Within New Balance’s roster of impressive collaborations this year is the Brick & Woods New Balance 57/40—a suede-clad proposition inspired by South Central, Los Angeles. For those who weren’t able to obtain a pair, NB has added a similarly styled pair to its mainstay line of 57/40s.
Forest green also takes center stage for this new release, although mesh rather than premium pig suede is used to accent the suede uppers. The oversized “N” logos opt for a neutral grey and white color palette as well. Furthermore, the wavy midsole overlays exhibit a cream coloring to strike a resemblance to the aforementioned collaboration. But the most notable difference is the vibrant pick outsole found on Brick & Woods’s pair. For a more lifestyle-friendly look, the inline 57/40 opts for a simple black rubber outsole to complete the design.
In other news related to The Intelligent Choice, another “Made in UK” New Balance 991 is on the way.
