SH NEW M530SPB
Risks of the Non-Style Kind
Are these New Balance 530s just a struggle, borderline knockoff version of last year’s Colette x New Balance 580s? Pretty much. Am I mad about that? Not in the least. I’ve been on the hunt for sneakers that will scratch the itch that the Colette ones started. For me that pretty much means anything that has Klein blue accents on a neutral base. Though, calling this one an accent is a bit of a stretch considering it covers something like 60% of the shoe completely, but oh well. Also, the 530 is a good silhouette because it is very chunky, and as you all should know by now, the chunkier a New Balance is the better. Is it possible that if I get these I’ll just constantly feel a deep regret for not having the legit Colette sneakers? Maybe, but that’s a risk I’m willing to take.
