King of collaborations, menswear designer Todd Snyder, partnered with Boston-based New Balance to design a custom pair of 998s, dubbed the ‘Black and Tan’.

Created as an ode to New York’s iconic Old Town Bar, this limited-edition pair  features a black and tan combination suede upper, tan mesh and white “N” logo.

“I love a Black and Tan, and I always love an old school pub.  It was great to work with New Balance to customize a smart-looking sneaker that captures that retro vibe in a modern way.”

The Todd Snyder NB1 998 will be available starting Monday, 8/15 in a limited capacity at toddsnyder.com or customers can design their own at New Balance’s NB1 Project.  All NB1 styles are made in the USA.
