Friday Find: New Balance Kicks

The world used to make fun of people who wore running shoes outside of the gym. Sneakers were meant for treadmills and bikes, not for looking cool. But take one look at any street style blog, magazine or celeb smut site and you might notice the plethora of old-school kicks cropping up on every fashion obsessionista. The brand of choice right now? New Balance, of course. With New Balance kicks available in loads of colours and price points, we can all rock this sporty trend from now right through the fall. Pick your fav shoe, then wear 'em with literally everything - shorts, midi skirts, mini skirts, summer dresses, fall dresses, jeans - you name it, anything goes.
