Not often enough does J.Crew get credit for being among the foundational menswear retailers that transformed with time from classic men’s fashion to the hybrid, convoluted prism we know it as today. Further, their influence in introducing lifestyle New Balance silhouettes to the middle-aged male fashion consumer is grossly undervalued.
Having been instrumental in the growth of the brand in the ever evolving menswear market, today they debut the J.Crew x New Balance 998 “Hilltop Blues” edition. Paying tribute to the ballparks that litter each borough of New York City, this premium 998 masterfully color blocks a suede navy midfoot alongside brown and tan tones that act as the supporting cast. Hints of red add a touch of vibrance to the otherwise causal customer, that comes finishes with a comfortable Abzorb midsole.
Look for the J.Crew x New Balance 998 “Hilltop Blues” in stores on June 15 at J.Crew.
