UPDATE: First detailed look at the 'Distinct Mid Century Modern' 998 is in and it does not disappoint. Available right now at stockists including Sneaker Politics, stay tuned as we track down the deets on the remaining parts of the collection.
It looks like it's out with the new and in with the old over in Boston. Taking design cues from the 1050s and '60s, New Balance have given the classic 996, 997, 998 and 990 runners a mid-century makeover. Constructed with the premium materials you can come to expect from New Balance's Made In USA division – including woven textiles and Horween leather accents – this earthy hued pack is looking nothing but quality. No release date has been given, but stay tuned.
