New Balance has tapped Action Bronson for an upcoming sneaker collab.
The Queens-born rapper made his pro wrestling debut on an episode of All Elite Wrestling (AEW) last week and his sneaker of choice for the ring was his unreleased Action Bronson x New Balance 990v6 “Baklava” collab.
The moment was also re-shared by Action Bronson on his Instagram account last week and in the series of photos and videos showed a closer look at his sneaker project. The Action Bronson x New Balance 990v6 “Baklava” features a multi-colored makeup starting with a yellow-based upper and is coupled with a brown mudguard. Metallic silver hits appear on the eyestay and tongue and is paired with purple shoelaces. Breaking up the look is a two-tone blue midsole and outsole.
