The New Balance 998 has enjoyed a nice boost from J.Crew and Sneaker Freaker collaborations previewed and released in the near past.  That sharp eye for color is evident in the in-house designs as well, including this strong upcoming effort that mixes six different shades of grey (seven if you include the tongue backing) with black and white to make select orange elements really pop.  This is a perfect example of a low-key, highly wearable shoe whose restrained exuberance gives the casual wearer the best of both worlds.  Have a look below so you can see how they rank and stick with Sneaker News because they’re expected at retail in the next few months.

The New Balance 998 is a model that’s been making a decent amount of noise amongst NB’s classics catalog as of late. The J.Crew collaborations continue to turn more people on to the model and the ‘Hunter Green’ suede version that arrived at the end of last year was sort of a runaway hit. Next up is a subtle, almost USA looking colorway (a combo that seems appropriate given that they’re domestically made). Continue reading for a full view of the suede and mesh sneakers and if you approve then grab this New Balance 998 from Feature Sneaker Boutique now.

new balance fall winter 2013 preview New Balance Fall/Winter 2013 Preview

It seems like more New Balance previews are surfacing with each passing day in 2013, and today’s helping is a smorgasbord on display at Bread and Butter Berlin.  We see both previously spotlighted models and brand new revelations in this selection, so let’s start with the ones we know by name.  Both of the raincoat-inspired New Balance 577 ‘Rain Mac’ colorways are joined by three prototypically subdued brethren, and from there it’s all new stuff.  There are several 576s on tap including a trio with tongue tags denoting their tea-infused theme, a bold ‘raging bull’ of a 998, a couple of 1300s, four 1500s and a burgundy reprisal of the 990 OG.  Stick with Sneaker News for release info on all of them and click below for a bunch more photos.

J.Crew continues to color up their own runners via their ongoing partnership with New Balance. The latest sneaker to come from the team up is the New Balance 998 ‘Pebble Blue’ pictured above. The pair sort of echoes the sensibilities of last year’s nonnative x New Balance 997 what with its beige and brown sets that get a little splash of blue for the pop. Continue reading for the full preview of the J.Crew x New Balance 998 ‘Pebble Blue’ and look out for the sneakers at select J.Crew doors right now (or on their webshop).

New Balance 998 – Grey – Blue – Red

Of the myriad models within the New Balance canon to get the collab treatment this year, the New Balance 998 was the single one that did so to probably the least amount of fanfare. The pair quietly joined the ranks of the J.Crew x New Balance set, and was on its way to making quite a few more waves with this Sneaker Freaker curated pair until said projected was scrapped. We think the inline pairs can do the heavy lifting though, with this New Balance 998 in grey/blue/red offering up an almost-patriotic look to go with its made in USA status. Click through for a preview and pick them up on pre-order from End now.

New Balance 998 – Hunter Green

Collaborations with J.Crew and Sneaker Freaker have given the New Balance 998 some added attention in recent months, but it’s not like you’ve gotta have a guest designer tied to its time-tested lines to result in a winner.  Check out this new edition in hunter green suede, a classic NB rendition that gives us another earthy neutral for the cold part of the year without appealing to the grey and/or navy standbys.  These were originally expected as a fall release but have slipped with us into the fourth quarter, so have a closer look below and be on the lookout as they’ll arrive at retailers like Las Vegas’ Feature shortly.

Sneaker Freaker x New Balance 998 “Tassie Devil”

new balance tassie devil Sneaker Freaker x New Balance 998 Tassie Devil

The genre of sneaker collaborations has expanded considerably over the last few years, but only a select few are capable of really putting a riveting plotline behind a shoe. CNCPTS in New England, Extra Butter in Long Island, NY, and the legendary Sneaker Freaker are just some of the exclusive group of creative minds who go beyond the banality of “let’s pick out some nice colors” and delve into story-telling mode – and Sneaker Freaker’s latest footwear collaboration doesn’t disappoint. They start things off by stating that there is no true ‘theme’ for this shoe, but somehow they manage to convey a message  - even without intent.

This first look at the Sneaker Freaker x New Balance 998 ‘Tassie Devil’ proves that notion once again, as the colorway is a half-tribute to Solebox’ amazing New Balance ’1500′ Devil collab, but at the heart is inspired driven by a cause close to the hearts of Australian natives; the Tasmanian Devil is synonymous to the region Down Under, but en epidemic has afflicted the native marsupials to the point of near extinction. A healthy chunk of the profits from the Sneaker Freaker ‘Tassie Devil’ will go toward a charity to support – and save – these wild animals. A detailed gallery is just ahead, so take a look and we’ll keep you updated on release information.
