Snowboarding suppliers 686 dug pretty deep into the New Balance vaults to find the Pro Court hightop, and though the above pictured model is quite obviously newer, it’s even less commonly released these days. The 686 x New Balance 790 will be familiar to long-time basketball fans and perhaps ring a bell with regular Sneaker News readers who saw them linked to James Worthy in the mid ’80s, these two relatively simple colorways carrying the kind of timeless appeal that could have released anytime in the last quarter-century. But the heavy dual-branding on these is a distinctly recent aesthetic, one that you can cop straight from Six Eight Six‘ own e-store.
