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.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
