Los Angeles-based DJ Millie, who also works as a model, describes the New Balance x Bandier collaboration as “crazy, sexy, cool.”

“My biggest goal is to really make people dance, do what their body wants to do, move however you want,” the DJ says in the campaign video.

Meanwhile, the activewear market remains flooded with options as brands continue to compete for their share of the pie. This doesn’t faze New Balance, Netto said. In fact, she pointed out that the pandemic has actually caused more people to reevaluate their health and daily comfort levels. 

“I don’t think [an active lifestyle] is going away by any means,” she said. “We always want to create products that help motivate women to be their best selves and improve their healthy lifestyle. So we always believe that consumers are looking for a product to help them do that.”
