UPDATE: We've just got our hands on more shots of the J.Crew x New Balance 998 'Green Back' colab and they look like – money! Peep the images of the green and gold sneakers above and then get ready to swap some actual cash to cop. The 'Green Back' will drop October 15 at select J.Crew stores.
J.Crew and New Balance team up once more on a colab celebrating a shared American heritage. The snub nosed profile of the 998 is rolled in a cashed-up colourway aptly dubbed the ‘Greenback’. Paying homage to the paper currency used in the 1860s during the civil war, the premium suede and leather construction is made up in a crisp selection of greens. The iconic ‘N’ insignia and midsole shine in gold, a combo that could also find favour with fans of the Green Bay Packers and Scrooge McDuck alike.
The J.Crew x New Balance 998 'Green Back' is predicted to drop October 15 at select J.Crew locations. Stay tuned.
