Who should NOT buy it

Skip the New Balance 9060 for the Adidas Ozweego if you want a squeak-free shoe that comes in multiple colorways. And if you'd rather slip into something far more breathable, turn to the New Balance 1906R.

The long-lasting New Balance 9060

Complementing the 9060's top-level craftsmanship is its lasting construction. It was easy to rock this sneaker on the streets especially once we realized how sturdy it is. It looked almost brand new after all of our tests!

Simply lovely to look at

Not the quietest New Balance shoe around

Keep in mind though that this sneaker can be squeaky at times. It's not the best experience but if you tighten the laces, it might stop!

Could be a bit more breathable

These sneakers are kinda warm. We would not recommend them for very hot days!
