New Balance, a NEC member, is teaming up with a Boston clothing store to produce a sporting themed sneaker.
Set for release on September 27th, the Sporting Gentleman shoe is a collaboration between New Balance and Ball and Buck. The shoe is based on the New Balance 585 shoe and features a camo print, “leather, plaid, and a full spectrum of earth tones.”
“With collaborations, we always try to partner with like-minded brands,” Chris Davis of New Balance said. “The collaboration with Ball and Buck, in my view, is a reflection of both of our brands’ values. Ball and Buck has an entrepreneurial spirit that runs deep, and New Balance was founded on taking risks and being nimble, two important things in entrepreneurship.”
The New England Council looks forward to New Balance’s latest shoe.
