I've got a lot of sneakers by normal human being standards—a pitiful collection by diehard sneakerhead metrics—but I think I'm versed enough in the art of hypebeasting to have gained some wisdom over the years when it comes to buying casual footwear. Like, I know that while these Made in England New Balance 577s aren't head turners by any means, you'll actually still be wearing them in a few years. Sure, like any new sneaker, you'll probably wear the shit out them for the first week or so just because they're new, but you probably won't Instagram them and you won't brag to your friends about them. And, yes, that's a good thing. Then, like all of the sneakers before them, they'll slowly but surely find their way to your closet or bedroom floor. However, unlike those all red Air Max's or laceless Margiela's, these New Balances are patient. They don't scream for attention and they don't mind patiently waiting underneath 6 other pairs for you to come back around a in 2 years, realizing that they were actually the wisest sneaker purchase you ever made.
