Heidi Klum's ramping up her sneaker gig.

The "America's Got Talent" judge has partnered with New Balance on a line of active wear for fall '14.

Aimed at yoga and fitness enthusiasts, the line features animals prints, moody hues and a slashing effect that feels very on-trend.

"In this collection, I also played with fabric cutouts that mimic a skeletal structure for an edgy and fashion-forward look," Klum said in a statement. She used highlighter yellow and oxblood maroon to "give it a strong streetwear vibe."

New Balance's signature 890v4 running shoe and 715 training shoe complement the apparel, which ranges from outerwear — bomber jackets, parkers and hoodies — to fitness gear, including tank tops, capris and tees.

Speaking about the collaboration, Kerry Kligerman, the brand's EVP of apparel, underlined the team's approach to design. "[The new line] combines New Balance's expertise in innovative technology and performance with Heidi's commitment to sophisticated style to create a versatile collection for women that is both everyday wearable and chic," she said.

The collection is available in stores and on the brand's website, and retails for $35 to $95.
