Helmed by Justin Saunders, independent design entity JJJJound has quickly become popular within the footwear realm by way of minimally-crafted collaborations with the likes of Vans, Reebok, and New Balance. Each release on their web-store has only sold out quicker than its previous one, resulting in prices to skyrocket over double its retail price points. And after taking a breather from sneakers to venture out into other apparel and lifestyle products in more recent memory, the brand is looking to get back into the game this year as they have just teased their forthcoming 992 collaboration with New Balance. Being that the silhouette has received a noticeable push this year with customizable options, the return of its classic colorways, and even an exclusive sold at KITH, this project certainly makes sense. From what we gather through this first look, it appears that this rendition will be presented with a leafy green suede base layer, and will be accompanied by neutral tones of clean white midsoles and ivory shoe strings for a similar vibe to one of previous their Vans Old Skool variations. Keep it locked for more information regarding its official release date and price.
In other news, Lemonade Air Max 1s from Nike’s Powerwall Collection are returning this year.
