In my opinion, this is the greatest New Balance shoe ever made. If you know about these you should know how hard they are to find and how often they get released. I believe that David Z. is the only shop to carry a very small run this season. Earlier this year New Balance released a very small run of the JP edition which are $300. These right here are the originals, the same joints I sold back in 1996. The colors and contrast on this style are absolutely perfect and I can only say that about a hand full of sneakers. To be able to buy an American made classic for $120 is outstanding. You could purchase them today for $120 at the David Z flagship (556 Broadway) or place an order over the phone (212.274.9044 ext. 690)
