Menswear label J.Crew continues its impressive streak of New Balance collaborations with this gritty new concept dubbed the “Concrete Jungle”. Manufactured in NB’s Skowhegan, Maine factory, this Made In USA 998 silhouette gets more love from J.Crew as the sights and sounds of a night out in the city are implemented onto the various upper panels of the sneaker. It’s clear that this model is a favorite of the designers of the brand, and they’ve certainly got the chops to color up a pair of 998s with the best of ‘em. The J.Crew x New Balance 998 “Concrete Jungle” will launch exclusively on September 13th at J.Crew Men’s Stores – that’s the Liquor Store in NYC, Copley Place in Boston, and On Lan Street in Hong Kong. Following that initial release, the shoes will be available at wider J.Crew shops across the globe and at JCrewMens.com on September 17th.
