No Vacancy Inn — comprised of the duo Tremaine Emory and Acyde — are the definition of a creative collective, taking down the walls of various subcultures for harmonious artistic expression. Tapping into their more fashion-forward mindsets, the team have revealed their forthcoming New Balance 990v3, giving past releases from Stray Rats and JJJJound a run for their money. Mesh unders and pig suede overlays are typical of the Boston label, though a small hit of black pebbled leather separates the toe box and rear-facing profile in place of the usual nubuck. Palettes are left strongly muted though still somehow bold, opting for a major use of a sky blue next to accent points of a much brighter red as seen on the laces as well as back embroidery, which spell out “WATER” and “WIFI” on the left and right foot, respectively. Reflective silver metallics as well as the standard “N” logo are painted a complimenting dark shade while the imprint’s singular branding arrives on the insole by way of a retro future typography. Grab a detailed look at the No Vacancy Inn x New Balance 990v3s below and stay tuned as more information arises.
