New Balance announced today that the first collection of the Super Team 33 2008 project has been designed by the New Balance USA team and will feature a theme inspired by luggage. The Luggage 998 shoes will debut at 33 select retailers worldwide in early March 2008 and retail for $200.00.

Available in three exclusive designs, this new limited-edition collection celebrates the trend shift from multi-colored, patchwork designs to richer, more understated design. Luggage was selected as a collection theme to support this trend evolution. The first of three shoe designs honors the rich and subtle nature of sophisticated high-end Italian luggage. The second design was inspired by limited edition vintage traveling trunks while the third shoe???s design pays homage to modern Swiss Army luggage.

The first shoe design is evocative of a person who emits a sophisticated sense of style, hence the use of luxurious materials and brown contrast stitching on the crocodile-embossed high fashion shoe. The materials used show off the changes in the animal skin in both size and depth. The second shoe, inspired by vintage traveling trunks, features glove soft worn leathers. All colors and textures of the materials used represent the many layers of a high-end trunk (i.e. protective corners, the trunk???s wrap, edges, handles). The third shoe, representative of Victorinox Swiss Army luggage, is built to appear high-tech. Using mostly black coloring and ballistic mesh, the shoe features a balance of nubuck and patent leathers to represent the balance of high polish and sandblasted components of the Victorinox luggage.
