Elite Edition is back! Barber Shop Pack available 2/3
For winter 2014 Boston-based New Balance will debut the New Balance Elite Edition Barbershop Pack. Inspired by the old-school cultural institution of the barber shop, the New Balance Elite Edition Barbershop Pack will be available in three styles, the New Balance 1600, 580 and 999 beginning February 3 on NewBalance.com.
As menswear becomes more tailored, traditional barbershops are reclaiming their relevancy and popping up in urban areas. The New Balance Elite Edition Barbershop Pack color story is based off the red, white and blue barber shop poles found outside classic barbershops. Additional details include pig suede and mesh uppers; striped aglets; and, checkerboard patterned inserts inspired by the floors of vintage barbershops.
The Elite Edition Collection is curated from New Balance’s most heralded styles from partnership programs and is one of the premium athletic offerings from New Balance for the sneaker enthusiast.
