New Balance is again showing off their American heritage with the upcoming “Authors Collection”, which is inspired by American novels and their creators. The result is an earthy set that channels a library-like aesthetic of leather bound books and the sort of tweed clad folks behind them. The group will be split into three parts – the “Bespoke Authors” collection featuring Horween lathered 998s in similar limited numbers, and then the “Distinct Authors” and “Connoisseur Authors” collections with a wider range of models. Continue reading to see shots from the collection’s debut at last night’s exclusive New Balance event in NYC that Sneaker News was in the building for, and stay tuned to see more of what went down.

I guess these shoes are designed for writers.  On behalf of all writers, may I just say that we write in our socks.  Thanks for thinking of us, though.

@BananaKarenina Under what circumstances would you be trampling books? That makes no sense at all, even for Twitter.

@eugenia_will I thought this was going to be about books that wear shoes, which would be a lot more palatable. And cleaner.

@BTParsons @newbalance I'm completely baffled by this collection and why it is at all related to Authors. Help me out, BTP, Bitters Sage!

@JenHoward Nothing quite says "I'm a casual yet cultured 30- or 40-something male" like these. Reading Hemingway while grilling steaks, etc.

@aarontpratt @JenHoward What's wrong with being 30 or 40 or even 50.  I don't worship youth like some ....

@JenHoward @pfyfe Was going to suggest a shoe inspired by The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner but the author was British. Drat.

I'm a sucker for New Balances, especially anything 997-999. Even though I likely won't be able to get my hands (or feet) on these I always have to applaud the craftsmanship.
