New Balance x Grenson

New Balance are, as you’re likely aware, a favourite brand of ours here at Coolector HQ and one of the fundamental reasons for this is because of all the super cool collaborations that they regularly carry out with other like-minded brands but one company we were a little surprised to see them collaborating with was fine men’s footwear maker, Grenson.

Much more synonymous with making sartorial type shoes, Grenson are perhaps not the first footwear maker that would spring to mind when you think of a list of potential New Balance collaborators but you needn’t have worried because what sounds like somewhat of an unholy union actually works out wonderfully well and the finished product looks great.

The New Balance x Grenson sneakers maintain the same type of aesthetic of Grenson’s more refined forms of footwear but embraces the visuals that have become so synonymous with New Balance. Made from calf leather with a rubber sole and distinctive brown colouration, these certainly won’t be every sneakhead’s cup of tea but we’re pretty impressed with them here at Coolector HQ.

If you too are a fan of the collaborations that New Balance carry out, you’ll join us at Coolector HQ in being thoroughly impressed with this offering from Grenson and the awesome American footwear brand. Daring to be different and offering footwear that doesn’t conform to the norms, this is a great example of New Balance thinking outside of the box with their collaborations.
