J.Crew & New Balance Brew A Great Blend

This spring I have been looking at many different sneaker brands that will fit well into my aesthetic of style of dress that can be more comfortable for me than my normal dress shoe. I have been paying more attention to New Balance because they are always putting great collaborations together and with J. Crew being my favorite apparel brand they can't go wrong.

This latest collaboration inspired by a popular espresso drink – cortado – it’s pretty much a beverage that consists of espresso coffee mixed with an equal amount of warm milk to reduce the acidity. It feels like the perfect shoe to walk into a coffee shop and order your favorite drink. 

With a blend of cream, white and brown are seen throughout the sneaker’s premium mixed material construction of suede panels, mesh underlays and leather accents. Look like the perfect combination I need to go with my cognac leather accessories. 

Retail price is set at $210
