Todd Snyder works in collaboration with footwear label New Balance for the sixth time on debuting the new Pale Ale 990 sneakers. The limited edition footwear model draws inspiration from Snyder's favorite cold brew drink and it is translated through its tonal scheme. It is predominantly cream across its uppers with some contrasting details finished in gray and brown. The sneakers are constructed in the US and are limited to only 200 pairs.
The Pale Ale 990 sneakers' cream uppers are constructed from vegetable-tanned leather materials and they incorporate the ENCAP technology on their soles. Additional details include their tonal lacing system and outsole crafted from rubber. The shoes are now available for purchase online at Todd Snyder.
