BLACK MILK X ALBUM OF THE YEAR

THINGS I NEED ON MY FEET::THE NEW BALANCE EDITION

Designer label ALMOND enter familiar territory having worked with New Balance before on a vividly coloured 1500. But instead of going at it alone, this time around they have L.A. retailer Ron Herman to input some ideas. And this idea is a bold one, but the same can be said for any shoe that chooses to represent its country’s flag as part of the design; in this case, the U.S. one stands tall on the H574J hiking boot hybrid’s heel tab. The rest of the sneaker is presented a more subtle fashion and finished off in a navy suede with hues of white and gray on the toebox, NB logo and midsole.
