These leather shoes by New Balance have a somewhat nostalgic, sophisticated design.

The New Balance 998 'Bespoke Horween' shoes have been described as being "bomber jackets for your feet." The leather shoes are made in the USA and their design reflects that fact, with a nostalgic leather look that is equal parts sophisticated and rustic. The more striking version of the shoes comes in burnt orange and tan colors while the more traditional shoe is almost completely black with white and gray accents. The sneakers have an embossed tongue and a 'Horween Leather Co.' hanging tag.

By combining a leather aesthetic with a standard shoe design, New Balance has created sneakers that are both luxurious and practical.
