Ever since Teddy Santis began sharing teasers of his first New Balance collection on social media, it has been one of the most anticipated releases from the brand. And now, the wait for the Aimé Leon Dore founder’s first drop as the creative director for New Balance Made in USA is almost over.
Shown here are the sneakers from Santis’ first “Made in USA” collection that will hit shelves this week. The drop includes three grey-based iterations of the popular 990v1, 990v2 and 990v3 silhouettes, with additional styles to be released in the coming months. The capsule will also include a set of matching apparel ranging from sweatshirts, t-shirts, sweatpants, and shorts.
“As a brand, New Balance has always been drawn to nontraditional and independent creators, which is what makes Teddy such a perfect fit for New Balance MADE in the USA,” Chris Davis, the chief marketing officer and senior VP of merchandising at New Balance, said. “Not only does he have an incredibly authentic and passionate tie to New Balance, but he’s uniquely positioned to help preserve the history of MADE, which is the foundation of the brand, while simultaneously guiding its evolution through his unique design sensibility.”
Santis’ first New Balance “Made in USA” collection will be released on April 28 at Newbalance.com and at select global retailers. Prices for the drop range between $65 and $200.
