HAVEN

Although not quite at the commercial level of where Nike and adidas currently sit, New Balance has steadily made moves in its own right over the past few years. Not only does the American-based brand boast eventful collabs alongside a pantheon of impressive design talent, including the likes of COMME des GARÇONS HOMME and Aimé Leon Dore, NB has even shied away from the streets and onto the hardwood via Kawhi Leonard.

New Balance recently unveiled its newest silhouette, designed in tandem with noted retailer, HAVEN. Up top, the pair opt for supple pigskin overlays found along the mudguard, side panels, and eyestay, with hits of Horween leather enveloping the rear. Material contrast is taken a step further with Cordura® AFT mesh cages sitting atop the vamp, collar and tongue tab. The highly reflective panels resting beneath the engineered mesh stand out as a creative touchpoint, as does the subtle speckled details informing the laces. Housed down below, is a two-tone ENCAP midsole, complete with a shock-resistant TPU insert for maximum comfort and support.

Priced at $210 USD, you can find the HAVEN x New Balance M990RG5 online now. Meanwhile, in other sneaker news, Supreme took another stab at Nike’s infamous Air Force 1 Low.
