The lifestyle of the modern athlete is fairly inauspicious. Between work and sometimes school, life obligations, and sustaining your life, the training comes and goes, and shoes are what are getting you from place to place, literally.

Sometimes, it’s not about cross training and needing a shoe that do everything in the gym – sometimes, it’s about having a shoe that can take you from place to place without having to look out of place. New Balance has a set that is a kind of antidote for that problem.

New Balance introduces to athletes The Blue Tab Collection, a tri-set of running shoes that’s at the top of the class, both in performance and in appearance. Using the 1600, 890v3, and 1400, you can choose between any of the three shoes that best fits your running needs and also have the ability to wear them between training sessions without having to frustrate yourself or your wardrobe.

Each shoe is marked with the blue-colored New Balance metallic tab and accompanied by a burgundy and navy color scheme that sits low-key in the background, but is noticeably lux.

The Blue Tab Collection by New Balance is an international release, but will be available online at various boutiques.
