anyone actual rock new balances?


Ive owned a pair for about 5 years and Ive only worn them like twice. They look just like these: same color

I have a lot of grey shirts that would match, and of course you could rock a black shirt as well

    New Balance is some Baltimore shit niggas wear every color here. But you cant rock them ugly shits that you posted they gotta be 498's, 993's, or 992's! Even the 587's are cool.

    Yeah I remember i was in Miami in 09' and a DC chick came up to me and asked if i was from Baltimore or DC and i asked her how did she know and she said cuz those two cities always wear NB.

    Idk when DC started wearing them but niggas been rocking them up here since the gray 992's dropped. I think it started from the jails foreal cuz every nigga over the jail used to want a pair of the Gray 992's.

    Most likely the shit started at the sametime, DC only 20-30 min down 95.

    Those are for running and working out type shit.

    The casual type NB's are dope, I put em up there with low top shell toes and more comfortable.

    Those walking shoes bruh

    None of those pictured are really good running shoes, more for walking/chilling...something to throw on with any outfit

    Yo, am I the only one that feels like shoes like New Balances and Air Maxxes should only be worn while running/playing sports?

    574's and 1400's are the only decent looking ones.

    yeah because they only company that consistently makes shoes in my width...4e-6e so Its the only athletic shoe I wear..they got a casual line under the dunham name im bout to start rocking..the shoes looks just as good as any other brand and to me its more about comfort than whats hot.

    I agree with the bolded, I think I'm one of the minority who think Foams and The Jordan Cool Greys are ugly. Still wouldn't wear New Balances outside a gym though

    I've worn 991/2/3's since the mid-90s and probably always will. Most comfortable shoes around. 580s are cool too.

    Not a big fan of 574's but I like the marketing approach NB is taking here -- http://t.co/SzCLrmc. Plus, most cats would buy the 574 since it's one of the cheaper models. Customize it and go knowing nobody else has those joints.
