New Balance Trainers

Are they 'cool'?! We're going on a city break this weekend, so expecting lots of walking etc. and would like to be comfy but also look stylish. I'm thinking of wearing them with ankle grazer jeans in black or dark denim.
Are New Balance trainers stylish? Or does anyone have any other cool looking trainer suggestions?
I've attached pics of the ones I think I like.

I've got these. They look horrible in this picture but I really like them. I had them in the 90s indie days too in navy, loved them then and love them now!

They are super cool. I love them. Especially with a stripy sock.

They are extremely comfortable, much more comfy than Adidas imo.

I'm going to sound like a big spoilsport but isn't it a little bit silly to get brand new footwear for a whole weekend of walking with no time to break them in? Might want to stock up on the plasters!

Yes they are indeed 'trendy'!!

However. Recently something came out where the brand was linked to being pro-Trump or racist or something hmm I still wear mine though, I find they are great for comfort when walking!

Daft I really don't think they'll need breaking in, they are externally comfortable. I bought mine on holiday to wear as my others got soaked in the rain and stunk! 🤢

Another spoilsport here - they are lovely but that colour will get trashed in the rain. Especially if your dark jeans are newish and the colour is still prone to running.

Nike Internationists are similar, I've got some in khaki and dark grey which look great with dark jeans.

Try Zalando, they have a trainer sale on at the moment, although they may not get here for the weekend.

Love the mint accents on yours Buster!
Thanks for your replies everyone! I shall definitely take plasters!
Good point Simmons, maybe I'll go for the darker colour. I'll definitely look on Zalando, Thank you!

If you go for the pale white ones invest in a protective spray! Actually those aren't mine! 😂 mine are similar! No wonder they weren't as nice!
