New Balance and Engineered Garments make for an especially apt collaborative pairing. Neither brand has ever been keen on beating the public over the head with gimmicks, fleeting, trend based designs, or in your face branding, preferring instead to allow the quality and performance of their respective products to speak for itself. Subsequently, both New Balance and Engineered Garments are justifiably viewed as marks of discerning, sophisticated tastes.
Naturally, any collaborative output from New Balance and Engineered Garments would place a premium on materials and craftsmanship. The latest update of the classic 990 runner, the 990v5, serves as the canvas for a subtly asymmetrical design. The mesh base of the 990v5 is overlaid with pigskin suede, crocodile and lizard textured leather, with contrasting shades across the paneling of each shoe creating a non-uniform look that expertly blends luxurious refinement with athletic performance.
The collaborative takes on the 990v5 are joined by an apparel component, as a basic pocket tee featuring a clear resin application of the New Balance 'NB' logo perfectly compliments the footwear's athletic sensibility and tonal sophistication.
