After being revived by the veritably popular Aime Leon Dore, the New Balance 827 quickly hit its stride as it’s currently set to release OG schemes as well as a follow-up collaboration with Korean streetwear icon thisisneverthat. Now, near hours prior to the latter’s launch, the silhouette is teasing a forthcoming partnership with Miami-based imprint Stray Rats whose 990v3 is one of the most remembered in the entire NB pantheon. Dressed in striking neutrals with colorful details — as a more subtle expansion to their previously explored Joker themes — the offering puts earth tones at the helm of colorway that has been given a “SEWER STOMPERS” namesake. Along the laces and “N” logo, a vibrant red and purple accent, respectively, complementing that of the greens that subtly intermix across the forward paneling. Alongside, camo patterns adorn the webbing at the heel of both left and right pairs with their branding coming together to finish the “Stray Rats” namesake in bold silver lettering. Grab a quick look at these right here and sit tight as they’re currently expected to land later this May.
In other news, the Madness New Balance 327 should be dropping soon.
