New Balance M998CBL “Connoisseur Guitar”

Moving from a focus on literature and visual arts in 2014, New Balance has chosen this year to shine the spotlight on the American music genre of rock ‘n’ roll and its staple musical instrument. Taking this as inspiration, the M998CBL "Connoisseur Guitar" is kitted in an upper of black suede, the silhouette also incorporates a mesh toebox along with grey leather accents. Enlivened with notes of blue and red, the shoe is rounded out with a grey Abzorb midsole and black outsole, with a NB-branded guitar pick strung from the top eyelet as a finishing coda. Pick up this musical rendition of the New Balance M998CBL at various retailers, including Sneaker Politics for $170 USD.
