While a sports shoes might not be the way to go for a night on the town, we couldn’t help but notice it’s undoubtedly becoming more socially acceptable to sport a pair of trainers on a casual day out. A somewhat retro look with a sports twist is always a favourite and one of ours here at Average Janes is the always comfortable New Balance.

New Balance 696 “Tomboy” Pack

The 696 silhouette is designed especially for women and has recently been released in a 3 pair pack dubbed the ‘Tomboy’. The premium looking pack will be coming in three different variations consisting of a premium suede build that comes dressed in lively shades that help offset the look of the shoe.

As well as the suede build, there’s also textured mesh found in the toe box, the ankle collar and the tongue of all three shoes. To add a touch of luxury, New Balance has used tan leather on the tongues’ woven labels and heel tab. The white midsole makes for great contrast, while the classic gum bottom compliments the leather found on the upper perfectly.


The Tomboy Pack comes in Grey/Green, Navy/Red and Teal/Salmon colourways. We love the Navy/Red but accept it’s very difficult to choose between the three. They’re annoyingly not released here just yet but will soon be making their way over from the States where they’re already a massive success. We expect them to come in at around £60 which is reasonable for a premium trainer we know will last.
