“Keep Austin Weird” is the unofficial slogan of the Texas capital, a statement that asserts the municipality’s unique identity as a college town with cosmopolitan flavor that prizes individuality and free thinking. Austin sneaker boutique Nice Kicks, in collaborating with New Balance on the brand’s popular 1500 model, has come up with a sneaker style that’s classically appealing, in seeming contravention of its hometown’s credo. Built with a nubuck upper in varying shades of grey and accented with hits of red throughout, the shoe is in no way weird, but uniquely compelling thanks to high quality materials and an unbeatable combination of colors. They’re set to release at the shop’s VIP Launch Party on December 15th.
