The New Balance 530
An incredibly popular and trendy model, the New Balance 530 is seen everywhere, from on the feet of our favourite Instagram influencers to the gym to everyday street style.
The New Balance 530 launched in 1992. It was designed as a performance running shoe, made from high-quality materials including leather, suede and mesh.
The simple design of the New Balance 530 makes it a popular favourite amongst sneakerheads. Its retro silhouette and neutral colorways appeal to numerous markets.
Equipped with New Balance technologies including an ENCAP midsole (consisting of an EVA wedge with a supportive rim of polyurethane) and ABZORB heel cushioning (making use of a special rubber called isoprene), and paired with a thick rubber outsole, the New Balance is specifically made for extreme comfort and stability.
Originally released as a running shoe, the New Balance 530 is still the perfect model to take out onto the track due to its comfortable design and durable build.
Although the model is referred to as a ‘Dad’ shoe, it’s just as much for women as it is men! All a typical ‘Dad’ shoe does is bring back 90s nostalgia, with chunky soles, an all-day style and a built-for-comfort design. Many female influencers are currently bringing back a big trend for New Balance 530s!
Upon release, the New Balance 530 retails for around €120.
Generally, the New Balance 530 fits true to size, but if you have wide feet you might want to size up half a size for a bit more room.
