For the first time in over 30 years, an American, Meb Keflezighi, won the men’s event at the emotionally charged Boston Marathon yesterday. To commemorate the Marathon, St. Patricks day, and all things Boston, New Balance dropped the Irish-green version of their 990s recently and they are smooth.
When it comes to all green shoes, it can get tricky if it’s not executed right. Too much green in the wrong places, and they just end up looking goofy and not enough green just looks too regular. Lucky for us, New Balance knows exactly what they’re doing with these babies. Featuring a kelly green outer, speckled midsole and little details along the lacelets and heel area, these are really a gem.
Scroll through to see these in their element and cop them over at Karmaloop if you’re feeling lucky. Word to Daft Punk.
