New Balance has partnered with female footwear company P.V.S for the limited-edition P.V.S x New Balance shoe. Inspired by a timeless art form, these sneakers are coated in a layer of splattered paint.

The unique rework of the iconic 996 silhouette features a dark base upper which is barely visible under a stunning layer of paint dabs. Its eye-catching look mirrors Claude Monet's recognizable impressionist painting style. Furthering its artistic aesthetic, the P.V.S x New Balance sneaker utilizes a diverse palette which includes green, magenta, turquoise and yellow tones.

The shoes are packaged in a glamorous custom box with a gilded exterior and the words "Galactic Girls Bridage" boldly printed across the front, while the inside features a monochromatic print of mystical caricatures.
