New Balance and Jimmy Jazz joined forces in creating a small capsule in honor of the highly anticipated upcoming superhero film, Black Panther. The limited two-piece collection features two styles -- the New Balance 574 Sport and the New Balance 990v4.

The 574 Sport takes a modern approach on the classic silhouette by incorporating details of Black Panther's suit; it is crafted with rugged leather and knits, blended with black and silver accented details. It also has 3M laces and a Marvel branded lace keeper. On the insoles, the Black Panther icon is imprinted for further branding. The New Balance 'N' is a reflective silver and overall there is a debossed tribal detail to celebrate the Wakandan culture.

The 990v4 is also inspired by the superhero's Vibranium suit with suede and cordura details to combat the weather. This style also has the same reflective 'N' and lacing details.

The shoes will be available at select Jimmy Jazz stores and online starting on February 9th.
