In an interesting new collaboration, New Balance has teamed up with luggage brand Briefing and Japanese retailer Beauty & Youth by United Arrows. The two way collaboration includes a special colorway of the CM1700 running shoe and two bags by Briefing, all featuring collaborative branding. All pieces come in nice classic grey colorways with hints of red. In terms of bags the collaboration includes a waist bag and a larger size duffle/shoulder bag. Both the sneaker and the bags feature nylon/mesh and suede uppers.
A release of the pack is scheduled for January 2012 at Beauty & Youth.
