Worth the price tag?
The American multinational sportswear brand, New Balance, have seemingly been trying to increase their footprint within the streetwear scene as of late, that’s why it’s not surprising to hear that they have teamed up with the iconic Japanese fashion label that is Comme des Garçons for a small capsule of collaborative footwear.
As for what to expect from the duo, they have opted for the three silhouettes of New Balances’, these being the 990v5, 1500 and 574. All of which have been revamped with a more subtle approach than we are used to seeing in the sneaker scene. Interestingly, the sneakers have maintained a fairly low-key aesthetic with very few hues appearing on any of them, in fact, not even branding is boasted outwardly on this easy-going pair.
Take a look at three pieces below, if you like what you see then you are in luck as they are all set to drop over at select New Balance retail spaces on the 1st of February.
