New Balance 801 Celebrates 20th Birthday at Notre Chicago

Turing 20 in 2018, the New Balance 801 is back to getting busy with Mother Nature.

A true trekking shoe, the model made for all-terrains took over college campuses in ’98 as backpacker wearers in the Northeast pounded the snowy pavement on the way to class.

While higher education claims said kicks and old school hoops fans will remember Stephon Marbury rocking these on the cover of SLAM, the shoe has always been most at home in the great outdoors.

Shot and styled by Notre Chicago, the New Balance 801 has released at the brand’s online shop ahead of schedule.
