Todd Snyder Shows his Support for Pride Month with a Banger New Balance 997
Sheeeeshh — you should be Proud of this collaboration, Todd.
We’re arriving at the halfway mark of the annual Pride Month celebrations for the LGBTQ community — and after a banger start to the month in terms of celebratory sneaker releases from the likes of Nike and adidas, New Balance keep the ball rolling with the best to surface yet; this collaboration with fashion designer Todd Snyder.
Honoring the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, New York-based Todd Snyder has been tapped by the neighboring New Balance for this special edition 997 dubbed “Love” — and its an absolute banger. Incorporating the seven colors of Gilbert Baker’s LGBT Rainbow Flag in pastel hues, Todd shifts from pale blues and greens in the toe to green at the midfoot, before arriving at the warm end of the spectrum at the heel. But the boldness and vibrancy of Baker’s Flag has been captured in its true form, via the tongue and heel New Balance-branded embroidery.
