New Balance and Stance have announced the first of many collaborations in an ongoing series of releases throughout 2017. To mark the beginning of their partnership, the brands are releasing two unique sneaker/sock packs honouring the brands’ histories dubbed “First of All.”
The first pack pays homage to New Balance’s Boston roots and features an iconic New Balance 997 in copper rose/tan inspired by the city’s brownstone architecture. The second pack honours Stance’s San Clemente origins and sports a newly introduced New Balance 1978 in slate blue/tan pig suede inspired by the beach and surf. Both packs include an accompanying pair of Stance 144 Needle crew socks featuring coordinates of the respective brand’s original headquarters.
