J. Crew x New Balance 998


J. Crew and New Balance have released images of their latest effort in their longstanding collaboration. Dubbed the “Pebble Blue” 998, this follows New Balance’s traditional style cues, opting for a more conservative look. I’m hoping that in person this shoe will resemble some of the cues from the nonnative x New Balance CM997 “Dune” which dropped this time last year. I’m of the opinion that the 998 is often overlooked in the New Balance 990 family, and 2012 didn’t bring many releases in that style. Hopefully 2012 changes that (and brings back the 997, as I’ve heard it will). As with all 990 series New Balances, comfort and support is the top priority here, and the Abzorb foam present in the sole will cradle you to sleep. Available now from J. Crew for $140
