New Balance Mh988 (Bubblegum/Deep Green)
New Balance can afford to trade on past glories, with sales of the 574 alone enough to keep stoking the fire, but they're continuing to innovate new products too, some of which fly under the radar. FreshFoam is one of their newest inventions, it's a cushy midsole with a honeycomb design that definitely grabs the eyeballs and doesn't let them go, and they've fused the old with the new on this MH998. Not strictly inspired by the NB 998, the high-cut suede upper design borrows a little bit from a few archival runners and arrives at a fresh place. This particular colourway serves as bold statement of intent too, with deep green swamping most of the piece, while hits of tan and bubblegum pink close out the neck snapper. Look for it hitting New Balance retailers soon, we'll bring you dates when they're confirmed.
