Uniting from two sides of the Atlantic, American retailer Black Sheep Skate Shop NC and the similarly named (but otherwise unconnected) British retailer Black Sheep Skateboard Store Manchester have come together for a special New Balance collaboration. The project’s shoe of choice is the New Balance Numeric 598 model, whose design takes inspiration from the classic NB 998 silhouette.
Named the “Black Sheep” 598, the shoe features a wool upper in a red, grey and black colorway, reflective details, custom UK and U.S.-themed footbed artwork, a trio of laces, and embroidered “598” branding on the tongue. To celebrate the launch of the “Black Sheep” 598, a special edition of the Made in USA “Black Sheep” 998 — limited to just 72 pairs — will be sold exclusively at both Black Sheep locations. Take a look at the New Balance “Black Sheep” 598, which hits stores November 25.
