We would say that New Balance is having a moment, but when we really think about it, New Balance has been having a moment for a couple of decades now. It seems like every week we see a new New Balance model hit our Instagram feeds and blow the last one out of the water; that goes for collaborations and general releases alike. What’s really setting the New Balance offering apart from the crowd right now, though, are the colorways. In particular, the New Balance colorways for winter.
From murky earth tones to bolder color splashes, New Balance colorways for winter cover all tastes, meaning that there’s a wildly versatile mixture on site. What’s more, the brand’s penchant for high-quality materials like smooth suede and grained leather makes the colorways even more attractive and even more suited to the colder seasons.
Below, we’ve picked out the 10 New Balance colorways for winter that have piqued our interests. Covering silhouettes ranging from the iconic 992 to new arrivals in the XC72, it’s testament to New Balance’s all-encompassing skillset.

We spoke about the brand’s skills with materials and this 997H is proof. Brown leather makes up the bulk of the upper, contrasting smoothly with a perforated suede toe box in beige. Turquoise and maroon round out the shoe with hits to the collar and laces.
We’re always on board with a gum sole and the way that this shoe echoes the gum finish to the heel and New Balance logo is just… *chef’s kiss*.
XC72 Storm Blue
Winter colorways aren’t all about dialing things down. There’s always room in the winter rotation for an energetic color burst, too. This XC72 is just that.
327 Varsity Green
We’re big on earth tones during fall and winter, but they’re not for everyone. For those who like the idea of earth tones but can’t turn their back on the bright hues of summer, this Varsity Green palette is the one.
Made in USA 992 Burgundy
Burgundy uppers in fine suede contend with a sporty gold trim to the heel tab, logo, and sole cushioning. Overall, though, the sophisticated burgundy reigns supreme.
Todd Snyder 327 Workwear
Inspired by the inimitable hues of traditional workwear, Todd Snyder’s take on the 327 is unwittingly perfect for blending into fall/winter landscapes.
Made in UK 577 Grey
Part of New Balance’s Made in the UK category, this pair of 577s is demarcated with a closer focus on materials. The multicolored panels revolve around neutral tones but a blue ENCAP hit to the laces and an orange heel tab add a punch at the end.
57/40 Light Cliff Grey
This colorway seems to develop from start to finish. Beginning at the heel with muted greens, it matures to a brighter turquoise by the time we reach the toe.
Made in USA 992 White
Flying the flag for the US team is this pair of immaculately clean 992s. White suede is a rarity and it’s sad. It does mean, though, that when it turns up we go extra crazy over it.
Did we save the best till last? That’s for you to decide, but it’s definitely up there. A mixture of leather paneling and supple suede defines this shoe with contrasting burgundy and green hues.
