Combining over a century of footwear design and textile expertise, two classic American brands; New Balance and Chicago based leather manufacturer Horween; come together to produce one of the most superior collaborations to date.
Founded in 1905, Horween dominates its market as one of the oldest running tanneries in the States, seeing them lend their exquisite aniline leather used for an ultra-premium iteration Made in USA of the classic 998 runner.
Check out the following video for a deeper look into Horween's production process, brand philosophy and heritage.
