If you or someone you know is a sucker for anything personalized, get ready for some exciting news. New Balance has a customization feature on their site and I can tell you from firsthand experience, it’s amazing. You can personalize classic styles like the 574 and the 998, but they just added their iconic Court sneakers to the mix and it’s a game-changer.
Unlike the other styles available for personalization that look and feel a bit more sporty, the Court Sneaker is slim, sleek and perfect for pairing with skirts, dresses and skinny jeans alike. Even better, there are so many good personalization options. Not only can you choose custom colors for everything from the base collar to the N logo, but you can also have them embroidered! Yes, you can totally get your new favorite sneakers emblazoned with your name, initials or even something funny. Best of all? Customizing your own pair of New Balance kicks isn’t crazy expensive. Just $150 and you’ll get a pair of one-a-kind sneakers… with your name on them!
Obviously, this is an awesome treat yourself moment, but since it is the season of giving, it’s worth pointing out that this would totally make for an extra special gift for anyone that loves monograms or personalization. Plus, this is one of those gifts that will definitely impress because your gift recipient will know you put lots of thought into it. Just saying…
Be forewarned, the customization process can be a bit daunting at first. With so many colors to choose from, it took me a while to finally start experimenting. I actually Googled images of New Balance sneakers to get some inspo, then went to the customizer to create my own sneaker masterpiece. Once I got into it, I was having so much fun that I am seriously considering always making custom sneakers. Why not, right?!
One important note: if you want your personalized sneakers to arrive by Christmas, place your order by December 8. You’ve been warned!
