The sneakers that are made in the USA continue their outdoor trend with the New Balance 998 “National Parks”. After a wave of “Seaside” 577s, this new NB 998 stays inland in natural tones. A tonal grey base composes most of the upper in mesh and suede overylays, joined with a blue suede heel counter. Red accents are seen on potions of the midsole, as well as the manufacturing tongue tag and branding outline. Final detailing comes in the form of a speckled midsole, color stitched laces, and a brown heel tab for a rugged touch.

From down by the seashore comes the New Balance 577 “Seaside”.

An aquamarine green base in mesh and leather is accented by navy suede panels on the mid-foot and along the mudguard, while orange detailing is present on the logo and inner lining. Individual character comes in the form of a pictorial tongue tag that includes a dock and a lighthouse, a plastic 577 lace charm, and the British flag sewn onto the heels to remind everyone where they were made.
