Snapback enthusiasts and sneakerheads should stay on their toes for the latest New Balance and New Era collaboration. This recurring collab will be released on October 14th, 2017 and it features the classic 547 Sport with an added new twist.
Priced at US$150, the New Balance X New Era collection offer a revamped 547 Sport, made with grey wool accents and black leather. The 547 Sport is a minimalistic and monochromatic masterpiece, with the exception of its striking orange outsoles. On the insole, expect to find various phrases and slogans about New Era like “The Cap the Pros Wear!” and “Originators of the True Fitted”.

Not only did New Balance redesigned the 547 Sport, as one of the renowned cap company worldwide, New Era also contributed in designing a special snapback with the same material as the revamped iconic New Balance sneakers. The 9FIFTY snapback in this collection is as minimalistic as the 547 Sport, designed without any patches or logos aside from the New Balance initials as well as New Era’s own.
This is not the two brand’s first joined collab with each other; they have previously released a sneaker in 2016 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the MT580 sneaker. This collab also followed New Balance’s venture with external brands like Stussy in September, PHANTACi in August, Dover Street Market in July, and J. Crew in the beginning of 2017.
