From new designs like the 990v6 to modern collabs from Aimé Leon Dore, these are some of the best New Balance sneakers for spring.

With spring officially here, it’s time to retire the heavy boots for more lightweight and breathable options. New Balance continues to be a go-to brand for those looking for comfortable, versatile, and timeless sneakers.

Silhouettes like the New Balance 1906R, 2002R, and 550 are some of the many styles that are sure to be popular this season. With a variety of colorways to choose from, here are the top five New Balance sneakers you should add to your rotation for spring.

New Balance 990v6 Grey

The 990v6 is New Balance’s latest addition to the 990 family and is expected to be one of the brand’s star silhouettes for spring. The classic “New Balance Grey” colorway is a versatile style that goes with just about anything, no matter how relaxed or elevated. The shoe features a premium suede and mesh upper, a signature ENCAP midsole for all-day comfort, and reflective elements that will shine bright when hit with that springtime sun.

New Balance 550 Aimé Leon Dore Brown

Aimé Leon Dore adds brown accents to their selection of vintage-inspired 550s. The rich brown colorway with soft leather uppers make this shoe stand out from the crowd, while an Ortholite insole provides comfort and quality for those spring days. This sneaker is a subtle statement piece that will add to your spring wardrobe.

New Balance 2002R Protection Pack Lunar New Year Dusty Lilac

New Balance continues dropping their ongoing Protection Pack colorways with this Dusty Lilac edition. For those that love adding color to their spring fits, this faded Dusty Lilac colorway has a floral complexion. The upper is a mix of suede and mesh, while the sole is made with ABZORB cushioning technology for a comfortable fit. This is a statement shoe that will elevate any spring outfit with its unique design.

New Balance 1906R White Green Cream

The 1906R is a throwback style inspired by New Balance’s archival sneakers like the 990 and 860v2. The sneaker features a white leather upper with accents of green and cream for a pop of color that aligns with the greenery that starts to come through every spring. Plus, the minimalist shades will look great with any light pieces you pair with them this spring.

New Balance 9060 Sea Salt Cherry Blossom

The 9060 is a brand-new silhouette from New Balance that, to some, may seem a bit outside of their usual wheelhouse of sneakers with a more linear look. Despite its unique shape, the sneaker still holds some of the same values that New Balance fans will love, such as its mix of mesh and suede uppers and cushioned sole. Hits of Sea Salt and Cherry Blossom bring more pastel hues to the sneaker that are perfect for the season. Finished off with a midsole that features REVlite cushioning for a comfortable fit, these sneakers will put just the right amount of spring in your step.
