“I’m from Massachusetts, and they’re (New Balance) from Massachusetts. It’s a representation of home pride.” – DJ Mars
You don’t know New Balance like DJ Mars knows New Balance.
The Boston-bred DJ, owner of one of the biggest New Balance collections, has been an avid fan of the Massachusetts-based sneaker company since a kid, and New Balance has noticed. Over the past couple of years, DJ Mars has appeared in several New Balance campaigns, with the most recent featuring him discussing how his love for NBs came about.

20. ALMOND x New Balance 1500
DJ Mars: When these dropped in 2009, they owned the market. From the buttery suede look to the gum soles, these look right on your feet. The simple design inspirations, such as the star on the top lace hole, shows you that someone put in some effort. Small details like that make the collaborations special. ALMOND and New Balance won with this combo!
