Sadly, most neighborhoods these days are strategically too progressive for arcades. But in years past, arcades maintained a presence everywhere and you’d be hard pressed to find one that wasn’t filled with kids and young adults alike. Aside from Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat and of course, NBA Jam, pinball machines served as a nostalgic offering of early influence in gaming culture.
New Balance muses on this notion with their latest offering, the 580 Elite “Pinball” Pack. The two-piece collection denotes a navy, red and gold edition alongside a counterpart in silver and black. Each is marked in suede and mesh fabrication with an imposing midsole to finish. Look for the New Balance 580 Elite “Pinball” Pack at select retailers including Rise NYC.
