To coincide with the release of Spring 2, Kith and New Balance return as the duo reimagine the 992 and 998 silhouettes. The colorways are inspired by the iconic 1300CL, applying the Steel Blue colorblocking for the first time to both models. Lux pigskin suede is combined with sport mesh and reflective panels to create a timeless approach to this Made in USA pack.
Originally introduced in 1993, the 998 silhouette showcases a pig suede overlay throughout with mesh underlays. A reflective N logo and collar accent are featured while other elements include a pebbled synthetic tongue top, heel tap and forefoot underlay, cotton laces, rubber outsole, all rounded out by an ABZORB midsole to provide comfort.
Alongside the 998 is the 992 silhouette, which was recently reintroduced for the first time since 2006. This style features similar traits such as a pig suede overlay with mesh underlays. A reflective N logo and collar accent provide added style while additional features include a synthetic tongue top and heel tab, woven USA label on heel, cotton laces, and rubber outsole complimented with an ABZORB SBS midsole for comfort.
Kith x New Balance 2020 releases alongside Spring 2 on Friday, May 22nd at 11AM EST on Kith.com.
