Sharing only similar store names, Black Sheep Store from Manchester, UK, and Black Sheep Skate Shop, North Carolina, have come together from opposite ends of the Atlantic Ocean for a totally unique New Balance collaboration.
The New Balance Numeric 598 “Black Sheep” is the first ever NB Numeric collaboration, with the three parties coming together to work on the 598 model which takes its design inspiration from the 998.
Decked out in in a rough, wooly black suede upper with tonal leather nubuck inlays, the upper of the New Balance NM598 is finished off with 3M reflective accents on the tongue, side and heel, as well as wool details on the the side and heel. Additional details come in the form of custom insole artwork and 3 sets of laces.
If the the New Balance NM598 isn’t enough for you, then there has also been a special edition of the Made in USA 998 created, which is limited to just 72 pairs in total across the two Black Sheep store locations.
