new balance 1400 in blue sky

i’m a big fan of anything new balance and the 1400s are some of my favorites.  when i saw the new colorways released by j. crew last month, i jumped on the blue sky ones immediately.  initially, they sent me the wrong order which is sort of becoming a thing with me.  the correct 1400s arrived on my doorstep yesterday afternoon and i couldn’t be more pleased.  they’re extremely comfortable, made in america, and look phenomenal (even my shotty camera work can’t hold them down).  you can buy your own pair here.

need new sneakers

it’s time for some new kicks.  besides a couple pairs of vans (slip-ons & authentics), the only sneakers i’ve been wearing lately are my waxed tretorns from the summer.  shame on me for not having more options.  that’s what happens when you spend the last six months upgrading your dress shoes.  i’ve found a few choices below.  let me know which pair you like or if you have any other suggestions.

meet the new balance for j. crew collection

i finally ordered my new balance for j.crew kicks last week.  they shipped on friday.  i’ll post some pics and fit answers as soon as they come in.  i know you’re looking forward to that.  in the meantime, watch this short video on the collaboration.  it’s great to see how much craftsmanship new balance puts into their shoes.

new arrivals

the new balance for j. crew collab is now available and not a moment too soon cause tomorrow is payday.  god bless the 1st and the 15th.

update: i spoke to a gentleman at j. crew today that said they fit true to size.  order accordingly.

new balance 1400 for j. crew

finally!  i’ve been waiting to see these ever since they were announced.  they look fantastic.  i will be buying both colorways.  i used to be somewhat of a new balance collector.  i’ve owned about 50 pairs in the last 10 years.  i realize that’s ridiculous, but the secondary market for tennis shoes on ebay is pretty stellar.  there’s no drop date or retail price for these yet, but i’ll keep you posted.  give them to me now.
