New Balance and Carhartt WIP Are Releasing a Joint Capsule Collection

New Balance and Carhartt WIP have collaborated for the first time on a capsule collection that includes a reimagined version of the classic 990v1 sneaker silhouette as well as a series of apparel and accessories.

For this first-ever collaboration between the two iconic streetwear brands, they found inspiration in humble neighborhood gyms found across America. The resulting styles draw from a palette of dark blues and grays, as trophy motifs and collegiate-inspired typography feature throughout.

New Balance 990V1 x Carhartt WIP

First debuted in 1982, the New Balance 990v1 was originally a running shoe, combining mesh and suede in muted tones. New Balance x Carhartt WIP reimagines its upper in hairy suede with a signature mesh underlay while also featuring a woven tongue label as well as subtle reflective elements at the heel tab and logo.

The accompanying apparel further expands on the capsule’s theme. The Carhartt WIP Arcan Jacket appears in a washed-out canvas, with the addition of a snap-on hood. Both its outer and its blanket lining feature graphic elements as seen within the collection.

Additionally, there is a series of jersey-based staples—including a new short sleeve sweatshirt, which have been garment-dyed and washed. The collection is rounded off by graphic t-shirts and accessories, including a reversible beanie, towel, and a water bottle produced by Nalgene.

The New Balance x Carhartt WIP collection will be available from September 16th at selected retailers globally and selected Carhartt WIP stores, as well as the Carhartt WIP and New Balance webshops.
