With over 75 years in the footwear industry, New Balance’s general trajectory has remained largely on course — with a huge spike of interest during the runner craze making a decent impact on the label. Though indefinitely pushing out classic grey schemes on their most iconic models, the New England based company has ushered in quite a few surprise hits with many an inspired design, now dishing out some vibrant themes onto the sleek 998. Resembling a few of the motifs popularized by the ever-eclectic Parra, the newest iteration of the model dresses its gorgeous pig suede in a deep burgundy tone, accenting both the mesh and technical overlays in a muted range of grays. Popping out in vibrancy, the logo hits found on the profile and heel shine in an aqua blue. At a price point of $180 USD, these New Balance 998s are available now at Premier.
