The Find: The Best Sneakers

Apr 2, 2024

There I was, minding my own business, standing in an airport lounge waiting for a cocktail, when a woman in the most fabulous sneakers appeared. They had a cool vintage look that instantly caught my eye. They looked so chic, that I instantly forgave them for being New Balances, and rushed to the Internet to purchase them. And now, every time I wear them, someone stops to ask where I got them.

So let me tell you everything.

The New Balance 327s in the black/white/gum sole color way were so hard to find that I had to purchase mine on StockX.  But thanks to Anthropologie, they are in stock in sizes 5-11 for $100.

The sneakers just look cool.  They’re relaxed.  They’re a little unique with the raised gum sole extending back onto the heel, and the black and white is perfection with leggings.  I adore them.  Can’t get enough.  

Oh, and they’re stupid comfortable.  Why?  Because they’re so light.  I like my leather Nikes, but wearing these makes the Jordans feel impossibly heavy.  These sneakers look chunky, but they are light as a feather — a gift to those of us who like to feel like we’re wearing no shoes at all.  

Seriously, don’t miss these.  And if you want a lighter color way for summer, try these.

    I’ve gotten SO into sneakers in my late 30s. I used to literally own one pair of Coach outlet sneakers that I finally ditched a few years ago. Now I have at least five pairs, plus like, an actual running sneaker. Who am I?!

    Love these. I’m addicted, simply addicted, to the Prague style Kiziks.

    I discovered the nb 327s a year and half ago, and I own a few pairs now. I add my own custom insert in them too! They seem to go with so many outfits, and I get stopped and asked about them when I’m out and about the city.

    FYI – looks like at least some of these sizes won’t ship until July! I found them at Dick’s for the same price and ready to ship now.

Shoe Week: One Last Summer Shoe

It’s been a fun week talking about shoes. A former co-worker texted me yesterday and asked what shoe I would buy, if I were only going to buy one shoe for summer. And, of course, I told her that I have two suggestions. Her response: “Typical.”
