When you look through New Balance’s lifestyle collection, you’ll be greeted mostly by muted hues that nod to the classic navy and grey of the ‘80s. It’s what New Balance is known for and NB stans love it. But, on the other end of the spectrum, New Balance’s more modern silhouettes — largely the performance running category — feature some of the boldest palettes on the market.

This is one of the things that always draws us to New Balance: few brands stretch the scale of retro to modern with such finesse. New Balance is the MVP on both counts.

But the colorful New Balance colorways get much less airtime than their more restrained, retro counterparts. That’s to be expected, because the New Balance 991 is far more popular than the Hierro V7 GTX when it comes to everyday wear. But we think that these bright, unsung heroes deserve some love, so we’ve rounded up some of the best colorful New Balance colorways to wear in spring below.

The New Balance FuelCell Propel v4 comes in some of the brand's most considered colorways. Featuring fluorescent hits that play into the technical, performance character of the silhouette, each colorway is well thought out, never going overboard with all-out color but utilizing flashes of highlight hues instead.

Fresh Foam X More v4

The same goes for this Lapis colorway of the Fresh Foam X More v4. The white sole unit complements the slightly washed-out blue palette, which catches the eye, but doesn't scream for attention.
