The 600 series from New Balance is allocated for sneakers made for basketball, and the new BB680 models are inspired by rugged work boots. The high cut silhouette lends itself well to a boot-like style, and the nubuck upper material helps to realize the transformation. Other than the nubuck, ankle support is constructed with canvas and the mesh material on the tongue helps to ventilate the shoes. With the use of round shoe laces and metal eyelets, it emphasizes the outdoor aesthetic. There are Camel and Wine colorways available and these are currently available through pre-order at atmos and these are scheduled to drop in November.
