The Best Sneakers and Apparel to Shop at New Balance
We found the coolest footwear and apparel selections you can shop right now with just a few clicks.
1. New Balance Reflective Impact Run Winter Jacket
Winter training calls for outer layers that can actually perform. Luckily, this Reflective Impact Run Winter Jacket was born for the job, thanks to a cozy construction and visible-at-night accents to keep you safe on any route. It can easily shield you from the cold wind gusts and unpredictable winter weather, and you can easily adjust your smartwatch on-the-go with a touchscreen-friendly cuff design without pulling up your sleeve.
2. New Balance Heathertech Tee
Meet your new go-to gym tee. The New Balance Heathertech is a sleek high-tech top that can withstand everything from a sweaty trail run to your heated yoga class. That’s all thanks to the brand’s NB DRY fabric technology that helps wick away your sweat and keep you dry and feeling fresh.
3. New Balance Accelerate Long Sleeve
If you’re planning on going for a cold-weather run anytime in the near future, you’ll need a baselayer to get you through it. This long-sleeved Accelerate tee will do the trick, complete with a moisture-wicking NB DRY fabric and small reflective details for when it’s your only layer.
4. New Balance Q Speed Sherpa Pullover
On days when you don’t quite need a jacket, but a tee just won’t do, go for this lightweight Q Speed pullover. The NB HEAT tech pulls double duty by locking in heat while wicking away excess moisture when you’re running. Water-resistant sherpa fabric on the upper section, meantime, ensures you’re staying comfortable to the very last mile.
5. New Balance Q Speed Jogger
When you’re looking for pants to wear to a workout or on a run, you want a pair that can wick away sweat and keep you warm at the same time. That’s exactly what these Q Speed Joggers achieve, thanks to the built-in NB DRY tech and their cozy fleece fabric. They’re designed with a tapered fit so they won’t get in the way on your run. But the best part is that they’re just as fit for an afternoon on the couch, too.
6. New Balance Fresh Foam X 860v12 Shoes
Runners looking for that sweet spot between a comfortable pair of sneakers and extra support will want to lace up these Fresh Foam X 860v12s. Thanks to New Balance’s lightweight Fresh Foam cushioning and built-in stability, these kicks can get you through any training session or race. Plus, they even feature reflective details throughout to keep you visible on early-morning or late-night jogs.
7. New Balance 327 Sneakers
Retro Seventies style has never looked more modern. These New Balance 327 sneakers take inspiration from running shoe designs from the past and run with a host of new updates. They come with serious traction thanks to a lugged outsole that takes its cues from trail running kicks, along with a suede, mesh upper and oversize New Balance logo.
8. New Balance 574 Sneakers
For the guy who has a closet overflowing with running shoes, get him these casual 574s. Because of their cushioning and versatile, monochromatic Dad Sneaker style, he’ll love them for running errands, work and everything in between. After all, New Balance doesn’t call them the “go-anywhere” sneakers for nothing. Available in standard, wide and extra-wide sizing.
9. New Balance Core Performance Small Duffel
A piece of luggage is always a good gift idea. Whether they’re taking it to the gym, to class or just commuting to work, this small New Balance duffel is a pack they can use for everything. There are convenient carrying handles, a hook to hang it up in a locker, along with a shoulder strap for longer hauls. The top of the bag fully unzips for easy access. Available in both black and red.
10. New Balance Heatloft Athletic Jacket
Whether you’re heading to the gym before the sun’s up or grabbing coffee on the weekend, this Heatloft Athletic Jacket is hard to top. Its stylish quilted material looks sophisticated, but it’s still the sweat-wicking, warm jacket you’ll want for any activity. New Balance added some length for extra warmth, while a handful of hidden pockets make it easy to store your phone, wallet and keys.
