Action Bronson’s affinity for New Balance has been well documented over the years so it should come as no surprise that the Queens rapper and the Boston-based sportswear brand have a sneaker collab on the way.
This week, Bronson teased his upcoming New Balance collab by sharing an image of a co-branded Baklava x New Balance shoebox on his Instagram story. Despite not sharing a first look at the shoe, we do know that the project is centered around a New Balance “Made in USA” model as labeled on the lid of the shoebox.
There are currently no release details available for the Action Bronson x New Balance collab, but stick with Sole Collector for new developments including a first look at the shoe in the coming weeks.
UPDATE (09/24): More details surrounding Action Bronson’s upcoming New Balance collab have emerged. In his debut wrestling match on All Elite Wrestling (AEW) yesterday, the rapper wore his unreleased New Balance 990v6 collab shown in the Instagram post below as well as the images captured by photographer Scott Lesh. As of now, release info for the Action Bronson x New Balance 990v6 has not yet been announced by either of the parties involved.
UPDATE (03/10): After months of teasers, including last week’s Full Size Run appearance, Action Bronson has announced the release date for his upcoming New Balance 990v6 “Baklava” collaboration. The sneakers will release Friday, March 17 from specializinginlife.com followed by a global newbalance.com drop on March 24 for a retail price of $220.
