The new balance 3040 doesn’t get as much love as some other silhouettes, but New Balance has created two new colorways of the sneaker that will no doubt appeal to fans of the shoe.New Balance left no stones unturned with these two new colorways that both use a combination of navy and tan in opposite ways. The shoe comes constructed out of a rich combination of mesh, nubuck, suede, leather and nylon for a premium look and feel. Both pairs are finished off with white midsoles and navy outsoles. You can find these matching colorways of the New Balance 770 at select New Balance retailers this Spring.
The brand new New Balance 1978 will be making it debut this weekend. If you’re a New Balance enthusiast, you may notice that the shoe shares some similarities to the new balance 4040, which is absolutely true since the shoe is said to be a modernized version of the shoe.The whole concept and idea behind the the New Balance 1978 was to design it using the brands most premium materials, while also keeping it at an affordable price point. They manage to do this by constructing the upper out of a premium suede and leather build with subtle features such as perforation hits on the toe as well as on the N branding on the side paneling. Additional features include the reflective detailing and a deconstructed leather collar. The removal of layers/overlays and the sleek aesthetic definitely give this model a very trendy and modern look to them.
Familiar friends Concepts and New Balance have gotten together to release a new collaboration inspired by snails and royalty. Wait, what? Let’s break it down.The Concepts x new balance 950 Tyrian has been covered in a purple suede all throughout the upper for a look of royalty. The story goes that this hue of purple is inspired by the ancient process of dying garments using Tyrian Purple, a color made from extracting a natural purple due from sea snails. Due to how expensive and time-consuming this process was, the use of this shade of purple was reserved for very wealthy people and royalty.In addition to the purple suede upper, this New Balance 990v2 also features reflective detailing on the heel tab and “N” logo, perforations throughout, and Concepts-branded tortoiseshell lace locks. Completing the theme, the shoes will come housed in a special box that features snail shell graphics.
