Fans of this on-going collaboration are sure to perk up with our first semi-preview of this upcoming J.Crew x New Balance 998. In what seems to be an unintentional release of sneaker looks, this new mix of the 998 by J.Crew appears in a range of product shots for a pair of shorts in the brand's new summer collection. In this case, the 998 sees a unique colorblocking scheme, pairing light tan with a mesh base that is nicely layered with brown suede and navy. Bright red and reflective details also look to touch key brand accents while tonal laces and midsoles finish the look. Whether or not J.Crew knew what they were up to, we'll take it. Look for these to hit J.Crew stores soon.
