Not only is the New Balance 530 the newest New Balance model that contains “Pinball” themes, it also happens to be available for purchase now! Let’s take a closer look at the New Balance 530 that’s inspired by the classic retro pinball machine.
The New Balance 530 comes in a black upper that consists of rich suede and mesh paneling. To offset the dark look of the sneaker, that heel counter, “N” logo and tongue all come in bright red and orange colors. Adding a little bit more contrast to the shoe is the mint green hits found on the New Balance logo on the tongue patch as well as in the “530” on the heel. Completing the look are the black laces, a white IMEVA midsole, and a blown rubber outsole, Available now at select New Balance retailers, go ahead and pick up your own pair for $100.
The colors do remind me of the pinball machines, especially the mint green found on the tongue branding of the shoe. I like the suede and mech build, and the leather side paneling definitely give the shoe more of a premium look.
