Today, New Balance launched their latest Elite Edition Collection - The Barbershop Shoe Pack. If you're a man that enjoys clean lines, good tailoring and a haircut sharper than a switchblade then you'll want to kit your feet out in the kicks to match.
What are they: Retro suede kicks that manage to be futuristic and old school all at the same time. Like Back To The Future but without the chance of getting off with your own Mum.
Who makes them: New Balance. Pay attention.
Barbershop-inspired? Yep. To fit the rise of traditional barbershops and chaps enjoying good old fashioned 1920s-style grooming and tailoring, these trainers take inspiration from the red, white and blue barber shop poles of times past and complete with checkerboard inserts to match the vintage shop floor vibe.
Where to wear them: To that cool, new part-restaurant-part-butchers where they serve craft beers and steaks the size of your head.
What to wear them with: Your freshly trimmed bonce, a clean scent and your finest smart-casuals.
What colours they come in: Red, blue and grey.
How much are they: £90-100 from Woodhouse Clothing, Size?, End Clothing, Hanon, Aphrodite and other key stockists.
