We may have just seen Miu Miu’s latest New Balance 574 sneakers. But there are more Miu Miu x New Balance sneakers where that came from.
In October 2023, during its Spring/Summer 2024 show, Miu Miu offered the first looks at its upcoming New Balance sneaker, in which Prada’s little sister adopted the 530 model. It’s actually a New Balance 530 SL (more about this later).
Miu Miu’s retro New Balances arrive in beige and brown colorways, reiterating the SS24 palette. As Highsnobiety’s new editor Jake Silbert called them, the “student” joggers fit right in among Miu Miu’s parade of tight cardigans, low-cut skirts, and librarian glasses.
If you haven’t noticed, Miu Miu’s New Balance 530 sneakers are not your typical 530. They have been reduced since we last saw the OG model.
For its SS24 collaboration, Miu Miu essentially ditched the traditional chunky ABZORB-infused sole of the New Balance shoe, opting for a super flat and slim retro runner vibe. And thus the 530 SL was born. I wonder if SL means “Super Low”.
Once again, we’ve seen Miu Miu’s New Balance 530 SL sneakers in brown colorways. But a new white colorway entered the chat, ultimately kicking off the release of the collaborative sneaker.
Revealed by New Balance Japan Marketing Manager Tsuyoshi Ikedo, we see a new white paint job on the low-end New Balance sneakers.
Like the others, the newest version features a nice mesh and suede upper. They also come with two sets of laces and subtle New Balance and Miu Miu branding.
For those Miu Miu guys and gals wondering, the brand’s white New Balance 530 SL sneakers are currently up for grabs at Miu Miu’s Tokyo flagship.
At this time, it is unknown if the white colorway will receive a wider global release. But with this scheme out in the world (well, Tokyo for now), it’s safe to assume that Miu Miu’s other New Balances aren’t far behind.
