Packing Light — New Balance 410 Collection For Fall
Weighing seven ounces each, the sneakers in New Balance‘s 410 Collection for Fall 2009 are as conveniently lightweight as they are cute. The kicks were designed by New Balance’s Creative Directors, Savania Davies-Keiller and Roberto Crivello, with the notion of chic comfort as the guiding principle.
Both the nylon used for the uppers and the suede used for the toe wraps, heels, eye rows and “N” logo are water repellent.The kicks are available in three colorways: a light mauve with icy blue gray suede trim, a buttercream beige with dark forest green suede details, and a dark burgundy with olive green. As you can see, the silhouette is much more streamlined, as some of the more extraneous materials were eliminated so as to simplify the style and lessen the shoe’s weight.
Aren’t these convenient? I love the idea of these weighing less than most bottles of water!
New Balance 410, $75 each. Available at select Nordstrom stores.
