New Balance and Sneaker Politics have teamed up on a limited edition New Balance 999, featuring an eye-catching design inspired by Louisiana police detectives who work on unsolved crimes. As an ode to these unsung heroes, the shoe — dubbed “Case 999” — draws inspiration from their typical attire: a navy blue police coat, red oxford button-down shirt, paisley tie and leather dress shoes. Consequently, the upper is done up in navy and tan pig suede with a pig leather lining, with contrasting hits of burgundy throughout. A paisley print tongue, gum rubber outsole and pinstripe insole are the finishing touches that make the case. Retailing for $165, the kicks launch September 26th at all Sneaker Politics locations and online.
