The King of collaborations, Todd Snyder, has partnered with American footwear brand New Balance to design a limited edition pair of 998’s sneakers. The silhouette was created as an ode to New York’s iconic Old Town Bar, and features a black and tan combination suede upper, with tan mesh and a white branding. Snyder’s reasoning for this inspiration was his love of both the colours and pub.

I love a Black and Tan, and I always love an old school pub. It was great to work with New Balance to Customize a smart-looking sneaker that captures the retro vice in a modern way.

The limited edition Todd Snyder NB1 998 are available now through Snyder’s online store. Or if you’re feeling creative you can design your very own pai at New Balance’s NB1 Project.
