New Balance 530 – a real 90’s runner

New Balance may be an old hand in the sneaker business, but they always manage to hit the nerve of the current times. They are always looking for the best performance – but of course not without a really cool look. With the relaunch of the NB 530, the Americans followed up on the huge success of the New Balance 550 in 2014: The 90’s runner with the chunky dad-style sole is an absolute favorite alongside the classic sneaker models. Influencers and stars have made a fashion statement with it and turned the look into a must-have.

The New Balance 530 is now available in countless colorways and styles, but has lost none of its retro charm from the nineties. The model, which was originally released as a running shoe, not only scores with a sporty look, but also has a lot going for it technically. What’s behind this model and what special features await you, we reveal in this article. 

From running shoe to dad style sneaker

The NB 530 was released in the early nineties as a classic running shoe. And it was precisely as such that it was initially appreciated by all runners, because it performed as a top model with a lot of technical innovations that are continuously developed further. Thus, the 530 is another representative of the New Balance philosophy: to equip athletes with the best tools and to always remain true to their own values.

After being packed away in New Balance‘s archives for a few years and barely in production, the 530 made a killer relaunch in 2014. Since then, the hype on this silhouette is unstoppable, because it hits exactly the dad shoe trend of today. This look was created by the running boom at the end of the eighties. Quickly, the typical running shoes found their way into the typical American closet due to their high wearing comfort: we all know the pictures of American fathers who were out with the family in Levis jeans, T-shirt, baseball cap and the typical sneakers. And it is precisely this style that today’s generations have sneaked in: chunky silhouettes, the nineties running look and colorful sneaker colorways are more hyped than ever among celebrities, sneakerheads and in street style. The fashion world is making a very clear statement: fashion is individual and everyone should wear what they feel like. No more typical trends – dad style and ugly fashion stand for a self-confident and real generation.

The features of the New Balance Sneaker 530

Like many silhouettes of the sneaker label New Balance, the 530 is also an iconic model in dad style. The New Balance 530 is a true 90’s runner that is now available in countless iconic but also modern colorways. Basically you can buy the shoe in most stores, but popular colorways like the New Balance 530 beige or baby blue are often instantly out of stock. So it’s worth being quick!

Suede, air-permeable mesh and leather are used as materials for the overlay of the 530. These are high-quality materials without frippery in a discreet style – very typical for this sneaker era. The fit of the 530 is something special, because unisex models are available from NB up to size 55. In addition, you can determine the width or width of the shoe, so that it really fits well and you have an optimal hold. This sets the manufacturer apart from many other brands that only offer standard. 

Technical details of the 530 

Optimum cushioning and stability is provided on the one hand by the ENCAP® midsole with the built-in EVA wedge, which is enclosed by a stabilizing edge. On the other hand, however, the ABZORB® cushioning for the heel, which additionally ensures optimal force distribution. Consisting of 3 parts, the cushioning absorbs impact forces by combining damping and pressure resistance – this comfort makes the silhouette a very popular running shoe to this day. The cushioning also includes Fresh Foam – an innovative milestone in cushioning material. The foam absorbs the impact forces during sports and thus ensures the best damping and flexibility. At the same time, the material does not lose any energy, so you are optimally supported. 

The discreet look can be combined with everything and is therefore appreciated by many street style followers. The times of classic sneakers that you should only wear for sports are definitely over – even elegant clothes can be worn super with the NB 530. New Balance likes to emphasize the retro style with matching colorways in vintage look.

The 530 has a role model function

For as long as the trend has been around, we’ve seen the famous pioneer of dad sneakers on the feet of many stars and influencers: the New Balance 530 is the epitome of the nineties look, bringing many other models back to the top. So far, however, no other model has been able to outrank it, because it definitely has the real vintage character from the nineties and an understated design that really goes with everything: whether sporty, street style, fashionista or business – the sneaker look is hyped like never before!

The 530 has not only remained true to its look from the very first release in 1992, it is also unbeatable in terms of price. At just under 100 euros, it offers a price-performance ratio that has it all and does not follow the typical hyped price models. Thus, the 530 remains a sneaker for all those who want performance and fashion – and that’s exactly what we find really strong! 

Where can I buy the New Balance 530?
