With Nike, Converse and Puma all blasting out the ballistic nylon, it’s about time New Balance get on board with the bumps. Applying the fabric to the oft-unseen 501 silhouette, New Balance have created the Ballistic Pack, featuring hits of suede on the toe and heel, leather logos and a classic gum sole. Available in black, green, burgundy and navy, you can catch the pack in the third quarter of 2012. Pics via The Distinct Life.
