Sometimes, it pays to dwell on the past. Indeed, had it now been for the romance of yesteryear, New Balance may never have cast their thoughts back to the old-world 530 – meaning they may never have given us this buttery smooth Reengineered version. But let’s not fixate on what might have been, let’s just bask in the present satisfaction of the trio of modernised masterpieces.
Maintaining the overall look of the OG, the new 530 Reengineered opts for a clean construction with fused panels and a healthy helping of perforation. A technically superior REVlite midsole will do the trick if you’re out there pounding the cobblestones, while the choice of three slick colourways is bound to please even the most discerning fashionista.
The New Balance 530 Reengineered will be available from February 1 at select NB stockists.
