New Balance 530 - a true 90's runner

New Balance may be an old hand in the sneaker business, but they always manage to hit the nerve of the times. They always aim for the best performance - but of course not without a really cool look. With the relaunch of the NB 530 in 2014, the Americans built on the huge success of the New Balance 550: The 90's runner with the chunky sole in dad style is the 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.

From running shoe to dad-style sneaker

The NB 530 was released in the early nineties as a classic running shoe. And it was initially appreciated as such by all runners, as it performed as a top model with lots of technical innovations that were continuously developed further. This makes the 530 another representative of the New Balance philosophy: equipping athletes with the best tools while always remaining true to its own values.

After being packed away in the New Balance archive for a few years and hardly ever being produced, the 530 was given a major relaunch in 2014. Since then, the hype for this silhouette has continued unabated, as it perfectly captures today's dad shoe trend. This look was created by the running boom at the end of the eighties. The typical running shoes quickly found their way into the typical American closet due to their high level of comfort: we all know the images of American fathers out and about with the family in Levis jeans, T-shirt, baseball cap and the typical sneakers. And it's precisely this style that today's generations have adopted: chunky silhouettes, the nineties running look and colorful sneaker colorways are more hyped than ever among stars, sneakerheads and in street style. The fashion world is making a very clear statement: fashion is individual and everyone should wear what they like. No more typical trends - dad style and ugly fashion stand for a self-confident and real generation.

The special features of the New Balance 530 sneaker

Like many silhouettes from sneaker label New Balance, the 530 is also an iconic model in dad style. The New Balance 530 is a true 90s runner that is now available in countless iconic but also modern colorways. You can generally buy the shoe in most stores, but popular colorways such as the New Balance 530 beige or baby blue are often sold out immediately. So it pays to be quick!

Suede, breathable mesh and leather are used for the overlay of the 530. These are high-quality materials without frills in a discreet style - typical of this sneaker era. The fit of the 530 is something special, as NB offers unisex models up to size 55. You can also determine the width of the shoe so that it really fits well and gives you optimum support. This sets the manufacturer apart from many other brands that only offer standard models.

Technical details of the 530

The ENCAP® midsole with integrated EVA wedge, which is surrounded by a stabilizing edge, ensures optimal cushioning and stability. On the other hand, the ABZORB® cushioning for the heel also ensures optimum force distribution. The 3-piece cushioning absorbs impact forces by combining cushioning and pressure resistance - this comfort makes the silhouette a very popular running shoe to this day. Cushioning also includes Fresh Foam - an innovative milestone in the field of cushioning material. The foam absorbs the impact forces during sport and thus ensures the best cushioning and flexibility. At the same time, the material does not lose any energy, so you are optimally supported.

The understated look can be combined with anything and is therefore appreciated by many street style fans. The days of classic sneakers that should only be worn for sports are definitely over - even elegant clothing can be worn with the NB 530. New Balance likes to underline the retro style with matching colorways in a vintage look.

The 530 is a role model

Since the trend started, we have 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 and has brought many other models back to the top. So far, however, no other model has been able to overtake the model, because it definitely has the genuine vintage character from the nineties and a subtle 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, it offers great value for money and doesn't follow the typical hyped price models. The 530 remains a sneaker for anyone who wants performance and fashion - and that's exactly what we think is really great!

Where can I buy the New Balance 530?

The new New Balance sneaker is usually quite easy to get, as the variety of different styles is enormous. Nevertheless, we have noticed that many popular colorways - for example baby blue - usually sell out quickly and are therefore difficult to get. Just take a look around this page and click through the various suppliers for the 530. asphaltgold and BSTN, for example, are good addresses for the model.

Why the New Balance 530 is so popular?

The question is easy to answer! Firstly, at around 100 euros, the price is unbeatable for a good sneaker. And secondly, the classic 90s runner in dad style is currently in high demand among the younger generation. So if you're looking for a current and cool model, you've now found what you want.

Which colorways are available for the NB 530?
