We know. It’s not even the worst part of winter yet; those three dreadful, dark months of January, February, and March, where the holiday season’s festive cheer is long gone, yet spring is so far away. But now we have another reason to look forward to the warm up: fun, bright sneakers from New Balance.

New Balance and Kate Spade Saturday have joined forces to offer a “capsule collection” of sneakers that are built for performance but so cute you may not want to ruin the shoes by actually running in them.

Kate Spade Saturday’s spring palette, which is filled with bright and graphic colors and patterns, will be gracing the exterior of two women’s training shoes: New Balance’s WX711, which launched in 2014, and the WX811, a new fitness trainer debuting in January 2015.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Kate Spade Saturday on this unique fashion-meets-function collection,” said Sarah Kopriva, strategic business unit manager for women’s fitness footwear at New Balance. “The WX711 and WX811 are rooted in the comfort and performance women expect from New Balance, and combined with Kate Spade Saturday’s innovative and playful styling, we know women will be excited to wear these footwear styles to the gym or out and about on Saturday, the best day of the week.”

All styles will be available starting February 2015 and will cost $95 each. You can find these stylish kicks at NewBalance.com, Saturday.com, select New Balance stores, and select Kate Spade Saturday stores (including the Pru location).

“Our partnership with New Balance blends the best of our brand—easy, fun vibes—with New Balance’s strong reputation for leading performance technology,” said Kate Spade Saturday Senior Vice President and Brand Director, Kyle Andrew. “The end result of this collaboration is a collection made for living the Saturday lifestyle, seven days a week.”
