New Balance x Staud Is Here—& J. Lo Already Loves The Sneakers

·3 min read

All of a sudden, I’m a sneaker girl. Why, you ask? Because New Balance and STAUD have teamed up for yet another dreamy collaboration—and I have never received so many compliments on a pair of kicks in my life. They’re so cool, even J. Lo has them. Welcome to the very first thing J. Lo and I have ever had in common.

Seriously, though. In the eyes of many millennial tastemakers, New Balance x STAUD was the first truly successful collab to elevate both brands in the eyes of shoppers. New Balance die-hards got a taste of luxury and STAUD girls got to combine comfort with their specific sense of style. It was a match made in sartorial heaven—so of course, the team-up couldn’t be a one-and-done thing.

This collection is definitely the duo’s finest to date. In terms of marrying both brands’ aesthetics, they’ve found a perfect match (pun intended) in a tennis-inspired theme. Think pastel yellows, minty greens, sky blues and tennis whites, in elevated activewear silhouettes from terry shorts to corset tanks to this season’s hottest must-have, the tennis skirt.

Oh, and the shoes I’ve been wearing for the past month and getting so many compliments on. Out of all the pieces in the New Balance x STAUD drops, the sneakers are always the quickest to sell out, and my STAUD 57/40s in Agave with Green are definitely shaping up to be summer’s must-have footwear essentials.

That said, they aren’t the only sneakers in the range. There’s also the STAUD 327s in Sea Salt with Atlantic, a more neutral colorway that meshes perfectly with this New Balance heritage silhouette. And I have my suspicions that the collection’s tennis ball-inspired Tommy Beaded Bag will also be a hot seller.
