New Balance Line of Literary Sneakers

No kidding. New Balance has announced a line of shoes called the “Authors Collection,” with color schemes inspired by American novelists and their works. Reminiscent of old hardback book covers, the styles are “earthy” in their color schemes. Almost more fun than the shoes is reading the comments on this new line from Twitter feeds:

JamesAllder: “I guess these shoes are designed for writers. On behalf of all writers, may I just say that we write in our socks. Thanks for thinking of us, though.”

aarontpratt: “Nothing quite says ‘I’m a casual yet cultured 30- or 40-something male’ like these. Reading Hemingway while grilling steaks, etc.”

JenHoward “Kickin’ it with Papa.” & “This is why we need English majors!”
