J. Crew X New Balance Athletic Collection

There was a time, not that long ago, when you would only buy your athletic apparel from a couple of big brands, or from your local big box store. No longer. Athletic wear, or ‘athleisure’ if you want to throw some shade on it, is being put out now by everyone from GAP to people like J.Crew. Yup. You read that right. J.Crew is now collaborating with New Balance on an athletic collection.

It makes sense that these two brands would work together; J.Crew, a prep-clothing stalwart and New Balance, a Boston based running brand. You can practically see the Ivy League kids running along the Charles. The collection includes pullovers, shorts, tees, jackets, and of course – some solid sneaker collaborations and accessories – all of which combine New Balance’s great technical wear with J.Crew’s approach to clothing. Take a look through and see if anything catches your eye. [Purchase]
