The ever-changing sneaker landscape is full of ebbs and flows, and while styles and even brands rise and fall in popularity, there will always be those individuals out there who never waver from what they love regardless of what everybody else is doing. Here in the U.S., we’ve seen a big spike in the popularity of classic New Balance runners in recent years. Love for the brand’s retro archive has been going strong for a long time in Asia and Europe, but it’s taken a little longer for the fever to catch on to the same degree in the Stateside sneakerhead community.

“He bought ‘em, I rocked ‘em and from then on, I just didn’t stop.”

Massachusetts native DJ Mars has been wearing his home state’s most famous footwear products for decades now, and it all started when a fashion-forward uncle hooked a school-aged Mars up with his first pair of navy and grey New Balance 574s. That kind of experience gives DJ Mars the kind of perspective many sneakerheads are only now developing as NB’s Classic lineup becomes increasingly widespread, and it serves as the basis for his desert island list of the best five designs they’ve ever released. It’s a pretty safe bet that last year’s spectacular CNCPTS x New Balance 999 ‘Kennedy’ will be on the list with its New England yachting inspiration hitting close to home; which others do you think he’ll name? Click through to see a video rundown and let us know which is your favorite New Balance of all-time.

Raekwon x DJ Mars x New Balance ‘History of Mixtapes’

raekwon dj mars new balance 1 Raekwon x DJ Mars x New Balance History of Mixtapes

“We took pride in the sneaker game because we grew up under the OGs that . . . put us on to what was fresh.”

Few things can match New Balance’s identity of pure ‘classic’ style, but this latest odd coupling makes total sense when you hear the first bars of Criminology and find yourself instantly transported back in time to 1995. Wu-Tang Clan OG Raekwon the Chef did some of his very best work on the ‘Purple Tape’ that guest starred self-proclaimed ‘Wally King’ Ghostface Killah, and two years after Cuban Linx Pt. 2, he’s linking up with New Balance and DJ Mars on a retrospective on the last two decades plus of sneakers and streetwear as part of Mars’ ‘History of Mixtapes’ project. NB is one of those brands that has endured Raekwon’s entire reign and you can see his thoughts on their timeless runners by clicking on the jump below to watch the full video.

“Where will we run next?”

That’s where New Balance wants to direct your curiosity with this new video series starring Atlanta’s NB enthusiast extraordinaire, DJ Mars.  You might expect that he’d be up at 6am, but this first clip shows that it’s not from a night of partying, but rather, in preparation for another day of grinding out what looks to be a pretty sweet life.  Mars gets started by checking the net for the freshest new material, then it’s out for a run in the New Balance 992 with his dog, Max.  And judging by what goes down once he’s ready for action, that’s a solid morning routine, one which you can see documented in the first of a multi-part video series that follows after the jump.  Have a look and stick with Sneaker News for more on this DJ Mars x New Balance teamup.
