New Balance showcased its forthcoming autumn/winter 2013 collection of trainers, lifestyle shoes and performance footwear to the press yesterday - and we were there to take a look. New Balance is a brand we're getting particularly excited about at the moment - not only because its shoes are equally great for performance or lifestyle wear - but because they're a more ethical choice than many other brands. A great deal of its manufacturing based here in the UK and also in the USA, which means they are reassuringly sweatshop-free. 

The label's new collections for Autumn/Winter 2013 are some of the most exciting we've seen yet - featuring a range of Varsity-inspired casual shoes for women, glow-in-the-dark trainers for the serious early morning or late night runner as well as some crazy and colourful Japanese-designed trainers with rainbow laces that will blow your mind.  

New Balance shoes are currently available at various outlets including ASOS, JD Sports, Spartoo and direct from New Balance UK.
