New Balance for J. Crew 1400 Sneakers are the latest in a long line of Crew updates to iconic fashion lines. The suede leather shoes and 1400 silhouette designs look great with most any coordinates with color schemes–available in navy and pine green–blending well into your daily attire. The collaboration is an effort to support American manufacturing. Every pair rolls off the line at New Balance’s Maine-based plant and the tanned leather used in producing that premium suede feel is fashioned here in the States.
With New Balance already a leader in athletic apparel, this latest selection promises to move NB into more casual fashion scenarios. It helps having the J. Crew name behind you. For more than 25 years, the J. Crew name has made an impact in the men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing market. New Balance has been around for more than a century. Together, the two companies boast 130+ years of experience, and with this collaboration, it’s easy to see why they’ve stayed around so long.
