What We’re Saying: These are the moments we wished we lived in Japan!
New Balance has dropped an exquisite three-sneaker pack comprising the 992, 1400, and 57/40. All three sneakers feature beige elements and are reportedly constructed using recycled materials. The pack is women’s-exclusive.
The 57/40, which is a chunky, modern-day version of the iconic 574, combines a white mesh base with tan and beige suede overlays, hits of purple on the heel, and grey/teal on the midsole and laces. The 992 — New Balance’s shoe of 2020 — is predominantly cream with hits of beige on the tongue and the heel. The 1400, on the other hand, features a plush, beige leather upper with a cork “N” logo and furry suede on the heel and tongue.
All three sneakers are available at New Balance stores in Japan. Information on a release outside of Japan is currently unavailable.
