Just last week, we gave you the scoop with the first look at Ronnie Fieg’s upcoming collaborative New Balance SMU-the New Balance 999 ‘Steel Blue’. Following up on that initial preview we’ve got a much clearer view of this take down of the famed New Balance 1300 of the same name, a sneaker Fieg has pegged as one of his most beloved models in that cannon of impeccably clean retro runners. Click through for a better look at the ‘Steel Blue’ colorway as ported onto the more angular, smaller N model of the New Balance 999, which will arrive serendipitously on Friday, June 15th, coinciding with the 30th birthday of Mister Fieg himself.

These are releasing "Globally". So they should be a little easier to get your hands on! Not a 1 of 300 release!
I remember buying my first NB's and my mom laughed at me and said they were old people shoes. Not like i care what my mom thinks of my attire i just thought it was funny having an old person say im wearing old people shoes.
Hmmm.. Interesting he took the steel blue colorway of the 1300 and laid it over the 999. Not bad at all.. I imagine retail will be $130 at Kith and then $300 plus on ebay 10 min after they selll out.
