After revealing its forthcoming Fall/Winter 2019 range, Korean streetwear imprint thisisneverthat has returned with the lookbook for its forthcoming collaboration alongside New Balance. Taking note of the United States Armed Force’s physical fitness uniform and various Polartec fleece pieces, the collaboration hones in on militaristic sportswear through a color palette of Olive, Khaki, and Black, further revealing a new iteration of the shoe brand’s made-in-USA M997 trainer.

The shoe totes a unique color-blocking of the aforementioned colors, with its upper crafted out of Khaki colored nubuck, further met by a mesh toe box, with PFU Olive and Black paneled hits found throughout.

Other pieces in the range include long sleeve t-shirts and socks.
