Fall is around the corner or as us Midatlantic folk like to call it, “False Fall”. With that said we’ll be seeing lots of upcoming kicks in autumn tones as well as workboot color ways. This brings us to New Balance’s recent collaboration with the workboot gurus, Red Wing. Lending their aesthetic to the 997 runners, the shoes are treated to premium leather (around the throat and tongue) and a whole lot of suede. Contrast stitching, an off white midsole and a robust gum outsole complete the look. As far co-branding goes, Red Wing is super discreet with only their insignia on the insoles. Expect these to hit the shelves of Sneakers and Stuff this Friday, September 6th. [Link]
Hopefully other retailers will be carrying shortly after.
