J. Crew and New Balance are back teaming together on the iconic 998 silhouette once again with the upcoming “National Parks” Pack. Honoring Crater Lake and Death Valley, both selections pay homage to the preserved lands that feature some of the most beautiful scenes in the entire world. The brand’s have always worked well together in the past, creating unique looks the likes of their “Hilltop Blues“, and “Beach Balls” creations. With environmentally appropriate color schemes, the Crater Lake iteration dons an icy blue colorway while the Death Valley pair is dressed in earthy brown tones. As usual with these two brands, quality is a must, which comes across masterfully here as the two 998s are adorned in premium suede with other materials mixed in as well.
Both selection will be available from NewBalance.com on January 26th for $180 USD with $10 of the retail price being donated to the National Park Foundation, aiming to preserve their beauty.
