New Balance had a huge year in 2013. The Boston-based sneaker brand celebrated 107 years in business, and made a ton of awesome kicks. The brand is known for its sneakers that are worth the asking price because it's the only major athletic sneaker brand currently making sneakers in the United States, as well as domestically through outposts in England and Japan.
This year saw tons of collaborations for New Balance and while the usual suspects—Ronnie Fieg, Concepts, Burn Rubber—made their rounds with top-notch sneakers, men's style brands and more obscure boutiques got their chance to work magic on New Balance silhouettes. This was also the first time ever that Boston's Bodega received the chance to work on a New Balance sneaker, too.
But it wasn't just collaborations that New Balance dropped in 2013, the brand released classics and new sneakers, too. And a lot them were just as good as the highly-touted collabs. It's hard to differentiate between a tried-and-true classic and a sneaker that's simply mind blowing, but here's an attempt. Here are The 25 Best New Balance Sneakers of 2013.
