Asphaltgold is making room on the shelves and is looking forward to a portion of newness from the successful brand New Balance: on July 16, the New Balance 9060MAC will be released and with it the latest silhouette from the US sporting goods manufacturer. The 9060 makes use of classic elements of the 990 series and combines them with loud, futuristic eye-catchers.
Thus one finds for example the characteristic "2 Tabs" of the 990 series on the toebox, overall the upper resembles classics of the 9XX series, the material combination of suede & mesh could hardly be more iconic, the wavey sole design of the 860 can also be found in an abstract, bulky variant on the 90/60 - including proven ABZORB cushioning in the midsole.
Just last week, New Balance launched the promising silhouette with none other than Joe Freshgoods on a joint collab.. After already successfully collaborating on iconic models like the 990V3, the designer & creative director now moves into untrodden territory, giving the new style pastel summer vibes - while the MAC comes in a more subdued, understated colorway.
But that doesn't detract from the futuristic look - on the contrary, the composition matches so well that it's versatile with a wide variety of outfits. Or as New Balance itself describes it: Versatile as a Swiss army knife.
