Newey New Balance Neon Newness at JD Sports!

Monday 22 September 2014

Even though fashion faves Pharrell and Jessica Alba took them on an age ago, it's taken me a while to get into the whole New Balance trend. At first I thought I couldn't work them into my current wardrobe because the colourways were a bit out there, but the more I saw them on girls the more I grew to really like them! I think the trick is to not actually try to work them into your wardrobe, they're just supposed to be your go to throw on trainers regardless of what you are wearing, for effortless style.

This week I got my paws on the New Balance 574 Neon Pack Grey/Orange (£70) from JD Sports, a style inspired by neon graphics and the bright lights of the city and also available in black/pink. Grey and neon is always a good time to me, it's one of my fave combinations and these trainers totally prove why. To the outfit! . . . 

Outfit: New Balance 574 trainers - c/o JD Sports, Jeans - Wildfox, Tshirt - Wildfox, Jacket - Pull & Bear, Bag - Grafea.

Ahhhhhh, I LOVE these! They're so bouncy and comfortable, totally unlike any other trainers that I have outside of my 'gym' Nikes (I couldn't even write that with a straight face). If you're wondering, they're true to size, I'm a 5 and they feel perfecto :)

I toyed with the idea of wearing them with my leather joggers, but eventually decided to see how they faired with a standard jeans and leather jacket outfit, i.e. no sportswear or sports luxe in sight. I personally think they look awesome, and now I get it. Let's face it, 9200 fashion girls couldn't be wrong, shame on me for doubting!

The upper is a yummy fuzzy textile, it looks like suede but is more flexible on the foot. I also can't get enough of the neon laces, takes me back to being an 80's kid! These are definitely eyecatching and colourful, but not tacky - hurrah!

If you're on the fence about New Balance I am definitely on the 'For' side pulling you over. I wouldn't spend too much time thinking about how they will fit in with your clothes, just choose the colours you love and they'll fit themselves in! I'm also a big fan of the New Balance 410's with a leopard print textile upper, and at just £55 from JD I think they are next on my list.

  2. I've been thinking of getting a pair of trainers - mainly because I need a pair I can run around in! Struggling to pick between New Balance and Adidas... They look great!

    Agreed, they are a great practical option to throw on with any outfit!
    Adore the neon/grey colourway, also think they would go perfect with the leather joggers :D
