New Balance 410 - which colour?

(28 Posts)

I think I'm going to bite the bullet and give them a go. I have a 20% off voucher for ASOS ...

I'm on maternity leave so am signed up to casual/practical clothes and think some New Balance and a new pair of white Madrid Birkenstocks should see me through the summer.

I'll wear them with black Topshop Baxters for now, prob rolled up a bit when it's gets to ankle flashing weather. I'm intending to get some blue skinnies at some point too.

I'm drawn to the plum style but also like the blue and grey

So my query is, which colour do you have and what do you wear them with?

And how do you avoid that lost commuter look?!

Plum smile

I like the blue but love the grey have seen elsewhere. Any idea how their sizing is? Do I need to go a size up from my normal shoe size? Have to buy online as no access to real life shops!

AnythingNotEverything Thu 27-Mar-14 22:05:53

I was just going to order my normal size ... Isn't that how you buy shoes?!

I like the plum.

Also I am cursing you because I ended up buying these via your links. Gah!

bettykt Thu 27-Mar-14 22:27:45

I prefer the plum but am toying between the grey pair and the black ones at the moment. Like over I have to buy online too. Am psyching myself up to part with £50.

I like the grey. New Balance come up quite small.

AnythingNotEverything Thu 27-Mar-14 23:06:20

Sorry penguin wink

I want to buy them now but I've come to bed and my purse is downstairs. Grrrrrr.

Probably wise to sleep on it.

AnythingNotEverything Thu 27-Mar-14 23:10:43

Oops. They take paypal. Oh well. I'll ipdate once they arrive ...

I bought the grey in my size (4) but they were too small....ended up going for the 420's in navy which do fit in my size (4) confused

I have the burgundy as I wanted a little bit of colour but a colour that would go with navy, black and grey (which is what 99% of my wardrobe is). Love them and now I've got my eyes on a navy pair ...

bettykt Fri 28-Mar-14 09:30:36

Oo you are all making me consider a coloured pair instead, especially as my wardrobe is predominantly black, grey, white confused

AnythingNotEverything Fri 28-Mar-14 09:58:30

Back to one of my original questions - what so you wear yours with?

Umlauf Fri 28-Mar-14 10:01:46

I have the navy but would have bought the plum if they had been in stock, much nicer!

tvstand Fri 28-Mar-14 10:14:30

I'm waiting for these to arrive at the moment. I ordered 2 sizes as I wasn't sure of the size, I'm really hoping they are ok [fingers crossed]

Vickiyumyum Fri 28-Mar-14 10:17:42

I keep looking at these but I don't really do trousers or jeans. would they look silly in the summer with a just above knee length denim/chambray skirt and t-shirt/vest?

I like these ones, a bit of colour without being overly pink

Vickiyumyum Fri 28-Mar-14 10:19:49

something like this

Vickiyumyum Fri 28-Mar-14 10:20:46

actually this is closer to what my skirt looks like, but its not from here.

AnythingNotEverything Fri 28-Mar-14 10:20:59

TV - I can't click your link! It's just red on my screen ...

Vickiyumyum Fri 28-Mar-14 10:22:06

oh now just seen the navy version and they are reduced. I have huge size 8 feet, will they look silly in skirt and trainers? I'm 5'9 and size 12.

bishboschone Fri 28-Mar-14 10:30:43

I wear trainers with rolled up jeans . I think they need to be pretty Low profile to work with skirts . I love the Nike colourful ones but they don't like my feet ! I wear purple Merrell barefoot at the moment as my feet are tricky .. Thy are a lovely purple and cobalt blue colour and very low profile .

tvstand Fri 28-Mar-14 10:32:00

That's odd, it works for me.

If you go to and search for New Balance 410 they're reduced to £34.99, they're grey with a blue N and orange sole.
I'm not too impressed with the speed of the office despatch I ordered them on Wednesday and haven't heard anything yet.

I'll try again wtih the main link,21/4307122436

Vickiyumyum Fri 28-Mar-14 10:51:28

im a size 12 but any weight I carry is around my middle and jeans just don't suit me, would it be better to go the nike blazer/adidas gazelle trainer type with a skirt then? or are we talking these type of new balance ? (desperately needs help to do casual without jeans, I often feel overdressed as wear a lot of dresses and skirts and don't even own any trousers)

Vickiyumyum Fri 28-Mar-14 10:51:52

bum! clickable link

They arrived and I love them! Totally wearable with just skinny jeans. No fancy trendiness required.

They'll be good with cropped/ankle skinnies when it's warmer too.

Sizes aren't generous though. I'm ok with the 8 I ordered, but they're quite a narrow fit.
