You don't make friends with salad and you don't become a major sneaker brand by lazing about and smelling the roses, so New Balance kick on here with more fresh American-made 998 goodness. This thing runs off a grey base but there's no doubting the stars and stripes vibes, with barber shop speckle and grabs of red and blue up back and on the midsole. A 3M reflective 'N' logo keeps thangs shining in the bright daylight and lets bypassing folk know what's up. Murrica! You can get patriotic at Feature Sneaker Boutique now.
