The Joe Freshgoods x New Balance 90/60 will soon see a global release.
The sportswear giant announced via statement that the “Inside Voices” 90/60, which is the first collaboration on the brand’s newest performance and running-inspired lifestyle silhouette, will arrive on May 20. Retail price for the look is $180.
“Inside Voices is the follow up of ‘Outside Clothes.’ I want my community to feel represented in the emotions and intimate moments captured in my campaigns,” the designer, real name Joe Robinson, said in a statement. “There’s nothing like warmth and laughter shared around a table once you’re inside with your loved ones. Shutting out the world and focusing on what really matters is what this campaign is about.”
New Balance said the 90/60 borrows technology elements from both the 990 franchise and early millennium running silhouettes. The look features nods to the 990 heritage such as the classic ‘N’ logo, and employs soft nude and sky blue hues the brand said emulates “the warmth felt inside of Black households.”
