New Balance 420 rev lite in black

Everyone knows that you can always count on trainer legends New Balance when you’re looking for shoes that look good and feel good. New Balance are famed for their retro classics as much as their performance running shoes, with fans falling for the often throw-back inspired sports styling. From sleek race-ready looks, to the highest levels of ‘wear-with-everything’ versatility, New Balance have really covered it all. In amongst all those numbers though, there are a few absolute stars. Check out our top five New Balance styles of the moment.

1. 420

New Balance 420 Rev Lite in black

The 420 is known as being a style that can stand the test of time. Rated ‘The Best Running Shoe of 1982’ by Runner’s World way back when, the profile has remained a firm favourite, even more so off the the track. The classic 420 has been revamped and prepped for the modern day thanks to a sweet rev-lite midsole. Known to be one of the comfiest bits of tech, rev-lite is paired with the original design to create the ultimate retro runners remade for today. These are slick, super-versatile and seriously comfortable. A real New Balance must-have, and our number one!

2. 247

3. 574

New Balance 574 Special Red

Looking for a classic? You can’t beat the 574. Generally, when most people think about New Balance kicks, these are the ones that come to mind. These would definitely be many people’s first pair of NBs or even first pair of trainers – when wearing sports shoes every day became a thing. They’re an old favourite in the New Balance catalogue.
