The Swedish reference shop Sneakersnstuff starts the year 2021 as it ended 2020 : in beauty. After re-imagining the iconic adidas Superstar at the end of December (article available HERE), SNS is teaming up with equipment manufacturer New Balance to bring its personal touch to the 920 silhouette.
Introduced in September 2020, including an elegant collaboration with Patta, the NB 920 is inspired by the brand’s 900 and 1000 series. This model is « Made in England », created in the New Balance factory in Flimby using premium materials.
The retro-look shoe is dressed in a palette of mainly orange and fir green colors with yellow branding details.
It consists of a deep orange mesh upper with overlays of high quality pig suede in a bright orange color. This base is enhanced by fir green accents, such as the tongue with New Balance Made in England branding embroidered in yellow, the inner lining and the insole embellished with co-brandings. The black color chosen to define the heel tab, heel clip and laces, adds cachet to the pair. To complete the design, we discover reflective 3M details and the lateral N logo in dark grey and yellow. A fir green dubrae of laces honors the collaboration with yellow SNS branding. The whole is based on an off-white midsole with ENCAP cushioning combined with a black rubber outsole with touches of fir green, thus finalizing the look.
This sneaker will be part of a complete textile collection with the same color palette : fir green, orange, white and black, named « SNS Sports World ».
The SNS x New Balance 920 will be released on January 7, 2021 on the SNS application via a draw for a price of 200€ and the complete « SNS Sports World » collection will be available on January 15, 2021. Good luck !
