"The new balance 574
is one of the most interesting New Balance projects I’ve seen in a while. Rarely does the Boston-based footwear brand lend collaborators a chance to create their own model from scratch, largely opting for highly detailed colorways of popular models like the 99x series and 524. However, the unveiling of the 327 during Casablanca’s Paris fashion shoe was perfect. Debuted in the label’s homeland of France, the 327 takes inspiration from tennis clubs for a sporty, yet luxurious feel.
Converse’s converse sneakers
initiative has been the focus of their sustainable efforts in recent months, though now it appears something new will be joining that lineup. Check out the new Chuck Taylor All-Star Crater, built from Nike’s Space Hippie materials.This year, the brand introduced an assortment of new eco-friendly initiatives, like the Space Hippie collection currently in the midst of its release cycle. The shoe’s are built entirely from waste material, things that Nike would have otherwise thrown in the trash (inspiring the collection’s slogan “This is trash”).
The all-new new balance 990
has not yet been announced for release, though they are expected to drop alongside the Parisian brand’s Fall 2020 collection. The retail price of the brand new silhouette has yet to be unveiled, but given New Balance’s penchant for luxurious materials, we expect them to come in somewhere around the $180+ range. Check out the teaser images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more New Balance release news.
Juniper coming in a soft grey tone, and the purple cabbage, in, well, bright purple.
Converse’s sustainability program has garnered a lot of attention since it debuted last Fall, rebuilding classic converse outlet
sneakers with more environmentally-friendly materials and manufacturing processes. Thankfully, the Boston-based brand appears to be ramping up these special releases, with new styles hitting retailers on a seemingly weekly basis. Today, we have an early look at the next release form Converse Japan, which employs the use of natural plant-based dyes sourced from the Food Textile to create to smooth new colorways, “Juniper” and “Purple Cabbage”. Both pairs come with fully-dyed canvas uppers, with the Juniper coming in a soft grey tone, and the purple cabbage, in, well, bright purple.
