We first spied New Balance's "Explore by Sea" collection last month, and the thematic release has since taken on new models, all meant to pay tribute to a distinctly American variety of adventure and craftsmanship. To that end, each shoe is designed and made in New England from American-sourced materials, featuring colors and details inspired by nautical voyages and vintage schooners. There are two 998 styles, both featuring a traditional mesh and suede build, and two 997s, one in the same mesh/suede combo, and the other rendered in suede and textile. They're joined by a suede/textile 1300. Get the kicks now at Feature LV.
