I’ve always loved New Balance sneaks – They’re built to last and completely unassuming, looking just as good with track pants as they do with a smart pair of jeans. These 1500s (£100) come in four different colour schemes, but I’m mad for the green and ecru combo shown here in nubuck and synthetics.
As with all New Balance, they’re designed with the sportsman in mind – supremely supported arches and more padding than Charlie Manson’s cell is the name of the game here. The ace styling is almost a byproduct of the design!
But the best thing about them? The fact that New Balance practice an "Endorsed By No One" policy means that your latest Hip-Hop, wannabe-gangsta superstar won’t be toting them in their new rent-a-loop music video, giving reason to a thousand other idiots to do the same.
