Michigan’s Premier dives into the state’s history a bit with their upcoming project with New Balance. Known for being the home state to the first automobile…the Ford Model-T, the shop takes the Made in the USA, New Balance 998 and infuses in it the spirit of yesteryear. Offering up a rich suede based upper of black and tan to match the particular old school model that inspired the sneaker. Also worked in are subtle leather spots, assisting in creating a viable timeless classic. Release is on tap for August 22nd at Premier with additional New Balance retailers to follow on September 5th.
