Joe Freshgoods' New Balance 1000 Collab Is Coming Soon...

New Balance is bringing back its archival 1000, first released in 1999. Teaming up with one of its best-known collaborators, Joe Freshgoods, the new release is now highly anticipated and after several teases and early looks, we now finally have an official release date.

First teased by sneaker leaker woganwodeyang, the revived kicks arrive in two core colorways of "Pink Mink" and "Black Ice," featuring co-branding and special detailing throughout. The modular kicks arrive with mesh and leather uppers, featuring pearlescent overlays and a chunky, defined sole.

Since the first tease, a new "Off-White/Green" colorway has also been spotted, though official release information for its third iteration is still to be confirmed.

An initial raffle for both pairs is now open, closing on April 11 before the kicks officially drop on April 12 via the Joe Freshgoods' website for $170 USD each. Following the initial release, New Balance is set to host its release on April 19 at 10 am EDT.
