You should by now already be used to breaking every traditional sartorial rule of menswear, and this should be more evident when it comes to footwear. Let’s be honest: we didn’t quite expect toe-exposing slides to continue to be such a big hit this year. The bathroom sandal-inspired footwear-turned-fashion staple is all the rage, whether from luxury fashion houses to sports labels. There’s a plethora of colours, styles and price points to consider.
To start you off on the right foot, New Balance’s latest offerings let you ease your way into the “highly-ventilated and stylish” footwear scene with its range of sandals and slides from the New Balance Spring/Summer 2019 footwear collection.
Try the SDL750 sandals with adjustable straps, available in a wide range of colours (pink's on the menu, by the way).
Another hit from the collection, the SDL900 sandals, offer extra cushioning with super-soft VersaLite midsole technology and an NB Comfort insert. The trademarked BOA closure system locks in the straps, meaning there’s little chance of slippage.
The New Balance SDL330 recaptures the '90s retro feel with a modern twist. The adjustable straps mean you can easily adjust the shoe to your size for a snug fit, and the signature Revlite midsole offers long-term cushioning for those walks in the park.
Another hot issue from the Spring/Summer 2019 is the New Balance SMF200 slide. The slide has plush top bed foam for cushioning and offers a great underfoot feel.
