In high school, people used to call New Balances "Nerds," because they have a big "N" on them and because, well, they were generally worn by nerds. But with the surge in popularity of glasses, the ubiquity of high-waisted jeans, and the revival of Mr. Rogers-style cardigans, we think it's safe to say that the classic nerd look is in full effect right now. So, does that mean that New Balances are cool? Well - they've released this new update on the classic style - it comes in green or red plaid, and the nerdy "N" is now a mildly tough-looking painted on letter. Would you wear these New Balances? They would definitely match your plaid flannel shirt, whether it's from The Row or L.L. Bean. --ALISON COOL
