Lunar New Year is an update of one of the most popular New Balance shoes of all time: the 574. This revamped style adopts a hybrid concept with a few more advanced design elements, a sleeker silhouette and a slimmer form.
7. New Balance Women’s NB Nergize Sport, $64.99
Giving off what New Balance describes as “the ultimate feminine and sporty vibes,” the affordable NB Nergize Sport is the go-to sleek women’s training shoe that’s easy to move in thanks to its modern low-profile textile upper.
8. New Balance Women’s Fresh Foam Roav, $69.99 (Orig. $84.99)
Lastly, if you’re looking for optimal all-day comfort, the women’s Fresh Foam Roav is the best option to keep you comfortable while on the go. Its plush and soft cushioning, paired with the brand’s Ultra Heel, give the perfectly snug, locked-in fit you need for extensive wear.
