Bicycle frame maker Independent Fabrication and New Balance have teamed up to promote the upcoming Single Speed Championships in New Zealand with the New Balance & Independent Fabrication M498.

The New Balance & Independent Fabrication M498 is styled after a frame that Independent Fabrication made specifically for the competition. The suede shoe is wrapped in green all around with black and yellow accents. While I'm not much for fixies, I am a huge fan of this shoe. Stats for Cycling-Inspired Sneakers Trending: Older & Chilly
