Over the last two years, New Balance sneakers have made a huge comeback and now these affordable and stylish sneakers are one of the hottest brands to buy. 

Whether you’re looking to buy your first pair or add to your collections, here are the best New Balance shoes to buy this year.

New Balance 550

On the top of our list are the New Balance 550s. Bringing the original 1989 release back into the modern era with a collaboration with Aimé Leon Dore, the new 550s revive the iconic low-cut silhouette. They’ve taken a slice of basketball history and brought it into the present.

White Green

The New Balance 550 White Green are straight out of the 1989s. A white leather top, microperforated panelling and a tonal suede overlay make this revival a retro classic.  And of course, don’t forget the raised N Logo and enlarged tongue stamped with the brand’s ‘New Balance 550’ in green.  

Navy Blue

Keeping the two-tone colour palette that characterised the 1989 release, the New Balance 550 Navy Blue adds a touch of subtle class to the shoes. 

Keeping the white top and perforated panelling, the retro green has been replaced with an understated navy blue. Perfect for those that don’t like to shout about their cool. 

UNC White University Blue

Paying homage to the iconic oxford colour palette, the New Balance UNC White University Blues are your chance to wear a piece of memorabilia. 

Sticking with the two-tone, these classic sneakers have touches of powder blue highlighting every aspect, giving them a subtle but vibrant look. 

White Purple

For those that want their sneakers to stand out, the New Balance 550 White Purple is the perfect option. The white leather top is accented with grey suede overlays and contrasted with violet for detailing that draws the eyes. 

New Balance 2002R Protection Pack 

Originally released in 2021, the New Balance 2002R Protection Pack was an immediate sensation. 

The Sea Salt, Rain Cloud and Phantom launched the new series and their re-imagination of the classic lifestyle shoe is the perfect example of what makes New Balance such a sought-after brand in 2023. 

The incredible success of the release made them fly off the shelves and they were soon at a premium. In the wake of this success, New Balance has given fans a whole range of options to sate their hunger.

Rain Cloud

The first of the Protection Pack to launch in 2021, the New Balance 2002R Rain Cloud is an instant classic that reinvents the lifestyle runner. 

With the now signature raw-edged suede overlays giving it a deconstructed appearance, the Rain Cloud uses greyscale to make an understated but bold statement.

Sea Salt

Featuring the signature distressed and deconstructed appearance, the New Balance 2022R Protection Pack Sea Salt continues to be a symbol of long-lasting footwear. 

White leather forefoot, quarter panel and heel are overlayed with degraded suede all over the shoe. It’s got a pristine finish that manages to stand out without demanding attention.


The last of the original Protection Pack to launch, the New Balance 2002R Phantom finishes off the neutral colourway made by the release. 

Monochrome black all over and featuring the distinct raw-edged suede overlays on the upper makes this a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe.

Dark Navy

Dropping a year after the original Protection Pack, the New Balance 2002R Protection Pack Dark Navy is part of the new wave that fans have been desperate for. 

The reinvented lifestyle runner features a blue mesh upper with navy suede overlays in the ragged style of the protection pack. 

New Balance 9060 Joe Freshgood Inside Voices Penny Cookie Pink 

One of the many collaborations that New Balance has shared with Joe Freshgood, the 9060 Inside Voices Penny Cookie Pink features his signature reinvention of the New Balance Silhouette. 

Following the successful launch of the Outside Clothes collaboration in 2021, Freshgood continued to turn heads with the Inside Voices line that followed. Taking the classic 990 series from the early 2000s, JF brought them into the present with what has now become his signature boldness. Exaggerating the iconic silhouette into the 9060 line. 

The Penny Cookie Pink has a quilted textile inside, pink mesh and peach suede overlays for a fresh look that screams summer. 

New Balance 580 New Era (Special Box) 

When people think of New Balance, the 580 comes to mind. Originally released in 1996, the silhouette is one of their most popular. To commemorate the iconic shoe’s 20th birthday, New Balance collaborated with New Era to celebrate its success. 

The classic monochromatic has been highlighted with reflective accents on the heel and a glow-in-the-dark outsole. All in high-quality nubuck and 100% classic. 

To give it the celebration it deserves, New Balance and New Era went all out with the special box. A branded black box in a duel drawer style. In the bottom drawer, you can find your new 580s and in the top, you can find a New Era strapback hat. 

New Balance 57/40 BAPE Grey

Hitting the shops in the middle of 2022, and in collaboration with the incredibly popular brand A Bathing Ape, the New Balance 57/40 got a new and improved look. The two brands revamped the iconic 574 silhouette and gave it the signature BAPE style. 

The first to hit the shelves was the 57/40 Grey from the Training Camp collection. A grey mesh upper, black suede overlays and a large N with a camouflage pattern feature in this contemporary take. On the heel are the classic spikes from BAPE, reminiscent of their shark hoodie. All with a stylish design meant to show off.


Hit the streets in 2023 in style with a fresh set of New Balance and combine comfort with fashion.
