Established in the UK in 1906, New Balance started out producing arch supports for people who spent the working days on their feet. In the 1950's, when athletes started asking for tailored training shoes, the company then started producing its first performance styles. These women's 373, from the brand, are presented in a premium suede upper in burgundy, with tonal nylon mesh panels. The shoe is sat on a clean two tone mid sole in white and blue, with the black rubber out sole. The shoes are finished with blue and white leather branding on the sides, a blue leather heel panel, and a soft textile lining.
