Taiwan’s INVINCIBLE was last seen on our shelves with two recent adidas collaborations, and this time the boutique tackles New Balance’s 574. This model varies the application of materials like hairy suede, mesh, and leather on the left and right shoes and also gives the model a vintage look with scrapes and scuffs throughout. INVINCIBLE branding hits the insoles to mark the collaboration.
New Balance reinterprets their classic 900 series with their 2018 MSX90 silhouette with the “Surplus” Pack. The black model has a mesh upper with grey, forest green, and navy blue overlays with a pink pod on the midsole, while the white option has veg tan and grey overlays with a red pod on the midsole.
Both styles are available now in-store at our Jersey City location and online at PackerShoes.com
New Balance MSX90BG “Surplus” – Black/Forest Green/Navy ($140)
New Balance MS247TT “Tritium” – Black/Solar Yellow ($140)
New Balance’s Tournament “Tritium” version of the MS247 adds premium materials to a bold colorway. Leather and breathable mesh combine on the all black upper that sits atop alternating pink and solar yellow REVlite midsoles. The outsoles and tongue tags also alternate on the left and right shoes for an added color pop to an upscaled edition of a newer silhouette.
Iconic New Balance styling hits a Made in the USA grey, navy, and red M997. Pigskin suede hits the light grey panels on the upper, which combines with navy leather on the heel and mesh on the toe. 3M detailing on the collar and near the toe box adds visibility, while the ENCAP midsole adds cushioning.
The New Balance MS247 grafts in a classic grey color way on its sleek new model. With its slimmed-down bootie sock design, this version uses gradient greys on the suede and mesh upper with a reflective N logo over an off-white REVlite outsole.
New Balance applies a “Vodka and Caviar” theme to two Made in England pairs of their classic 1500 silhouette. The pair meant to resemble the “vodka” part of the theme uses multiple shades of grey with mesh, suede, and smooth leather on the upper with their trademark ENCAP midsole. The other “caviar”-themed pair is a mix of dark brown pebbled leather on the mudguard with black suede, olive suede, and olive mesh and a gumsole finish.
A second colorway arrives of the updated New Balance MSX90 in a classic white and royal blue colorway. The 99X series keeps a throwback feel with some classic 900 detailing, while adding a sock upper to the perforated leather and mesh combination on the upper that sits above a REVlite sole.
New Balance updates their 900 series with the MSX90V1 that cuts weight and adds breathability. A sock-like collar provides a snug fit, and high grade grey suedes mix with mesh on the upper which includes perforations on the toe. A 900 series-inspired tri-colored sole finishes off the new model.
Quality materials and construction abound on this Made in the U.K. model of the New Balance M991/1500. Black pigskin and grey mesh comprise the upper with multiple 3M hits for visibility. ENCAP cushioning softens the landing, while a rubber sole keeps traction.
New Balance’s trademark styling appears on five sneakers set to hit the shelves. A dusty pink “Susan G Komen” edition of the M990v4 contributes a portion of its proceeds to Breast Cancer awareness, mixing mesh and nubuck on the upper with an ENCAP midsole for stability. Three colorways of the 574 Sport are available as well–one in sport blue suede and mesh with a sock construction over a white FreshFoam misdole and another in a classic grey suede with a navy “N” logo over a dual-color midsole. A bright white knit upper makes up a 574 Tournament edition with details inspired by the soccer pitch and punctuated with hits of infrared on the midsole and heel pull, all set over a classic gum outsole. A similar white and infrared colorway hits the 247 with a REVlite midsole and gum outsole.
