The Best New Balance Releases of 2021

The Best New Balances of 2021

Having a banner year is hard enough, but having two banner years in a row is damn near impossible. That's why New Balance's 2021 was so impressive – not only did it follow a stunning 2020 campaign, it was arguably even better. Classic silhouettes like the 990v3 and 991 surged back onto the market, collaborative partners both fresh and familiar enhanced the brand's scope of influence by re-working beloved models and New Balance's overall storytelling was second to none.

Hashing so many good releases down to 10 from an initial list of 30 was akin to deciding which of our teeth we'd like pulled, but after plenty of pain and hand-wringing, we were able to get it done. Below, we present to you the 10 best New Balance sneakers of 2021.
