New Balance has rolled out impressive releases consistently all year. This release recaptures a bit of the retro flair of New Balance with a bit of the new in the revised 1978. Kith is carrying this drop, but it’s not a KITH collab. It’s a Stance x New Balance drop and that was initially exciting when I heard and saw this, but honestly it’s just another dope release from New Balance. The Stance element of the collab is barely noticeable as it consists of the aglet branding. The color combination is fantastic on both models and will possibly draw interest so I should write a Should You Buy To Flip? but considering that it will definitely be a limited release they will be hard to get and that will make it hard to grab a pair for yourself. Take a second and use the source link to read more. What do you think of both pair?
