new balance spring 2013 preview New Balance Spring 2013 Preview

We’ve seen a bit of what New Balance has in store for early 2013 thanks to the summertime tradeshow circuit in Europe, and this latest viewing might represent most of the entire first quarter lineup.  With nearly a hundred styles on display, it’s easy to see that NB’s SP13 is shaping up to be something special.  In addition to the New Balance 574s we’ve seen already for Q1 come several other styles that bring the total for that model well into the double-digits, while on the other end of the spectrum, the 2040 and 1260v2 remind us that this brand still commands top billing in the performance running sector.  In between, you’ll find a variety of classic silos like the 999 or 996 in the original grey suede getup that we were lucky enough to see a small run here in the States.  That detail suggests that the set includes some possibly Asia-exclusive designs, so click through to see them all and stick with Sneaker News for updates.  via Hupu

Ronnie Fieg x New Balance 999 “Blue Steel” – Sample Process

June 13th, 2012 by | 9 comments

Though its name and general style was borrowed from an all time classic, Ronnie Fieg‘s New Balance 999 ‘Steel Blue’ isn’t an exact copy of the legendary 1300 by that same moniker.  In fact, it took six different revisions before RF’s latest NB collaboration was ready for retailers, everything from material selection and distribution to which parts of the branding will make the most impact.  Given that we rarely see samples with more than one (set of) serious revision(s) for any particular sneaker design, it’s especially interesting to see the stages this one went through in order to get ready for its Friday, June 15th release date.  Click through to see the entire process, let us know how these compare to Ronnie Fieg’s best collabo kicks and stick with Sneaker News for updates.

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.

Pimp My Kicks x New Balance 999 Customs for Emory Jones

Historians will look back on MTV’s Pimp My Ride with favor, not just because of the hilarious Xzibit meta-meme it birthed, but because of the decidedly positive newspeak in its very title.  ’Pimp’ has been thoroughly appropriated to mean ‘tricked out’, and in this particular case, we’re talking about a custom sneaker design crafted for an influential record exec.  The Pimp My Kicks x New Balance 999 was crafted for RocNation’s Emery Jones with a ‘South Beach’ flavor in mind, and much like the upcoming LeBron 9 Elites by that name, these give the color scheme a new spin opting for a grey base upon which MIA’s famed pastels are placed.  Check them out in greater detail along with the sick 1 of 1 laser-etched wooden box and let us know where these rank in the still-growing ‘South Beach’ neighborhood.

Right after the release weekend of Ronnie Fieg’s latest collaboration with one celebrated running imprint and we get our first substantial look at his next. Previewed here is the New Balance 999 that Fieg has been cooking up, apparently a take-off on the beloved ‘Steel Blue’ colorway of the New Balance 1300 that his Kith space recently re-launched in 2012. The sneaker does play with the traditional Steel Blue makeup a little bit, switching out the mesh sectioning towards the toe box and ankle areas in favor of a perforated suede treatment. Click through for a better look and stick with Sneaker News for release info on this modern take on a New Balance classic from Ronnie Fieg.
