New Balance will be kicking off 2015 with a bang, releasing a slew of classic silhouettes next month that are sure to raise expectations for the rest of the year. A common motif among many of the Made in U.S.A. models is the presence of a guitar-pick hang-tag, indicating another thematic collection along the lines of the Connoisseur Authors range. The various colorways of the 1400, 997 and 996 are sure to be crowd pleasers, with the latter model coming in a unique nubuck and canvas build. Even more unique is the MRL996DA “Deconstructed,” which ditches the interior padding and adds a REVlite midsole. The kicks are available for pre-order now through End Clothing’s online store.
