We New Balance fans have always appreciated the brand for its resistance to passing trends while putting out product that places quality front and center. This past year has seen a readiness on the part of the long-running sportswear company to experiment and break new ground, and its adherents have pretty much followed every step of the way. Case in point: these reworked versions of the venerable 998, built with premium Horween Leather and carrying an equally premium price tag of $400. Originally previewed here, the upcoming colorways of the luxe New Balance 998 “Horween Leather” can be seen in further detail in the gallery below. Expect them to launch October 1st at select NB retailers, including Philadelphia’s UBIQ.
