NEW BALANCE BB550W: AUTUMN 2021 COLLECTION

Returning as a 3 (three) Part launch, the New Balance unveils its latest set of their ultra-popular 550 model sneakers. This time around, featuring subtly collegiate basketball-inspired colorways, the BB550 series expands into three all-new colorways, once again upon a White leather/suede base.

Consisting of the BB550WA1 (Navy), BB550WR1 (Purple), and BB550WT1 (Green), each primary color takes center-stage on the much-loved 550 silhouette, sporting simple and wearable two-tone colorways atop a White base. In typical 550 fashion, each sneaker is tooled mainly with a mixed leather upper, featuring perforated and smooth panels, topped with a suede toe-box surround. The thematic hits of Navy, Purple, and Green can be seen throughout the low-cut shoe on the 550 and 'NB' branding, collar panels, heel guards, tongues, and outsoles. Adding to the retro basketball aesthetic of the BB550's are vintage-like yellowed midsoles.

Release Info: The New Balance BB550 releases August 31st, 2021 Online only.

Sizing: Men's Sizing 4.5 - 12 US / Women's Sizing 6 - 13.5 US

NEW BALANCE 'PROTECTION PACK' M2002RDA RAIN CLOUD

First introduced by New Balance in 2010, the 2002 sneaker has gained traction for its retro style design, unique detailing and lightweight construction. The silhouette has been reimagined for this upcoming Fall '21 Season as part of the 'Protection Pack', designed with a deconstructed appearance. A follow-up to the previously seen cream-toned 'Sea Salt' colorway, this 'Rain Cloud' Grey example contrasts the tonal look of the former with a mixed grayscale panelling design on its textured suede panels which are layered with visually unfinished edging around the uppers, heel and tongue.

Although the sneaker sees underlays of mesh for breathability and comfort, small coloured embellishments appear throughout the branding and midsole. A tonal grey rubberized 'N' logo sits on each side panel outlined by a white thread embroidery. Completing the look is a weathered grey midsole and black which appears dusted slightly off-white in color matching the upper's grayscale design. New Balance keeps comfort as key with their ABZORB and N-ERGY cushioning technologies to provide support made for wear.

NEW BALANCE BY TOKYO DESIGN STUDIO: SUMMER '21

Tapping its Japan-based collective once again - New Balance unveils its latest capsule by NB Tokyo Design Studio. Utilizing retro and modern aesthetics, the 2 shoes featured in this Summer 2021 Collection offer premium constructions and fresh designs. The Boston-based brand's Tokyo Design Studio draws inspiration from street & menswear fashion as well as technology in their latest creations.

Working atop one of NB's most iconic silhouettes, the 574, TDS gives it a dressy makeover layering luxurious smooth leather and pigskin suede overtop the classic mesh panels. A striking 'Classic Burgundy' contrast can be seen at the heel of the 574 while the often seen 'N' side logo's are remove subtly. Giving the 574 its dressed up look are a welted midsole (cushioned inside with EVA foam), and treaded VIBRAM outsole providing elevated style and usable traction.

Offering a completely different scope from the 574TDU, Tokyo Design Studio unveils its Niobem Concept 2, a technology-based 'sneaker-meets-sandal' silhouette. Covering most of the shoes upper is a breathable mesh material, that is matched by tonal suede overlays, as well as an 'Indigo' blue midsole. Showing off its high-tech features, the Niobem Concept 2 is seen tooled with a VIBRAM outsole for traction and grip on uneven surfaces. Finishing off the sneaker-sandal is an all-new buckle fastening system in place of a traditional lacing.

AIR JORDAN 1 MID SE 'BRIGHT CITRUS'

Jordan Brand has seen a streak of sought after releases of the timeless Air Jordan 1 silhouette and its variants. This Summer 2021 sees an eye-catching seasonal tone of 'Bright Citrus' orange which was previewed earlier this year on an the Air Jordan 11 Low, also as a Women’s exclusive. The brand switches things up in a reverse appearance on the Retro 1 Mid SE (Special Edition) with the 'Bright Citrus' shade seen applied on the rubberized leather underlays and collar with a crisp white leather overlayed on top.

The same simple white shade decorates the side panel Swooshes and midsole, keeping the design a bit more toned down to allow the bright pop of color to take the stage. The orange hue also dresses the Wings Logo which appears on the side collar along with matching insoles that are contrasted by a white Jumpman logo. The lacing system, while simple in appearance, includes speckled reflective detailing. Other highlights to the mid-top sneaker include a white tongue that is contrasted by a 'Bright Citrus' Jumpman logo that completes the look for the all-new Ladies design.

Release Info: The Air Jordan 1 Mid SE 'Bright Citrus' is now available Online only. Any pairs that remain will be made available In-Store at a later time.

Rules: One pair per customer, multiple orders or orders placed with multiple units will be cancelled and subject to a non-refundable processing fee.
