New Balance is set to launch a special-edition 530, made in collaboration with the Tampa Bay Rays’ Evan Longoria. A lifelong sneaker enthusiast, Longoria selected the 530 silhouette for its clean lines and heritage, showcased here through an upper featuring a combination of black pig suede and black denim. The denim fabrication was chosen to reflect the All-Star third baseman’s personal style, while the shoe’s sheepskin lining offers a baseball glove-like feel. Additional details include a speckled midsole, “530” lace keepers with an engraved 3 as a nod to Longoria’s jersey number, and a signed “Evan Longoria” sockliner. Look for the kicks to launch May 30th through select retailers.
