New Balance 501 (Ballistic Pack)
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.
