Retro New Balance running sneakers usually aren't used for winter wear, but that may change with this new collection.
The group, shown here, is inspired by old-school skiing fashion, and hopes to gain some traction in the alpine getaways and lodges that people will be flocking to when the snow starts fo fall. The sneakers are all of the made in USA persuasion, with fan-favorites like the New Balance 997 and New Balance 998 showing up.
A couple pairs in the group use Horween leather, so expect high prices to reflect the premium materials on those.
Watch for these New Balance sneakers to show up at U.S. accounts for Fall/Winter 2015.
