A few months ago, I told you in an article (available HERE) about the latest collaboration between New Balance and Chicago designer Joe Freshgoods. It’s on the brand new NB 9060 silhouette that the designer let his imagination run free.
Having won a raffle allowing me to buy the pair at SNS, I suggest you to discover it in pictures on my feet.
This NB 9060 is composed of a mesh upper completed by suede and leather overlays. In a harmonious style, the side N logo and laces are matched to the upper. The model number is emblazoned on the contrasting tongue tag and on the sewn-in quarter panel tag. To affirm the collab, the JFG logo stands out on the insole and heel tab, and the words « Inside » and « Voices » are embroidered on the heels. Comfort is accentuated by a padded inner lining and a bold chunky sole.
I had a doubt about the super imposing « Dad shoe » side of this new silhouette, but I was pleasantly surprised by a shoe, certainly imposing, but racy giving it an aggressive side to the feet. The design of this collaboration is also a success with colors that blend perfectly. You will have understood, I validate in 100% this magnificent product of superior quality.
