In the spirit of Independence Day, you'd expect a New Balance collection to have a lot of stars and stripes, or something that looks a lot like the recently unveiled J.Crew and New Balance sneaker collaboration in bold red, white and blue. However, the New Balance Authors Collection takes a different approach to celebrating America, using the many great literary works of American novelists as inspiration for the New Balance 998s.

There are several different parts to the collection, including a series of shoes designed after 'Bespoke Authors, 'Distinct Authors' and 'Connoisseur Authors,' paying tribute to great tales like Moby Dick. The sneakers are all made in the USA and are set to go on sale for about $300, starting on July 1st.
