50 Gnarly New Balance Sneakers

From Glow In the Dark Runners to Moccasin Basketball Shoes

— January 14, 2013 — Fashion
New Balance sneakers have long been an under the radar staple in the street shoe game. The brand doesn't have the marketing impact of Adidas or the high profile endorsement deals of Nike, but it does have good quality, durable and comfortable shoes that come in a variety of styles.

You can go with the off the wall moccasin basketball shoes if you're looking to bring some heritage to the court that day, or if it's an outdoor night game, try on the glow in the dark New Balance sneakers and your feet will look like streaks.

One of the best things about New Balance sneakers is the plethora of colorways from sandy brown and white to bumble bee yellow with white and black. These shoes are a great alternative to the bigger sneaker brands.
