3 Ways We're Wearing This Editor-Favorite Sneaker Brand This Spring

Sponsor Content Created With New Balance

All the Ways to Wear is a monthly series where we round up the personal twists the Who What Wear team is putting on one particular item, style, or trend. Whether it’s the trending denim of the moment or the season’s It print, we hope to inspire your daily outfits and up the cost per wear on some of our favorite items.

Look in any fashion person's closet, and I guarantee you'll find a pair of sneakers—and not just the comfy sneakers she's wearing to that 7 a.m. HIIT workout but rather sporty, fashionable sneakers. There's one particular brand that editors, It girls, celebrities, and every stylish person in between owns. Yep, you guessed it: New Balance. Fresh drops on the site regularly send shoppers into frenzies, the collabs are always next-level, and setting an alert for a size restock is a common occurrence. (They're never not selling out!) This spring is no different, and now more than ever, we're turning to New Balance to make our looks that much cooler. Keep scrolling to see how three fashion editors—myself included—are wearing the most coveted New Balance kicks this season.

"As a city dweller, I center all my looks around the footwear I need to wear that day. Typically, sneakers are my go-to, and these 550s are a staple in my (and every New Yorker's) closet. This style has stayed on-trend for years now, and I wanted the apparel I wore with it to be just as cool. Cropped bomber jackets and wide-leg jeans have been hot-ticket items this season and pair perfectly with the street style look of the sneakers. I've already worn this easy look multiple times this month and don't plan on stopping." — Natalie Gray Herder, associate editor

"Happy Hot Girl Walk season to those who celebrate. Yep, the sun is out, the layers have been shed, and I'm out and about picking up my cute coffee drinks around my neighborhood. When I opened this sporty yet ridiculously cool pair of grey 9060s, I was instantly inspired by old pictures of Princess Di wearing New Balance sneakers and bike shorts. To make it feel a bit more L.A., I swapped out her classic crew-neck sweatshirt for a breezy, white button-down and threw on a onesie (a little nod to the 2023 trend). I'll be wearing this look everywhere from strolls in the park to brunch with my friends." — Anneliese Dominguez, senior editor

"When we can officially call it spring, I tend to ditch the grays, blacks, and beiges of my winter wardrobe and opt for pops of color. I threw on a green, cropped leather jacket to really bring out the bright-green hue of my classic 574 sneakers. Let's be real: I can never stop wearing neutrals, so I opted for a denim maxi skirt (which is trending hard right now) and a black top. This outfit was comfortable, easy, and true to my personal style, which prioritizes color for the ultimate mood boost. I've seen these sneakers all over the internet for years now, and they definitely live up to the hype. I can wear my 574s to run errands, bike around the city, or even at the office on a casual day, and I know that I won't have to compromise style or comfort." — Aniyah Morinia, editor
