Who should NOT buy New Balance 530
Move steadily with the New Balance 530
We just love the stable ride of the New Balance 530. New Balance 530's ENCAP shoe technology involves a core of EVA or Ethylene Vinyl Acetate foam encapsulated within a shell of polyurethane, which supplies added stability and shock absorption.
Aside from its supportive technology, the overall fit of the New Balance 530 further kept our feet in place with its classic lacing system, which keeps the feet snug to support various types of movement.
A plush running-inspired New Balance sneaker
Although we found the footbed to be quite firm, it's also very comfortable!
Aside from the ENCAP technology, an injection-molded EVA foam or IMEVA midsole material also gives New Balance 530 sneakers a firm midsole but retains a very flexible cushioning.
Years and years of wearing the NB 530
After numerous tests, we were not able to damage these sneakers. They are super durable as long as you stick to the casual use, of course.
As light as air
At no point could we feel this sneaker weighing us down. It really feels lightweight.
Pairs well with lots of outfits
So many colorways - we wanted to get more than 1! It's the classic good looks and retro feel of this shoe that makes them so versatile.
