When the first pair of New Balance 530 sneakers landed on the scene in 1992, they immediately set themselves apart thanks to a simple yet appealing silhouette, complete with a breathable mesh upper. Positioned as the latest must-have running shoes, the NB 530 had a bunch of exciting features, not least of which were the ENCAP midsole and ABZORB heel cushioning. These innovations, combined with an outsole made of thick rubber, gave the trainers their noticeable bounce and cemented the NB 530s as clear frontrunners in the market of performance footwear.
The Design of the NB 530
With modern trends now accepting sporty trainers as a normal part of the everyday outfit, this New Balance collection has become more widely adopted—not just by athletes but also by regular sneakerheads. The retro styling of the 530s lends itself to what is considered trendy, putting its best foot forward with a design that’s simple but unique, with a distinctive panelled aesthetic. This look is achieved using several materials: mesh (as already mentioned), suede, and leather.
