From Le Coq Sportif's hummus-inspired sneakers to Saucony's donut-themed runners, unconventional shoe design inspirations keep startling and surprising the consumer with relentless expansion and creativity. Recently, footwear giant New Balance offers up another unorthodox design for its mixed-material runner offerings.
The 'Caviar & Vodka' pack consists of three updated models of the company's iconic 1500, 770 and 991 silhouettes. Characterized by strong colors that are meant to mimic the palette of "the luxury pairing of delicacy and liquor," New Balance's product is able to combine aesthetics with comfort and performance. While the construction is made to be breathable and highly durable with a 990v3 midsole, the exterior of the silhouettes successfully makes use of the shoe's design inspiration in a fashion-forward way.
