Where to Buy the Stray Rats x New Balance 827 “Sewer Stompers”
The Miami based street-wear boutique Stray Rats is fresh of their hot new collaboration with fashion giant Marc Jacobs, which celebrated the Year of the Rat, and now looking to capitalize on that momentum is a forthcoming collab with New Balance on the horizon. Thanks to a sneak-peek from the label’s founder JulianConsuegra’s Instagram, we now get a look at their next-up effort: the Stray Rats x New Balance 827.
This latest edition of the ongoing partnership is a subtle colorway that moves away from previously released Joker themes on the 990v3 silhouette and into a subterranean color palette. The aptly named “SEWER STOMPERS” perfectly sets the tone for the design, a medley of materials make up the mesh, nubuck and nylon upper that’s principal hues are earthy-brown variations. Contrasting red and purple “N” branding, red laces, and green piping is seen on the eyestays and nylon paneling creating eye-catching details that offer some relief to the sewer-esqe undertones. Sitting at the foundation the shoe is a green Abzorb tech midsoles and black rubber outer soles for a lightweight comfortable ride, finishing the look are camouflaged heel overlays that read “Stray” on one shoe and alternatively “Rats” on the other.
