New Balance, by in large, offers up their 998 silhouette for collaboration and with good reason. The foundational model often stands as their best partnering shoe; this one with Japan-based BEAMS is another reason to believe it to be true.
Electing for a greyscale aesthetic maneuvered in suede and mesh fabrication, 3M reflective detailing marks the upper alongside muted hints of blue. A co-branded footbed and “BOSTON” and “TOKYO” mark each heel.
Look for the BEAMS x New Balance 998 on March 31 in Japan.
