With America’s birthday just slightly in the rearview, where fireworks rang loudly and patriotic hues were a collective theme at cookouts and pool parties alike, this time represents the onset of summer and many of the country’s time-honored traditions. There are few things more traditional in America than bad food. For which hot dogs serve as the absolute worst.
They do, however, make for a great theme where sneakers are concerned. Menswear retailer J. Crew proves this notion true with the release of its “Mustard, Ketchup & Relish” New Balance 998. Colored in an array of hues that represent the bun, dog and supporting condiments, vibrant suede adorns the classic silhouette which rests above an Abzorb cushioned sole. Bursting with patriotism, this peak Americana release stands on the podium of cleverness as it archives its message without the conformity of red, white and blue.
