The duo’s latest venture gives us two tonal 998s inspired by America’s national parks. There’s an aqueous, deep blue version inspired by Oregon’s Carter Lake, while the Death Valley National Park that straddles California and Nevada has lent its earthy tones to a brown version.
Given the theme, it probably goes without saying that both premium sneakers have been made in the USA. So if you’re living in the States, now’s the time to strap on a solid sneaker, get out in the wilderness, and show support for your national parks and monuments (the way things are going they may not be there for much longer....)
The J.Crew x New Balance 998 ‘National Parks’ will be available from January 26 at select stockists, as well as online from New Balance.
