Did you know that the upcoming Barneys x New Balance 1700 pair glows in the dark?

You may have seen images of the sneakers floating around recently, but you probably haven't seem them with this luminescent look. The shoe manages to look pretty muted when the lights are on, as the upper consists of a black full grain leather, a cream pigskin suede, and just a little bit of reflective detailing. The New Balance 1700 hasn't typically been too celebrated of a silhouette, but we'd imagine the Barneys stamp of approval will help this one out quite a bit. Watch for them to release at that store on October 25th for $185.
