Trending RN: New Balance 530

It’s no secret that retro runner styles have been making big waves for some time now. One of the most popular silhouettes to hit the streets is New Balance’s iconic 530 model.

Fast becoming an essential go-to, the 530 that takes cues from ‘dad sneaker’ style and sporty vibes. As seen on up-and-coming dancer-turned-producer, TSHA, these clean kicks have landed in fresh new colourways just for the gals, with some JD-exclusives too!

Get To Know

Still pretty new to the scene, the NB530 silhouette has come a long way in a short time. Inspired by OG runners of the ‘90s and ‘00s, they’re known for their chunky design and sports-inspired details.


These throwback kicks combine with modern tech for maximum comfort. A breathable mesh upper is given stability with sleek stitched overlays, while New Balance’s signature in-house tech delivers unbeatable comfort. They sit atop an ultra-lightweight and dual-layered ENCAP midsole with ABZORB cushioning for a responsive step.


Retro isn’t goin’ anywhere, and revisiting the brand’s sportswear heritage, the 530 has been spotted on some of our fave gals.

We’ve linked up with London-based producer TSHA, for all the styling inspo on these classic sneaks.


Since the release of her debut album, ‘Capricorn Sun’ in 2022, TSHA’s fearless attitude and innovation shines through in her eclectic and emotive sounds.


TSHA’s laidback vibes and effortless cool-girl style pairs up perfectly with the 530. Starting out as a dancer, she’s paved her way into producing and performed at some of the biggest festivals around, with sets at Glastonbury and Lollapalooza, with a pending debut DJ set at Coachella later this year. Along with taking the stage at Manchester’s The Warehouse Project and London’s iconic Printworks venue, TSHA is one to watch for sure.


Landing in fresh new hues, the silhouette sees neutral tones as well as bold greens and blues, combined with crisp white mesh, while signature metallic silver details finish a clean, sporty look.


Whether you’re stepping out in the city or keepin’ it low-key, these kicks look cool with every style. New Balance’s latest clothing collection features hoodies, sweatshirts and joggers ready to elevate your off-duty ‘fits. TSHA’s cosying up in oversized cuts, but pair these sneaks up with denim, leggings, even a cute dress when you’re manifesting Spring! Trust us, the 530 works with everything.


And, we’ve got the soundtrack to match the energy. TSHA’s curated a JD-exclusive playlist combining her fave tracks with some of her own tunes in there, too. Check it out on Spotify!
