Elvis is in the house…or at least his kicks are. The latest rendition of the New Balance Classics Women Made in USA shows off a suede construction and New Balance doused
the New Balance Classics Cheap in a hunk-a-burning Navy. It’s the quality of the sneaker that is important to note, as well as the class and sophistication that the color scheme brings. While Navy makes its appearance along the upper, light Grey follows up on the New Balance logo and heel. Meanwhile, Black reinforces the panels and White finishes up on the outline of the logo and midsole.
New Balance dropping another high quality retro runner in a clean and stylish colorway isn’t exactly news. It’s just something you’ve come to expect from the only sneaker brand still manufacturing some of their models in the USA. Speaking of being made in America, this latest edition of the New Balance Classics Men seems to carry a certain patriotic light thanks to its color palette in red, white, and blue tones. The classic runner goes for a predominantly blue upper, actually, sporting a blend of dark navy suede with a shade of lighter blue for the mesh toe box and leather details on the tongue and ankle.
If you’ve noticed over the last year or so, New Balance Classics Sale collaborations have become far less frequent. Only choice individuals and shops get to color up these American-made runners, but J.Crew seems to be immune to the brand’s selective process because yet another collaboration has hit stores. This 998 is dubbed “Royalty”, and it features a very J.Crew-esque mix of green and navy as well as a sudden pop of neon on the upper.
The New Era x New Balance Classics Price Sport pairs an iconic New Balance footwear franchise with New Era’s signature cap silhouette for a truly authentic style that is a nod to both brands heritage. Created with New Era’s signature wool twill fabric on the saddle and foxing and premium black leather on the tip, collar strap, heel tab and tongue label, the gum outsole pairs nicely with a black Fresh Foam midsole. A co-branded insert showcases heritage New Era logos, and a metal New Era lace and lock rounds out the details.
