Let’s talk sneakers.

We’ve got nothing against the fresh-out-of-the-box crispiness of the streetwear set…but we’re usually after a slightly more lived-in look. We’re thinking of the pair you’ve taken out for a jog every other day for a year, picking up mud, grit and an aura of indestructibility along the way. It’s the object equivalent of a family dog.

New Balance’s Lake District Series nails the look just about perfectly, adding earthier colorways to the classic 576 shape. They made their way into stores a couple weeks back, just in time for mud season.
