Make Every Side Your Good Side – Heidi Klum for New Balance


Anyone that knows me knows that I’m the type of person that likes to wear running clothes that are cute and do their job too. I like to wear something that makes me feel good about the way I look, even if I’m the only one that sees it because I’m upstairs on the treadmill. There’s just something about feeling good in the clothes that I have on that gives me a mental boost when I’m running. Because of that, I was so excited to receive a piece of clothing from Heidi Klum’s New Balance line to try out!
Recently, New Balance teamed up with Heidi Klum to launch their new Heidi Klum for New Balance collection (HKNB). This collection is one part Heidi and one part New Balance, as you can see in the pictures below:


What I really liked about this top was that it’s super lightweight and, since it’s mesh, it’s properly ventilated. Perfect for our hot, sticky summers here in the South! I also thought the lavender color (Cosmic Sky) was really pretty too.


Here’s how the Heidi Klum for New Balance site describes this great top:

Women’s Fitness – HKNB Mesh Singlet

“The cutout in the back is super-hot, but it also has a bit of a tougher, tomboy feel; the combination ends up feeling sexy.” — Heidi Klum Head-turning and heart-pumping, the Heidi Klum for New Balance Mesh Singlet heats up your workout in more than one way. This women’s tank features breezy allover mesh with iridescent trim, plus an unexpected cutout back. Oh, and the cutout lines up perfectly with the HKNB Hottie Bra, so you can feel supported and sexy.

  • Iridescent details

As a busy mom, I have to sometimes put my running gear on earlier in the day (so I can get a run in as soon as time becomes available) which means I might be out running errands or picking up the kids from school while wearing it. It’s nice to know that I can still feel like I’m dressed cute even when I’m in workout clothes!

If you’d like to see more of her line, you can visit the HKNB site or you can check out my Pinterest board. I pinned a few of the items that I thought would be great to wear when I go run or run errands! 


When you’re looking for workout/running clothes, do you look for the kinds that work (sweat wicking, comfortable, light weight) and look cute too? Are you like me and own more running clothes and shoes than “normal” clothes? 🙂 It’s great to know that now we don’t have to choose between quality gear and something that looks nice. 

Happy Running!
