Three versatile models arrive from New Balance in the form of two Made in the USA options–a M990 and a Re-Engineered M997–and a Made in the UK M991.5. The M990 has classic New Balance neutral styling in grey with a navy “N” logo, tongue embroidery, and USA logo on the heel over an ABZORB sole for comfort. A Re-Engineered M997 features a grey neoprene sock construction with a suede upper in grey and teal with leather heel and tongue tabs and “N” logo over a REVlite sole. From across the pond, the Made in the UK M991.5 arrives in with bold purple suede over grey mesh with 3M hits and an ENCAP sole.

A more traditional model, the M997, arrives with thick suede across the upper and mesh on the toebox with a mix of grey shades and a pop of bright blue on the heel and teal on the collar for an effective mix of tones over a white ENCAP midsole.

Three clean New Balance models hit the shelves with classic styling from the Massachusetts-based footwear company. One tech-updated 574 model boasts a black suede upper with contrasting pink and turquoise heel tabs over a FreshFoam sole with hits of the same bright hues. A clean “sea salt” textured suede upper hits the traditional 574 with alternating heel tabs in salmon and pale blue with a tan leather liner and wood grain-patterned leather tongue tags. Finally, the “dad shoe” vibe is strong and well-executed with this made in the USA version of the 990 with a monochrome grey suede upper and 3M hits on the tongue, heel, toe, and N logo.

A second offering tones it down a bit, moving the purple to the lining and a tiny hit on the midsole and keeping the multi-colored embroidery on an otherwise black and white upper.
