1978 New Balance

Apr 4, 2017

If you fired New Balance’s 990 out of a cannon going full speed at a pair of their 247s – this is what would likely be the result. These 1978 New Balances are the picture of old school cool meets modern sensibilities.

Named after the year that the 990 shoe was released, the American made sneaker features a more minimalist and refined look than its predecessor. This is due in large part to the upper constructed from a premium pig suede that contrasts with an upper heel unit and tongue. These elements combined make for an attractive yet decidedly unflashy look for the sneaker that is ideal for any season. For a solid ride no matter where you are going, the 1978 features a fresh Vibram outsole that provides superior grip and traction in all directions. Right now these kicks are available in three different colorways, all of which are retailing for the price of $150. [Purchase]
