Following two successful collaborations in 2020 and 2021, titled “No Emotions Are Emotions” and “Outside Clothes,” Chicago-based designer Joe Freshgoods has now back with a third joint footwear release with New Balance slated for later this year.
For now, the only images revealed so far are two shoeboxes in pale green and orange, but early rumors suggest the upcoming pairs will come in the form of the New Balance 993. The shoebox covers feature abstract cloud artwork depicting the NB logo, harkening back to Freshgoods’ “Outside Clothes” series last year. While his 2021 release featured blue skies and white clouds, this year’s artwork teases a fierier theme with darker hues and ominous graphics.
“Made For Us” is printed in cursive on the lip, and the inside cover reads, “shhhhhh…be quiet…our imaginations are speaking,” in white text. As Freshgoods’ previous collaborations have all been deeply personal and aimed at uplifting his local Chicago community, his upcoming pairs promise to tell a story of their own.
The Joe Freshgoods x New Balance 993 is slated to set to release on the New Balance website and select retailers this April. Stay tuned for more details.
