Continuing to go from strength to strength, New Balance kicked off the new year with its second Bricks & Wood collaboration, a neutral-toned silhouette that features prominent mesh holes, cream hues, and fluffy laces.
The sneaker expands on the brand’s newest model, the 9060, which honours the New Balance 990’s history while updating it with cutting-edge features. It has been a popular choice for recent collaborations, with versions coming from Bodega, Mowalola, and Joe Freshgoods, in addition to a slew of high-quality general release colorways.
To celebrate their home in the South Central area of Los Angeles, Bricks & Wood has decked out the New Balance 9060 with architectural details from Bricks & Wood co-founder Kacey Lynch’s grandmother’s house.
The upper consists of premium hairy suede in an off-white colour, with grey spacer mesh inserts for visual variety. The eye is drawn away from the upper’s neutral tones and toward the unique, segmented pod midsole construction with hits of vibrant grass green. The shoe is finished off with fuzzy laces and co-branded details as it prepares for what we anticipate will be a slew of bright hues in the new year. If this is any indication, 2018 should be New Balance’s breakout year.
