New Balance has been on a roll with a plethora of great collaboration shoes lately like the Concepts SEAL 999, La MJC x Colette x Undefeated 1500, West NYC MT580, and the Sneaker Freaker 998, so today we thought it would be a proper time to break out a Vintage Ad from 1993 featuring a nice selection of the brand's classic models.
Within this awesome four page ad New Balance explains why they don't need any gimmicks to make the best shoes. They reference both the Reebok Pump and the PUMA Disc systems and declare them unneccessary and unneeded when you already make the best fitting shoes. New Balance have been one of the most tried and true, favorite brands of runners for decades that pride themselves on making their shoes in a variety of widths, so it's hard to dispute their claims. On the two page spread of the ad is the totally dope M678 model (who wouldn't mind seeing a retro of these?) and then the last page contains a full lineup of both men's and women's shoes, including some of the models we've seen returning lately. Have a favorite?
