For their 40th year anniversary, Japanese department store BEAMS is set to issues a special collaboration with New Balance. Available in beige and navy, the updated 1400 model was utilized and given a premium reworking in premium suede and leather. A nice touch is the "40" highlighted in orange on the tongue for a subtle hint at the collab, while the tones used remain clean and understated- reflecting the retailer's aesthetic. I'm a huge New Balance fan and am looking forward to picking up both colourways. For more information check out BEAMS' website.
