Best known for their high quality sneakers, New Balance is now partnering up with Chicago-based tannery for their Horween Leather collaboration. This joint effort will use the popular 998 model as the base canvas; accompanied by Horween brown leather embellishments. The color scheme for these runners is inspired by the simplicity of nature by showcasing hints of yellow accents on the paneling, grey linen, and a color-blocked ABZORB midsole. Due to the choice of fabrics, The Horween Leather x New Balance 998 is considered a luxury item – so be prepared to spend a least $400 dollars for these babies.
